Category Description for Horizons Math:

Admittedly, no math program will work for everyone - but I find few flaws in this motivating and well-laid out program. Although it may be more advanced for grade level than the "average" program, I don't consider that a negative. Because of the developmental approach to learning in this program, even a non-math type can easily succeed, while the "math whiz" will be challenged by the advanced topics introduced early. Concepts are introduced incrementally, then practiced, developed, and continually reviewed as other concepts are introduced. Horizons lays a solid foundation for numerical literacy with an early emphasis on hands-on, concept learning via manipulatives and one-on-one lessons. The program relies on few separately purchased manipulatives by utilizing common household items and including charts and number lines found in the teacher's handbooks. A useful table in the handbook shows the integration of manipulatives in lessons so you can tell at a glance just what you'll need. Analytical reasoning and mental acumen are stressed throughout the series, and memorization and drill are not neglected. The teacher handbook is the heart of the program, containing daily lesson plans that are easy to implement. Reduced student pages are a tremendous aid in planning and supply answers to the worktext exercises. Besides plans, the handbook contains an overview, materials list, activities, and supplemental worksheets (approx. one for each 4 lessons). Designed for homeschoolers, the activities, language, and lessons require no alteration. There are 160 lessons per level, each requiring approximately 20-30 minutes per day. Tests are given after every 10 lessons to assess retention of cumulative skills. While a good part of each lesson is oral (especially at the K level), the enticing, colorful student worksheets lay foundations for lessons and review concepts previously taught. There are two workbooks per grade level. Please note that the actual lesson is to be taught by you - there are only brief instructions on each page of the workbooks, which are not intended to be self- instructional. Boxed set contains the teacher book and 2 student workbooks. Additional Student Worksheet Packets contain one photocopy of each reproducible master in the teacher book.

Because the Co-op school picked it. My preferred Math curriculum is Right Start especially for the younger grade. Horizons does not give a solid base for basic building blocks. However my daughter has adjusted ok. They lack margins and space for kids to actually do the work. I think they could omit problems. No need to do 20 of the same application. 10 would be good, especially review materials. We do not do all of them.

Solid math program. Good rigor, color, variety.
Jennifer M on Sep 17, 2019
We are using this in our tutorial - EXCELLENT curriculum choice!! Introduces advanced concepts early in a grade and age appropriate manner and spirals to continually reinforce material so that concepts learned aren't forgotten over time. GREAT foundational math curriculum!
Kymberly K on Jul 29, 2019
I have been using Horozons math for 5 years...Love it! It prepared my daughter wonderfully, and in public school she was way ahead.
Erin M on Jul 29, 2019
My son has used Horizons since level one. It is self explanatory and the concepts stick in his head from level to level. I recommend this curriculum to anyone who asks!
Margaret F on Feb 11, 2019
Horizons Math is perfect for us, especially my more independent children. The lessons seem challenging enough for the grade level, not too much fluff and some Christian "stuff" thrown in there too.

We like Horizons Math program. Easy to use. My 7th grader does it on his own. He likes using a paper workbook.
Jennifer R on Sep 1, 2016
We have used same curriculum for math since Kinder and we love it
Ameye C on Aug 25, 2016
This math curriculum has served our family well for over 8 years now. The new concepts are introduced easily, old concepts are reviewed regularly, and the color graphics and real-life applications make it more appealing to students. The lessons make it easy to break up the weeks and my boys have been able to be self-directing (for the most part) by the 5th grade. Additionally, I find this curriculum to be comparable to more expensive Christian curriculum that I have seen.
Brianne S on Aug 4, 2016
We love Horizons Math for elementary grades!"
Jodi W on Jun 4, 2016
I have used this successfully with several students and this is where we are in the sequence with my youngest.
LaNette L on Apr 26, 2016
We love the pages which review the concepts all year. The worksheets are colorful and not overlong. There are also Bible verses for each lesson.

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
