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.

This is the best math curriculum! Works well for both my sons!
Margaret F on Aug 28, 2020
We love the Horizons math program! The workbooks are colorful, and there are lots of practice problems if we need them. The spiral approach allows us to revisit concepts often and keeps them fresh in our brains.

Our family enjoys Horizons math because it is easy to understand. It is a spiral method, so it repeats concepts throughout the year. We've found this to be a great method because the lessons are not forgotten and the kids rarely feel as though they need to relearn something.

Have used this math curriculum for years and my kids enjoy it.
User on Jan 2, 2018
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.
Rebecca C on Feb 21, 2017
I like how Horizons presents their math. Very colorful with a good amount of review.
Dorothy W on Jan 19, 2017
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
My upcoming fourth grader thought his brother's new Horizons math looked nice with the colors.

Grades 1-3 were very strong. Excellent conceptual skills attained. Teacher's manual a must for support. Expectation for level 4 is high, hoping not to disappoint.

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
