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.

We have been using Horizons Math for several years and are really happy with it.
Jennifer M on Mar 19, 2020
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
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 love Horizons Math!
Heather H on Jul 31, 2018
I've used Horizons Math since my oldest child was in Kindergarten and now my 2nd oldest child is entering fifth grade. It uses a spiral method of review and learning and is full of color to make it more fun to look at while working. My children have entered public school for short periods throughout our years homeschooling and they were always ahead of their peers in math. A relief to know, for sure!
Heather G on Jul 23, 2018
Using this for my second darling child. My oldest has completing the 6th grade books and is starting pre-algebra next year!

Switching math curriculum and we have used Horizons with success in the past.

I like the Horizons series how it continually repeats concepts.
Robin E on Feb 21, 2017
Solid Program! Used with several of my kids with various learning styles.
User on Nov 22, 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 have used Horizons since K, love the spiral method.
Carla H on Apr 11, 2016
We were looking for a good math program with lots of review through the year. Horizons is both.
Michelle D on Mar 30, 2016
Been doing Horizons with my child since 2nd grade
Jodene B on Mar 9, 2016
Straight-forward math program. Nice graphics. Plenty of review. My daughter loves the pictures and colors. A nice alternative to Saxon which was so dry and boring to her due to lack of color!
JANET J on Jan 10, 2016
Needed for schooling.
Deannah M on Jan 4, 2016
We have been using Horizons for two years, and our family loves Horizons Math! The kids have thrived on this curriculum, both our advanced child and our normal ability child. Highly recommend! Yes, sometimes the repetition can be a tad overdone, but it only serves to solidify the concepts deeply into their heads, making math EASY. When there is an overwhelming amount of similar problems, I sometimes only require my children to do the first row, leaving extra problems to work if needed.

Good Workbook
I really like Horizons Math workbooks. This is what I am using for my last two little ones and it is what I used for my first two, until they reached high levels of math. To be totally honest, none of my boys has ever liked math, but I don't think that is Horizons fault. We have tried so many different math curriculum over the years that I can't even keep track, but always end up back with Horizons. I think mainly because if they don't care for math anyway, I might as well end up with something that is relatively easy for me to prepare for and help them understand. We all like how colorful these workbooks are and how we know each day how much work we are going to be asked to complete.

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
