Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called "incremental development and continual review." Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year. Topics are never dropped but are increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar. Each grade level has its own consumable meeting book, which is used during The Meeting at the beginning of each day. This first edition meeting book is for Grade 3.

This book is intended to be used as part of a three-part set. I am currently using Saxon Math with 4 children as part of their enrichment and I am very satisfied with the method of instruction and the materials included in the program, including this booklet. Just be sure to check on the requirements for each level to avoid disappointment. The program, used as it is intended, is great.
This will be my second time using Saxon 3- this time we started our youngest with Saxon1 in kinder and have worked our way up to S3 for 2nd grade. She enjoys meeting book time and it is a great review and "spiral" of basic calendar, skip counting, time, money and graph making/reading. Also, they get practice with fact families, by writing math facts for the "number of the day" (date). Useful tool in the math curriculum. Only buy this if you already have the Teacher's manual and just need the consumable parts of the curriculum. You will also need the student worksheets and flashcards, which are consumable as well.
This book is Definitely not needed for the curriculum! This book is very disappointing, and not worth the money I paid!!!!!!
