Title: Intervention Report: Saxon Math
Description: Saxon Math is a textbook series covering grades K-12 based on incremental development and continual review of mathematical concepts to give students time to learn and practice concepts throughout the year. The series is aligned with standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and various states, and can be adapted for special education students in inclusion classrooms, pullout programs, or self-contained resource classrooms. Although content differs by course, the incremental, distributed approach of Saxon Math is the same, with mathematical concepts presented in a series of short "lessons" intended to gradually build understanding and previously-taught concepts practiced and assessed throughout the course. Developed in the early 1980s, Saxon Math included four middle school math textbooks used in the studies included in this intervention report. The series has been redesigned and now offers three textbooks for middle school grades. This report includes studies that investigate the potential impact of Saxon Math texts on math achievement of middle school students but does not include these revised texts.
