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.

its for a co-op curriculum
ALIYA M on Jul 17, 2020
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. I will be using Right Start along with this on our home days.

Elizabeth F on Aug 28, 2019
I've used Horizons for K and 1 with my daughter, and it gives just enough structured learning, that we like using it. It is also colorful and interesting which helps keep her attention. I"ll probably switch to Teaching Textbooks after this, but wanted 1 more year of working on her writing numbers skills.
User on Aug 22, 2019
B'c my kids love it.

We are completing Horizons Math level 1 and it is very colorful and engaging for your young student. It is repetitive so they are able to keep the concepts fresh in their mind.

Love that these pages rip out and they are colourful but straight forward.
Darlene U on Oct 4, 2018
We have loved Horizons math for years. Our twins went from level one through level six. It was the first curriculum for elementary math we thought of for a little one joining us this year. It's easily portable, the pages are interesting and inviting, the explanations are straightforward, and it cycles back through each concept so nothing is forgotten.
Krista H on Aug 28, 2018
This curriculum worked with my older kids, so I am using it again with the youngest.
Tammy M on Aug 23, 2018
The spiral approach to math is the only way my girls learn math and so few programs use this method, we love Horizons math!
User on Aug 3, 2018
We have loved all of the previous levels.
Amanda H on Aug 3, 2018
We are switching from Saxon for grade 2. My son does better with a more colorful workbook!
Sarah H on Jul 31, 2018
i had the rest of this specific curriculum and this was the cheapest place to get this book
Crystal S on Jul 23, 2018
I was given the workbook 1 to check out for our first year of homeschooling from a fellow homeschooler. My daughter picked it up so easily. She was in kindergarten but did the 1st grade set. The spiral learning method has worked out great for us and we will continue with this curriculum. It is very colorful and easy to understand.
Kelley S on Jul 23, 2018
We loved Horizons Math 1! Ready for Math 2!
Steven S on Jul 13, 2018
Horizons Math is easy to teach, fun for my kids to look at, and constantly reinforces what they're learning by giving them opportunities to practice problems again. I've used it for years, with many of my children, and believe it's one of the best out there!

Very happy with previous items in this series!
Heather D on Apr 9, 2018
Horizons Math is a solid program. There is some repetition-which is good for kids who need it. If your child doesn't, it may be boring. My students love the colorful pages, and I appreciate the tear out sheets.

Do you need the teacher guide? We used the grade 1 and we never even cracked open the book
A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We didn't use the teacher's guide. We really used this book as more of a math practice workbook (rather than a curriculum with lessons taught by mom). I would just sit down with my son and go over the page for the day to make sure he understood it all and then let him do it. I would pull out manipulatives as I saw fit or explain concepts as needed, but I didn't use the teacher's guide or teach any math lessons. Plus, the math at this level is still simple enough that you can figure it in your head and don't need an answer key.

Horizons math - a thorough and methodical approach to basic math skills.
I used Horizons Math with my children and chose again for my grandchildren. The two page spread in the early years is perfect. The introduction of new skills is methodical and gentle with plenty of review throughout the year. A very solid program!

Great Math Book for Second Graders
We like the Second Grade Math book. I feel like it was an easy transition for my son coming from the First Grade Math Book. He rarely has any questions about his work but when he does after I show him the first time, he usually grasps the concept.

After struggling through our first 6 months of homeschooling with frustrating online math (Common Core with no explanations!) and Saxon Math (not quite fast-paced enough), we finally turned to Horizons. Not only are we making progress, there have been many days when DD has said "I'm going to go ahead and do an extra lesson." What?! We really love the look and the format. The Teacher's Guide is actually helpful and the manipulatives are actually helpful and can be used for more than just one year. My only problem with it is that it stops at around 6th or 7th grade with Algebra. Fingers crossed that they will continue this series!

AOP math
My son loves Horizons colorful prints. I like that they don't bore the kids with repetition. It teaches, you have problems and move on. It doesn't completely move on though. The problems keep popping in here and there.

Horizons Math 2 Book 1
I love Horizons for its colorful pages, and thorough treatment of all aspects. My kids are well above grade level in math because of our Horizons programs! I'm thankful for it.

Horizons Math helps my young ones to understand basic math, even though their foundations were poorly set in the past. Each concept is carefully taught, reviewed often, and this is done in a way that is interesting and fun. The books are colorful, and the work does not advance too fast for little ones, nor does it drag. These work for child after child, and I have used them for 6 children so far with no issues. I have not needed to find a different method for any of them!

My kids love Horizons!
Not only do my kids love it, but I love Horizons Math as well! We've been using it for several years now. It's colorful and keeps the kids interested. There's not so much work that they get bored but just enough repetition to make sure they learn each new process. This is typically advanced over public school math, so if your student is coming from public school you may want to test him to see his level before purchasing.

I do not like Horizons.
I have this curriculum away as I did not feel it was a complete study program that prepared students for more advanced math.

My son is doing great with Horizon's math this year. I appreciate the built in review and the nice easy pace that helps to solidify the material for him.

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
