DIVE Makes Saxon Math Easier!

Expert Video Instruction from a Biblical Perspective

The lesson in the Saxon text is not the complete lesson. That's why John Saxon recommended an experienced Saxon instructor who could teach how the incremental lessons connect. Without this essential instruction, the student may find the Saxon lessons disorganized and confusing.  That's why we created DIVE! 

Unlike other Saxon supplements that only teach the Saxon lesson,  Dr. Shormann reviews the concept the new lesson builds on and teaches how the new concept connects, breaking complex concepts into bite-sized lessons that are easy to understand. Then he teaches 3-5 practice problems to ensure understanding. During the lecture, students work interactively, taking notes and working problems with Dr. Shormann.
