NEW RECOMMENDATION: Because Saxon does not adequately prepare students for the new PSAT & SAT, we now recommend our new Shormann Precalculus with Trigonometry Self-Paced eCourse featuring daily video lessons, interactive assignments with auto grading and grade recording, video solutions, and Q&A service with Dr. Shormann. Based on John Saxon’s original Teaching methods , this course is updated with 21st-century concepts and specific preparation for the PSAT, the SAT, and the ACT. Learn More: Saxon vs. Shormann Math


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.

    Thorough math instruction and instructor feedback

    Posted by Jana Smith on 26th Nov 2021

    I was looking for upper level math instruction for my homeschooled high school student; Dive math is exactly what I was looking for. It is streaming instruction that my student can access at his convenience, with problems demonstrated on a "chalkboard." Dr. Shormann is thorough in his instruction. My student can email him if he is not quite understanding a concept, and Dr. Shormann always replies within a few hours. My student's ACT scores have also improved since he started using this curriculum. I highly recommend it!

    Great teacher

    Posted by Audrey Howie on 13th Sep 2020

    My son is getting a better hold on advanced math concepts by learning along with Dr. Shormann's teaching and then doing the practice problems from the book. His method has helped us make good progress this year!

    Great Homeschool

    Posted by Jamie on 18th Aug 2019

    My son is using DIVE for Advanced Math and it has been a blessing. It both accountable and on track. I appreciate the instruction in the subject area, but also the instruction in organizing math time and taking notes.

    Great SAT Score Proves It!

    Posted by Rachel on 5th May 2018

    My son just scored an almost perfect score of 790 on the math portion of the SAT after completing DIVE Saxon Algebra II and DIVE Saxon Advanced Math. He did no other preparation besides completing the DIVE for Saxon courses in 9th and 10th grades. Now as a brick-and-mortar 11th grade student this year, he's taking AP Calculus and has straight A's. I'm very impressed with the quality of the DIVE instructional DVD's and plan to use them for all our children who are homeschooled for high school..
