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.

Horizons is a great math program. It is interesting and colorful. It includes plenty of drill and some mental math. It is affordable and great for fast learners. However, because I don't like rushing my children along, there is a very simple fix to make Horizons work without stressing the child out. I just use it one half grade level lower. For example my 2nd grader is using grade 2-book 1 the second half of the year. In 3rd grade she will use 2-book 2 and 3-book 1. In this way the program is more developmentally appropriate while being on par for standardized testing, and still moving quickly enough to be interesting and challenging.

After starting to home school this last January, the "approved" curriculum list was overwhelming. I did my best and HATED the books they "recommended." So, I read some reviews and settled on this book in both the 2nd grade and 6th grade version. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Well worth the money, and the instructions for the kids are easy to understand, and they teach with color pictures. If you have a student that learns well by reading a concept, then given examples to solve the problem before being set free to solve on their own, this series is very highly recommended.
