We are new to Saxon. What class should my student be in?
Saxon provides a placement test that is great for helping answer this question. Visit the appropriate link below. If there is any question, feel free to e-mail us!

What class should my student take next?
All students at AYM will take Saxon until they complete Math 76. After Math 76, students may choose between Saxon 87 and Math U See Pre-algebra.
Students chosing Saxon will follow 87 with Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. We offer Algebra 1/2, but this is for students who need some extra skill practice between 87 and Algebra 1.
Stuents chosing Math U See will take Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and then Precalculus.
Does my student need a Geometry Class?
Students taking Saxon DO NOT need a Geometry class. Gemoetry is woven into the Algebra curriculum, and students completing both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 will have also completed a full Geometry course.
Students taking Math U See will need to take the Gemoetry course.
Why don’t you offer Saxon courses beyond Algebra 2
Pre-Calculus and above are actually college level courses, and we have found that many of our home school students take advantage of the option of dual-enrollment at one of our local colleges or univiersities, so there just has not been enough of a demand for us to offer thsese courses. However, we are always willing to look at offering a course if there is enough interest. (4 or more students)
Where do classes meet?
Currently all classes are availble online. One of our teachers is also offering in person classes at her home in Denton, TX. In the past, we have met at Signing Oaks Church of Christ and we hope to return there once the pandemic is under control.
Do you offer tutoring?
All teachers offer math lab hours outside of class and many of them (including Mrs. Wilemon and Mrs. Inselmann) offer private tutoring at an additional fee.
We also maintain a list of tutors we can refer students to if needed. E-mail admin at [email protected] for the list.
How can we get a new class added?
If there is enough interest, we can look at adding additional classes. Typically we need a group of at least 4 students to offer a class. Otherwise, our teachers are happy to work one on one at our private tutoring rates.
