Item Description...
Advanced Mathematics fully integrates topics from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis. Word problems are developed throughout the problem sets and become progressively more elaborate. With this practice, high-school level students will be able to solve challenging problems such as rate problems and work problems involving abstract quantities. Conceptually oriented problems that help prepare students for college entrance exams are included in the problem sets.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Saxon is the King of Rote.  Jul 2, 2008
There are some things that can only be mastered by rote and there are other things for which rote learning is simply hazardous. In this case, mathematics.

First, students who successfully complete the Saxon math cirriculum don't need to worry about not scoring well on standardized tests. If this is your sole or primary concern, this or any other "cookbook" text will do. If, however, you are interested in REALLY learning mathematics, and MASTERING it, you need to abandon this cirriculum before it is too late.

Saxon does not teach you math. What Saxon does is outline a recipe for any given problem, and then has the student plug-and-chug ad infinitum. This is not math. Math is more than rote computation.

Math is not an instrument, like Saxon contends. Mathematics is really more of an art. Does a successful artist/painter master his delicate and difficult art by drawing the same image over and over again?

Students that successfully complete this program will be left with the false impression that they have mastered mathematics when in fact they have not. They will be in a for a rude awakening when encountering higher mathematics, especially mathematics in which theory, if not necessarily trumpeting application, is equally balanced with application. You can guess as much when Saxon writes in his Algebra 2 text: "It is important to understand why we do things in algebra, but it is also important not to let the emphasis on understanding interfere with our ability to do." NONENSE! If you know why, then you know how. And the why should always come first.

Unfortunately, there aren't any alternative texts, so far as I know, that I can heartily recommend. So all I can suggest is that the serious student of mathematics look around. I did this for Calculus, and came across three excellent texts by three outstanding authors: Michael Spivak, Tom Apostol, and Richard Courant. Their texts put Saxon's and all the other cookbook texts on the market to shame.
Advanced means advanced!  May 11, 2008
I used this book for my Junior and Senior year in high school. Even though I spread it out over two years (something they recommend you do, depending on your circumstances), I didn't find it slow at all. It teaches many challenging math concepts that are quite advanced (hence the name). I took a pre-calculus course from a community college my senior year, and at least 90% of the material in the college course had already been covered in the Advanced Math book.

On a side note, a lot of the word problems in this book are quite amusing.
Amazing  Nov 14, 2007
I am currently using Saxons book, and it has greatly increased my understanding about Pre Calculus. I have been using Saxon for three years (since i was in 6th grade) and have failed to find a flaw in their work. The one-star review written doesn't understand their teaching method. By having a wide variety of problems in each problem set, Saxon really gets the lesson in your head. I currently teach myself the material and have a 98 average. If you REALLY want to learn Advanced mathematics, get this book!
Awsome for cheating  Nov 13, 2007
Dawg so if your ever failing "Euclidian" Geomotry just order this and you can get your homework done in about 5 minutes. hahahaha I had a 54 in Geomotry and after buying this i got my grade up to a 76. What u know about that?
Excellent help for homeschooling  Jul 2, 2007
This is a great help for homeschooling since we have to figure most things out by ourselves. The textbook only provides answers to the odd-numbered questions but not the actual solutions. This book shows the steps to the solutions and includes both odd and even problems. This is a useful companion to an excellent math book.
