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.

I used their downloaded sample sheets and I really like the structure, spiraling method and beautiful colors. Also, I called the company and they stated that they are not common core.

1st grade daughter...I like the colorful and basic worksheets.

Laura Y on Aug 20, 2018
We love horizons Math
Marie K on Aug 8, 2018
Decided to purchase Book 1 and Book 2 rather than the complete set from the teachers manual due to other's noting they didn't use the teacher's manual much for this age. This will be our first year with Horizons, but I like how colorful it is, and the spiral learning method will be a great fit for my child who gets easily bored and likes to have new concepts often.
A C on Aug 2, 2018
We've been using Horizon for 4 years now, and it's never disappointed. My kids are excelling at math, and the simple, fun, and colorful worksheets help them take ownership of their work.

Jason H on Mar 6, 2018
Love the use of the number line for visual understanding of the placement of numbers, greater, less than and number sense in general. Not all math curricula do this.
Revae L on Feb 13, 2018
Was a winner for my four children, despite very different learning styles.
Joanna T on Dec 27, 2017
My kindergartner is almost done her Horizons K books and we love Horizons Math!
Julie T on Dec 4, 2017
My daughter does well with the approach of reviewing as you learn new skills. We definitely feel free to skip areas that we have mastered, as assignments can feel like busy work at times. Overall a good curriculum that we combine with another.

Kimberly W on Nov 9, 2017
We've had great success with Horizons Math K!
Julie C on Nov 7, 2017
Have used Horizons before and very happy with this curriculum, very colorful and uses a circular learning pattern rather than mastery of only one concept at a time

We currently use Horizons 1 for my first grader and we like it. So I'm ordering it again for my next child.

I have been using Horizon Math workbooks for my younger children for many years. They are thorough, colorful and easy to use. I find that by the time my children have gone through the first two grades, they are ready to transition to Teaching Textbooks.
Kellyanne E on Nov 5, 2016
I like my son's math 3 horizons workbook and needed something for my grade 1 daughter so I decided to try it for her too.

Jonnalyn C on Jul 17, 2020
Why are there 2 workbooks for math 1?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: To keep the size of the workbook reasonable it seems they split the workbook sheets for the year in half & provide the first half of the year’s worksheets in Bk 1 & the 2nd half in Bk 2. This also allows me to space out my expenditures for the school year a bit too.
I am trying to decide whether I should start with workbook 1 or 2 for my daughter, who has completed Primary (Singapore) Math 1A. I'm just not sure if I'll be skipping anything important if we start with Horizons Math 1 Workbook 2? Thank you for any insight!
A shopper on Nov 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have a placement test for Horizons on our website that should help. You can find it at the link below (scroll down a bit). In general, the two courses should be fairly well matched although Singapore has a greater emphasis on problem solving skills. Your daughter will probably be OK starting with Workbook 2.

Tried and True
I used this with my now high schooler and middle schooler who are in upper level math classes, and we are happy to go through it with our first grader again expecting the same results. It is straight forward, challenging, and the spiral method of the curriculum keeps the student from losing gains.

We love this math program!
We have been using Horizons math for 1 month now and we love it. My daughter was using Math U See alpha and she grasped concepts quickly but Mastering each concept was harder and required a repetitiveness that bored her. Horizons moved quickly, constantly introducing new while consistently reviewing past concepts. She loves it and is learning better with this method.

Excellent program
I haven't found any other program to be as good, and believe me I've looked at several, and have worked through a couple of the other top programs out there. Nothing is as good as Horizons to me and my kids. I have a girl and a boy who process differently, but they both do well.

So far I love using Horizons Math for my son He likes that there are a variety of exercises each day and the colorful pages keep him interested I like the idea of being able to switch to other Alpha Omega systems and be on the same scope and sequence later if he needs a different method My only criticism so far would be that the K workbook has the student learn to write a four with the triangle shape and the 1st grade book jumps in with a square-shaped four

Horizons is one of the best math programs for K-6 That's what Cathy Duffy saidIt is very easy to use for the teacher and student it's colorful the student likes it Not too many problems (only 2 pages/lesson) However the TM is not much help It says to teach the clock but doesn't explain or give you an idea how Also Horizons is not strong in conceptual math That's why I recommend to supplement MEP math which is free or Singapore We do 2 pages Horizons and one page Singapore I only buy the workbooks for all including HorizonsFor manipulatives which I think are essential especially for K-3 I use -base ten blocks for place value (see if you can find hundreds tens and ones in different colors if not you can make them yourself with cardboard )-abacus (must have for pre algebra like 4 + what makes 10)-unifix cubes-clock -pattern blocks
