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

We started homeschooling our oldest child beginning in 3rd grade She had been in a Montessori school from preschool through 2nd grade and was advanced in math We started with Level 3 because everyone said Horizons was so advanced Overall the books are fantastic They offer a variety of problems with each lesson The lessons regularly provide review of past material It is bright and pleasant to look at (no color is very dull for an 8 year old) Each lesson also provides a reasonable number of problems especially for a student who gets bored easily/tired of doing the same type of problem repeatedly With that said my only 'negative' comment is if you have a very advanced math learner By the end of the 1st book my child was getting bored with doing the problems over concepts she had 'mastered' Therefore by the 2nd book if it was a review concept I would select a few problems from that particular section of the lesson (for example if there were 8 subtraction problems I would have her do 3 or 4) If a concept was being reviewed more frequently through a series of lessons sometimes I would allow her to completely skip sections of review problems

I know that some homeschoolers prefer mastery-based math programs over spiral learning math However we like the quick hits on new topics with lots of short review in subsequent lessons My math-despising daughter actually likes Horizons because she does a variety of problem types in each lesson instead of one problem type over and over When first starting this program you should know that is is very difficult to start in the middle of any given course because of the spiral approach We switched to Horizons from another program mid-year We had covered a number of the concepts already but I chose to start at the beginning of the course because I couldn't figure out where else to begin The concepts we needed to cover were woven in a few lessons at a time throughout the entire course so I couldn't just start in the middle and go because we would have missed all the groundwork laid in the earlier lessons It is a lot of review -- but I figure the review can't hurt!

Horizones Math 3 Boxed SetI purchased this from your book at the convention this past JuneI absolutely love it It is so easy for my son to do on his own The spiral type really works for him Very appealing to the eye I don't have to stress over how to teach it to him The teacher's book that come's with it is so easy for me to use I highly recommend this math to anyone

Amazing, all-inclusive program.
I love Horizons for it's thorough treatment of all aspects of math, and it is on the advanced side, but with plenty of repetition and builds to next skills. I find it's easy to cross off some problems if they don't need as many, and if your child needs more, there are extra lessons to print off. I don't always do the extra lessons, and my children have done well. My boy and girl both excel with it.

We have used Horizon's for many years and have been happy with it. The curriculum is colorful and thorough. My only criticism is that there doesn't seem to be enough practice on a new concept before moving on. I find myself reteaching the concept when it spirals back.

Colorful & fun, I like 3rd best so far
My daughter likes these workbooks because they are colorful... We have done them, in part, since Kindergarten. There is a bit too much to do in K-2nd books, for my liking. So we just skip around and hit all of the concepts, without overkill. We prefer more hands on math at this age.

I don't use the TM until 3rd grade, when I'm really just using it for an easier, quicker grading on my part.

So far, in the 3rd grade book, the work given seems like an appropriate amount (takes her 20 minutes, or so). It becomes more appropriate to spend regular math workbook time at this age as their abstract thinking builds.

Works for us!

We've just started so we aren't very far but it seems very repetitious of second grade so far. I looked ahead and it looks like you have to get quite far into the book to find a new concept. I understand spiral learning but new concepts should be thrown in more quickly. It's too slow for my daughter so we will be skipping around. My own opinion. Overall, I love Horizons and so does she!

I have researched several math curriculum and this one seems to be the best option for my sons' style of learning. I had purchased the #4 set, but its a bit too advanced for him so we're going to start with Math 3 instead.

I have used these books with my previous children. I love the spiral approach and they are a little more advanced then some curriculum but really build a solid foundation in math.

BEST ANSWER: I have used Horizons 1, 2, 3, and 4 and I do not recall ever seeing God, the Bible, or religious content mentioned. I really, really like the Horizons math curriculum! They do a looping type of thing where they continuously review previous work so the student doesn't lose skills they previously gained, while simultaneously moving the students forward through math concepts pretty quickly. I like the way they introduce concepts. For instance, through second and early third grade, the students do a lot of skip counting, so by the time they get to multiplication, it's second nature! For what it's worth, I really like Horizons' other curriculum as well (spelling, phonics and reading, and penmanship), but those do have some religious content (i.e., Jesus as a spelling word, a verse to write in penmanship, etc.) and may not work if you're trying to avoid it.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a test after every 10 lessons. We've been using Horizons Math since first grade (my daughter is in 4th grade now), and that is the flow of the curriculum. I hope this answers your question. Thank you!
