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.

Our current common core aligned curriculum has been frustrating, so we are switching to a traditional approach.

I've been using Singapore Math for a couple of years for K-1st I used Dimensions and for 2nd I used Primary 2022. My kids need a lot more repetition and converting everything to 10 doesn't seem to be in their (and I'll be honest, my) wheelhouse at the moment. I think that a more traditional approach to math will be best suited for us for a while.

My daughter is finishing Horizons 2 so we are moving on up to 3. I've been very impressed with this curriculum. Our evaluator said it looks to be running a year or so ahead of our state's standards for the grade level. I like how colorful it is and how it comes back around to previously learned skills while introducing new skills every few lessons.
Alasha M on Jan 15, 2021
We love horizons math, particularly the spiral learning and the straightforward lessons. My daughter wanted to try something different this year, so we switched to Teaching Textbooks for a change of pace. But...she is now begging to come back to Horizons. She likes the challenge and enjoys the predictable format.

This will be our third year of homeschooling and we're still hoping to find an "old" Math curriculum that works for my oldest. MCP was good, but DD got bored very quickly hoping this spiral method of teaching works better with her.

My daughter likes to work through work books and to practice what she's learned. If she shows she's learning the steps well and is getting bored with what she is doing we move on. This curriculum gives her the flexibility.

I called rainbow resource center with questions about an order i was about to place for a math curriculum and during the conversation the knowledgable counselor i was speaking to realized that the program i was about to purchase wasn't the best fit for my needs and recommended Horizons. After researching Horizons, I agreed that Horizons would better fit my needs.

I have researched several math curriculum and this one seems to be the best option for my sons' style of learning. I had purchased the #4 set, but its a bit too advanced for him so we're going to start with Math 3 instead.

I have used these books with my previous children. I love the spiral approach and they are a little more advanced then some curriculum but really build a solid foundation in math.

Does this package have the answers for the books 1&2?
Sonia W on Mar 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the answers for the two workbooks are found in the Teacher Guide included with this Boxed Set.
Does the Horizons curriculum include tests or other assessments at the end of units?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a test after every 10 lessons. We've been using Horizons Math since first grade (my daughter is in 4th grade now), and that is the flow of the curriculum. I hope this answers your question. Thank you!
Does the Horizon Math 3 includes the extra
worksheet package?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The worksheets are included in the Complete Math 3 set as reproducibles in the Teacher's Manual but not as a separately printed packet of worksheets.
How often is God/the Bible/religious content mentioned in this? I have heard wonderful things about Horizons but would like to keep religion out of our math lessons. Thanks.

Great math curriculum, very colorful and reviews previous lessons work so they don’t forget. Son loves math due to Horizons. We started in book 1 for K and have no plans of switching.

Colorful & fun, I like 3rd best so far
My daughter likes these workbooks because they are colorful... We have done them, in part, since Kindergarten. There is a bit too much to do in K-2nd books, for my liking. So we just skip around and hit all of the concepts, without overkill. We prefer more hands on math at this age.

I don't use the TM until 3rd grade, when I'm really just using it for an easier, quicker grading on my part.

So far, in the 3rd grade book, the work given seems like an appropriate amount (takes her 20 minutes, or so). It becomes more appropriate to spend regular math workbook time at this age as their abstract thinking builds.

Works for us!

Amazing, all-inclusive program.
I love Horizons for it's thorough treatment of all aspects of math, and it is on the advanced side, but with plenty of repetition and builds to next skills. I find it's easy to cross off some problems if they don't need as many, and if your child needs more, there are extra lessons to print off. I don't always do the extra lessons, and my children have done well. My boy and girl both excel with it.

We've just started so we aren't very far but it seems very repetitious of second grade so far. I looked ahead and it looks like you have to get quite far into the book to find a new concept. I understand spiral learning but new concepts should be thrown in more quickly. It's too slow for my daughter so we will be skipping around. My own opinion. Overall, I love Horizons and so does she!

We have used Horizon's for many years and have been happy with it. The curriculum is colorful and thorough. My only criticism is that there doesn't seem to be enough practice on a new concept before moving on. I find myself reteaching the concept when it spirals back.

We started homeschooling our oldest child beginning in 3rd grade She had been in a Montessori school from preschool through 2nd grade and was advanced in math We started with Level 3 because everyone said Horizons was so advanced Overall the books are fantastic They offer a variety of problems with each lesson The lessons regularly provide review of past material It is bright and pleasant to look at (no color is very dull for an 8 year old) Each lesson also provides a reasonable number of problems especially for a student who gets bored easily/tired of doing the same type of problem repeatedly With that said my only 'negative' comment is if you have a very advanced math learner By the end of the 1st book my child was getting bored with doing the problems over concepts she had 'mastered' Therefore by the 2nd book if it was a review concept I would select a few problems from that particular section of the lesson (for example if there were 8 subtraction problems I would have her do 3 or 4) If a concept was being reviewed more frequently through a series of lessons sometimes I would allow her to completely skip sections of review problems

I know that some homeschoolers prefer mastery-based math programs over spiral learning math However we like the quick hits on new topics with lots of short review in subsequent lessons My math-despising daughter actually likes Horizons because she does a variety of problem types in each lesson instead of one problem type over and over When first starting this program you should know that is is very difficult to start in the middle of any given course because of the spiral approach We switched to Horizons from another program mid-year We had covered a number of the concepts already but I chose to start at the beginning of the course because I couldn't figure out where else to begin The concepts we needed to cover were woven in a few lessons at a time throughout the entire course so I couldn't just start in the middle and go because we would have missed all the groundwork laid in the earlier lessons It is a lot of review -- but I figure the review can't hurt!

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
