I wonder what they mean by "native English" in that passage. Thanks for posting.

I was a Saxon math kid. Loved it.

I'd guess from the context that "native English" means that the word did not originate with the Britanns (sp?) the original people of the British Isles.

Yes, I guess they mean Gaelic. It is just an odd turn of phrase, since Modern English contains virtually no traces of Gaelic.

In 8th grade, we did Algebra 1/2 with what was - I believe - the first ever edition of Saxon math. Then we used Saxon all the way through graduation (Alg 1, Alg II, Alg III/Trig, and Calculus).
