Re: Saxon math
We used Saxon last year and we didn't like it. It was monotonous for my son and for I. I actually thought it moved slowly but introduced certain things before ey got the basics down. For example, we were doing square roots before division, or graphing coordinates before division. I thought the order of introducing subjects was all over the place. We did 3/4 of the book for Saxon 3, but had to do Singapore 3 this year because many of the basics just weren't covered. He is doing so much better with Singapore, but it just depends on your child. I would say it is not very hands on.
