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.

Why use Saxon Math?
How does DIVE work?
Digital Interactive Video Education (DIVE) CDs teach every lesson in the corresponding Saxon Math textbook. Each lesson is taught step by step on a digital whiteboard that looks and sounds like a real classroom. The only difference is you are able to pause, rewind, and fast forward, learning at your own pace. They are taught by Dr. David Shormann who holds degrees in Aerospace Engineering, Marine Chemistry, and Limnology from the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University at College Station. He teaches from a distinctively Christian Worldview. Connecting Scripture to math and science, he shows students how math is the God-given language of science which can be used to better understand God and the world He created.

This has helped my daughter work independently in math. She can watch the lesson and begin her work while I teach her younger siblings. Its not a lot of extra bells and whistles...but I appreciate that it is efficient and well explained. It doesn't take a lot out of the day and my daughter is able to track with it really well on her own.
your child can review the the lesson by himself

Its very convenient to have a tutorial online and saves you a lot of time, which your child can go over and over by himself
Love this program and the people behind it

My daughter struggles with dyslexia and other learning challenges, so finding a curriculum that "fits" is nearly impossible. But Shormann math has both an excellent curriculum, with clear explanation of Saxon Math and helpful repetition, , AND an excellent learning specialist who answers all of my questions about how to modify DIVE and ,maximize success. I'm thankful to God for the Shormann's and the gift that they are to our homeschool!
Working out great!

This has been such a huge help to me this school year! It enables my 10 yo son to work independently on math so that I can focus my time and energy into other subjects that need more 1:1.
a tremendous help

My son and I have been using Saxon for three years from 3rd to 5th grade. My son who has reading difficulties took long time to finish each lesson. I love Saxon but I was about to give up because it became such exhausting task for me and my son. Now, he can watch the DVD lesson and breeze through the problems. He is progressing nicely. Thank you!
