Product Description

 

     2017-5-19-vhx-category-header-for-download-stream-edited-.png

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.

VIDEO LECTURES TEACH STEP-BY-STEP 

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.

 

BITE-SIZED LESSONS INCREASE UNDERSTANDING

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 

 

TAUGHT FROM A BIBLICAL FOUNDATION

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?  

 

CONTINUAL REVIEW INCREASES LONGTERM RETENTION 

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.

 

EXTRA HELP TO ENSURE UNDERSTANDING

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

  1. Huge help for mom & student!

    Posted by Ingrid Balarashti on 30th Nov 2019

    I purchased the videos for Saxon Algebra II Advanced Math for my two eldest children. Although I can usually help them with their math with the solution manual and my own knowledge, with four children to teach, I was running out of time and energy. These videos are easy for the kids to watch and learn from and help me to have more time. My son, in Algebra II, has especially benefitted from the videos and is making rapid progress with their aid. I plan on purchasing some for the lower grades for my other children next year. I wish I had bought these so much earlier than I did!

  2. Independent Learning Must-Have

    Posted by Margaret Torrijos on 23rd Jul 2019

    As a veteran homeschooling parent of 10, I have utilized D.I.V.E. in its different formats for all my students. Dr. Shormann's teaching presentations have been an absolute lifesaver! His well-presented, easy-to-understand lessons have made our education journey possible. (100 percent acceptance rate to top universities!) D.I.V.E. is the teacher I can't be, when my students need a different explanation. I don't recommend Saxon Math without D.I.V.E.

  3. Necessary help

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Mar 2017

    We purchased this for our son. He uses it everyday to complete his Saxon Algebra 2 lessons. An example is given for each problem, one that he can both see and hear. He loves it!

  4. Great program!

    Posted by Rachel on 31st May 2016

    After using DIVE's Science programs and being very pleased, we switched to using DIVE with Saxon for math. My 9th grade son took this course, watching the daily lectures and following Dr. Shormann's suggestions for homework completion and correcting. He performed very well, passing the CLEP exam with flying colors (see my review for the CLEP College Algebra Professor). We're very pleased and plan to continue with DIVE math for high school.

  5. Best helper for Mom

    Posted by Rachele on 17th Mar 2016

    DIVE has been of great help to me as a homeschooling mom.
    I am busy with little ones who have started schooling this year. I don't have the time I'd like to have to spend with my older children with their math lessons. DIVE lessons have taken that task off my shoulders and even done a better job than I could have done anyway. My children's math grades have gone up with 10%!!!
    Thank you DIVE!

  6. Dive Saxon Algebra 2

    Posted by Tammy Heuring on 5th Sep 2015

    Excellent. Have tried other means for Saxon Alg 2 and this is by far the best.

  7. Great teaching tool

    Posted by Hd on 13th Jun 2014

    This is a great teaching tool. Dr. Shormann does a great job explaining concepts and working through the problems.
    I highly recommend this!
