We just switched to Horizons Mathematics last month after using another math program My son was becoming very frustrated with the other program and I knew that I had to do something I absolutely love Horizons mathematics and so does my son He no longer dreads Math time and is excited each day to do his work He has never been a big workbook kind of kid but really likes the colorful student workbooks and likes to do them The teacher's guide is wonderful and I have no prep time It is very easy to follow and takes you step by step through each section of his work each day telling you exactly what to say to help the student learn each concept The price is very reasonable and I love that Rainbow put together the maniputlative kit to order to supplement this program I was able to make a math tote and each day when it is time for math we grab our books get out the tote of manipulatives and we are ready to go My 4 year old daughter loves to join us for manipulative time and she is learning so much from hearing the explanations to her brother Thanks Rainbow for carrying this product and for being such a wonderful resource for Homeschooling Families

I loved the Horizons Math program and we are going to try doing a few of the other subjects offered next year The program was easy to use and understand The way that they reinforce concepts throughout the program was awesome and it gave my son confidence to do most of it on his own It does take a lot of time at first but once they get the idea they truly flourish with this program It also is very affordable and you can get by without the teachers guide ÔŅĹ I never picked mine up

I have found Horizons math to be thorough and enjoyable Lessons are colorful and include several different exercises for example a single lesson may cover time money addition multiplication and word problems This keeps each function fresh in the student's mind The only problem I've found is that each set is about a year ahead of my child's level so in 4th grade she's using level 3 etc Also additional practice in multiplication has been necessary Overall it's the best program I've found thus far

I cannot tell you how happy I have been with our Horizons math! I have a daughter starting 2nd grade in the fall who will be starting Book two of Horizons 1st grade math My third grader will start the second book on 2nd grade Horizon math Even so both are ahead of their respective grades in math in the local public schools I spend very little time preparing for our lessons 1st grade was the longest period to teach as we used a lot of manipulatives but I felt it was time well spent and they even give you a chart to show which manipulatives will be needed for each lesson I used to copy all the worksheets which was time consuming but now bless them they offer the worksheets in a loose leaf packet They both have very different learning styles ie my 3rd grader is a very quick self-guided learner while my 2nd grader has a low threshold on concentration Each year there are 160 lessons with a test every ten lessons (They expect the student to do a regular lesson on top of the test but we don't) I also found that sometimes when there are twenty or more problems to do of double digit addition for example that I highlight half for them to complete If they miss any they have to do one extra problem for each one missed This has helped especially my daughter not to feel overwhelmed with a whole page of problems to do and has been very good motivation for my son Also I don't stress over trying to finish one lesson every day Sometimes we supplement with lessons such as consumer math lessons or extra work on telling time since sometimes (especially for daughter) the spiral method moves on before she has mastered a new subject We also don't do all the worksheets but found the kids both love the timed math drills I am very happy with this program Highly recommended!

I have to say that I was very pleased with this math program This was my first year of homeschooling and I was at a loss We just happened to stumble across Horizons Math K and instantly was hooked My son loved the colorful pages and I was impressed with the items that they were learning I felt that he was learning ahead of where he should have been but at the same time he was not struggling at all We did not use the teacher book but we did add some games and other math activities to the lessonThe other great thing about this program is that it is cost effective yet not lacking in the learning at all

Horizons Math has been a great fit for my children who are advanced in math! I really liked that there is a placement test available which can be downloaded from the publisher's website or purchased from Rainbow [Ed Note: Placement tests are also downloadable from the Rainbow website: http://wwwrainbowresourcecom/searchspringphp?q=math+placement+tests] I found Horizons to be advanced in content level introducing concepts more quickly than some other mainstream curriculum While this may be a negative for some children for children who do well in math it's a big plus as it provides more challenge I like the balance of drill/memory work and use of manipulatives for teaching and practicing concepts The worksheets are colorful and provide a lot of practice in several different concepts which helps keep math interesting From a teacher's perspective I felt that the teacher book was thorough You will have to teach as instruction is not included on the student page but the workbook pages (shrunken) and test keys are included in the teacher's manual You can photocopy included review pages if your student needs extra work on a particular concept I liked the option to purchase the box set & save a little money Saving money is always a plus

My child who is good at math did well with this program though his fact recall was still weak The colorful workbook pages are laid out very nice and I liked the spiral review but there were often too many problems (I'd cross out about 1/3) It was not the program for my child with learning disabilities and after I switched him to RightStart I switched everyone I still use this program as a supplement for my daughter if she gets ahead in the other programit requires very little of me which is nice
June 23, 2008
I love Horizons Math! We are using level K for my kindergartner and my 1st grader is using level 1 I love the review and my older daughter really does well with it It is broken down into small sections which makes her feel more successful and not overwhelmed by large numbers of problems My younger daughter with a smaller attention span also does well with the small sections as it allows her to not linger on any one topic for too long We plan to continue on with Horizons next year as well I believe it is an excellent value for the quality of instruction received

My kids LOVE Horizons Math! I started my 1st and kindergartner on this program and we're about 1/3 of the way through the first books We got both the K and 1st grade levels and although they are somewhat challenging for them they keep their interest The pages are colorful and interesting and my kids now enjoy doing math something my daughter was good at but didn't enjoy doing before Now they both open their math books and get started without my help At this level the kids can't work completely independently however I first began by using the teacher's guide as a step-by-step manual to teaching math That's one option but as we've progressed I use the teacher's manual as more of a reference than a script It is worth buying though Some of the lessons between grades K and 1 overlap thematically although the difficulty level varies This makes it easy to to multi-level teaching (ie place value) and vary only the problem difficulty not the topic I highly recommend Horizons math I also recommend taking their placement test first to ensure that you're placing your child in the correct grade level

We are using this curriculum with our third son We like it for a child who tends to "get it" in math with little frustration There is abundant review and variety in the daily worksheets - your child will know his facts! It's an attractive format as well We spice up the constant flashcard review with games like hopscotch (hop on the right answer) If you have a child who struggles to understand what it means to subtract or is fearful of new concepts you may want to look elsewhere or stop periodically to supplement with a more hands-on approach We supplement with Making Math Meaningful which gives loads of story problem practice and teaches concepts hands-on We do this even though our son loves math because we want him to understand the whys behind what he's doing As someone with a math background I found little to complain about in Horizon's methodology except asking a child to cut an object into equal parts that is not symmetrical which would not give congruent parts Horizons gives a solid foundation in math for your easier-to-teach students Be sure to get the teacher's guide - the "boxed set" is a good value

This was an excellent series but it does get boring and redundant. The book focuses on lots of topics but doesn't move too quickly away from addition and subtraction. My son actually got bored will all the addition. It started on lesson one and went all the way to the end.

Do I also need to order the loose leaf worksheets?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The loose leaf worksheets are printed copies of masters that are provided in the Teacher's Manual. It is not necessary to purchase the worksheets. Some people choose to not use them at all while others just copy them from the TM. However, we do carry the print copies for those who do not wish to print their own but who want to use them.
