Total opposite ends of the spectrum! Both spiral (review, reteach and extend on concepts continually - you don't do a unit on geometry and then are done with it until next year). Saxon is a very teacher directed, direct instruction model. Teacher tells you how to do it and then you practice it. Everyday math is more exploratory. You investigate something to learn what happens. Instead of just being told a triangle has 3 sides, you would look and many triangles to determine what us the same about them. I have no experience with either, thus is just what I have heard, so take it with a grain of salt as I could be a little off
