NEW RECOMMENDATION: We now recommend Shormann Prealgebra eLearning Course with Video Instruction for Every Lesson, Video Solutions, and Interactive Quizzes and Exams with Automated Grading. 


How does it work?

Watch this short video to view how the DIVE for Saxon Math course works!





Dr. Shormann teaches every lesson and investigation in the Saxon textbook, including the essential instruction that is missing from the lesson in the textbook. Designed for schools, Saxon assumes the full lesson was presented in class. Therefore, the lesson in the Saxon text is only a summary for the student to review later. That's why John Saxon recommended an experienced instructor to teach his curriculum. 


For example, when lesson 40 builds on a concept taught in lesson 20, the book doesn't mention it. However, in the DIVE lectures, Dr. Shormann reviews lesson 20, teaching how the new concept is simply adding one more step to what they already know. This creates “bite-sized” lessons that are easy to understand and makes learning Saxon faster and easier.

Sample Lecture

Sample Course - Everything you need to complete the first 10 lessons.








Dr. Shormann teaches every lesson step by step on a digital blackboard that looks and sounds like a real classroom. The only difference is, you can easily pause, rewind and fast-forward the lecture, learning at your own pace. With degrees in aerospace engineering and science, Dr. Shormann has over 15 years experience teaching all levels of Saxon Math. His unique experience enables him to understand how all the lessons in a book fit together as well as how the curriculum builds all the way through Calculus and Physics.



Teaching three to five practice problems in each lesson, Dr. Shormann reviews previously learned concepts and connects each "bite-sized" concept to the next. This makes complex concepts easier to grasp while showing students the big picture. During the lecture, students work interactively by taking notes and working the practice problems with him. They are encouraged to pause, rewind, and fast-forward until they fully understand the new concept. View sample lectures on the 



Connecting Scripture with math and science, he teaches math as the God-given language of science, a tool for understanding God’s creation and the purpose and pattern evident in Creation. The history of mathematics is also discussed which shows the tremendous Christian heritage of mathematics and science, and how all mathematics resulted from a study of His creation. It doesn’t take long to discuss, but it is important to remind all students that God is the Author and Creator of all knowledge, including mathematics. Consider this: in our world, there exists a huge collection of facts, all subject to interpretation. Who do you want to interpret those facts for your child, a Christian or a non-Christian?  



After the lecture, students complete homework problems in the Saxon textbook. Each homework set provides continual review of previously learned concepts. Research has shown this method superior for increasing long term retention and recall time but it can be a problem for students who need to re-learn forgotten concepts. With DIVE, the student simply re-watches the corresponding DIVE lecture which is printed in parentheses next to each question. Better than giving them the answer, the student relearns the forgotten concept and immediately applies it to the problem; significantly increasing retention.



The Saxon Homestudy Kit includes a Solutions Manual which shows how to work each problem step by step. We recommend reviewing the correpsonding DIVE lesson first, then consult the Solutions Manual if further help is needed. If more help is needed, you can email Dr. Shormann for more detailed explainations. However, our program is so comprehensive, this is rarely necessary. SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY BY CLICKING ON THE REVIEWS TAB.
