For the past few years, there have been rumors swirling around about the future of the Saxon Math curriculum. We promised to keep you updated, and, finally, we have some big news!
I spoke with my good friend, Stephen Hake, today. Stephen is the co-author of Saxon Math and was informed by the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), that Saxon Math will remain in print! Check out what he has to say here.
We all know that Saxon Math is an excellent option, so why was it rumored to be in jeopardy? You see, HMH has been transitioning more towards digital programs and stepping back a bit from print options. This led to some rumors that Saxon Math might be discontinued.
But guess what? HMH just confirmed a proposal that ensures the current editions of Saxon Math will continue to be available for both schools and homeschooling! HMH will keep selling the printed versions of Saxon Math through June 30, 2025.
Now, I know you’re curious about what will happen after that date, right? Well, fear not, my friends! HMH has some additional plans to keep Saxon Math available indefinitely in both digital and print formats. We’re still waiting on the finer details, so stay tuned because more information will be coming your way.
So, there you have it, my fellow math enthusiasts. Saxon Math will continue to be printed by HMH.
Keep those math skills sharp, and remember, with Saxon Math by your side, you can conquer any problem that comes your way.
Until next time, this is Nicole the Math Lady, signing off!
I’m so happy to hear this! And I have no idea what we would do without Nicole!!! Thank you for what you do!
This is good news! The written text is such an effective tool for teaching. I have taught with Saxon since we got his free Algebra 1 texts to try, in the 80’s. This was in public school. I now teach at a home school resource center. I have had so many students that have changed to Saxon that have found success with enjoyment. One of the outcomes I have found, is that students are able a analyse and explain in detail, problems they may have gotten wrong. And now a complement for Nicole. With your background, you would be successful at many things, but you chose to support so effectivly, the Saxon approach to learning math—–Thank you! Don Jalowitz
Thank you for the update! 🙂
I stopped homeschooling my kids (5th and 7th grade) for the 2022-2023 school year. They attend a small, private Christian school now where Eureka Math is used (this is the first year the school is using it and before that, they had used Saxon). I cannot tell you how frustrating every night of math homework has been with Eureka Math. Saxon is pure gold for its simplicity, thoroughness, and spiral review. I pray it continues to be available to students everywhere!
Thank You so much for the info
Thank you so much for the update!
I’m confused….. it is stated that they will continue to sell printed versions until 2025, but then stated that there will be print options after 2025?
HMH has contracted to print Saxon until 6/2025 and is in negotiations to print them past that date.
That’s what I saw too. So maybe they and maybe they won’t.
This is wonderful news! Thank you Nicole!
How wonderful!! I was holding my breath because I currently don’t have the extra funds to purchase four years of curriculum. I exhale after reading. As a homeschooling family this was good news.
Thanks Nicole for updating us on this topic. You are awesome as my kids say 😊
Even if the book go out of print would you keep your site going doe those who have books at home?
I have 6 kids and multiple levels that all my kids will go through. I’ve LOVE the program to be available and I will just keep all my levels for all the kids to work through!
Absolutely! We will continue to support those textbooks. We’re not going anywhere.
GREAT! Without Nichole I’d hate math still.
Well…I’m happy you enjoy it that.
