Re: What are the differences between Saxon and Everyday Math?

I am not sure what the use now because DS2 and DS3 don't bring home a lot of homework but I know it isn't everyday math. Now that my oldest is in 6th grade and not doing the simple problems anymore it is so much easier. Good Luck with your decision.
ETA here is how they teach double digit addition
Whoa! That took me a bit to figure out! Why in the world do they teach it that way? That really doesn't seem to make sense!
