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.

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 corresponding 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 explanations. However, our program is so comprehensive, this is rarely necessary. SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY BY CLICKING ON THE REVIEWS TAB.



The edition of the DIVE Video Lectures must match the edition of your Saxon Math books. For example, if you have the FOURTH EDITION of Saxon 7/6 books, you must use the FOURTH EDITION OF DIVE 7/6. While they are not a perfect match, the DIVE video lectures for Saxon 7/6 4th Edition teaches almost every lesson in Saxon Course 1. Below is a cross- reference syllabus, which tells which DIVE lecture to watch for each Saxon Course 1 lesson. Cross Reference Syllabus: DIVE Math 7/6 and Saxon Course 1 link:

    The dive videos have truly helped my son with Saxon 7/6. It also helps me with my time as a homeschooling mom of 7. I am able to help other children while my son is being taught by an expert teacher.

    Excellent help for my boys

    Posted by Tara D. on 26th Nov 2022

    These videos are a great addition to our homeschooling journey. Dr. Shormann gets right to the point and provides several examples to demonstrate the new material. And, my children can return and review these videos again at any time. I would highly recommend!

    Tremendous help for our homeschool

    Posted by Laura on 12th Aug 2022

    Dr. Shormann's DIVE video courses have been the ticket to math success for our homeschool. Math calls for an atmosphere that fosters an attentive attitude, and I just could not accomplish this on my own. I actually enjoy teaching math, but I felt like I was floundering and my kids were definitely not thriving. Outsourcing math to Dr. Shormann has been one of the best things I've done to simplify and reduce stress in our homeschool. Dr. Shormann’s teaching style is outstanding. He is clear and succinct while giving plenty of examples. He incorporates age-appropriate study skills in each course, which aids the student in their other studies. I agree with some other reviewers — a DIVE course is better than a tutor for our family. Many thanks to Dr. Shormann!

    Finally! Math that my child can connect with.

    Posted by Nancy F. on 21st Nov 2019

    We have used several other math curricula only to be frustrated at every turn. With DIVE, my son has been able to not only connect with the lessons but also take control of his learning, His math understanding has improved immensely. I highly recommend DIVE math!

    Best math help

    Posted by Celeste on 7th Nov 2018

    I homeschooled and graduated 2 children that struggled with math. I found DIVE for the next 2 middle schoolers. This is better than a tutor. Thank you for helping me.

    Dive has been an extremely helpful addition to our homeschool math. The instructor is very good at relaying each day's lesson and we really appreciate that his practice problems are different from those in the text book. We also greatly appreciate the Christian foundation and references to God. Great program, we highly recommend it!

    Perfect for Large Families

    Posted by Jodi S. on 1st Sep 2017

    I loved the great foundation Saxon gave my boys (8 and 10) but I found it impossible to teach multiple grade levels. DIVE videos (we stream via ipad and laptop) have allowed my boys to continue to progress independently. I am able to focus on their younger siblings for that time. They now take more ownership in their learning because they are fully independent in their math. I could not be happier! May the Lord continue to bless you in your endeavors.
