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.

Great curriculum and buying the "box set" is the cheapest way to go!

I find Horizons math to be more fun than many choices, but thorough in content like the best.

We've been using Horizons math for years and love it!

I needed a good spiraling curriculum for my math challenged learner
Cherie T on Dec 28, 2018
We have used Horizons Math for years, and it is a great curriculum. Challenging, lots of review, and Christian worldview.
Cindy G on Aug 15, 2018
We have been happy with Horizons Math for my oldest daughter so we are trying it again this year!

I liked Box set 5 and we're ready to move on to the next level
Alisa L on Jul 23, 2018
Horizons seems to be the best option for our visual child. We’ve tried Teaching Textbooks, Abeka, and Singapore and found Horizons to be the best of these for our middle child who is a visual learner and finds this curriculum to be more helpful to her than something like Saxon.
Alisa R on Jul 4, 2018
Thorough and easy to teach. Colorful pages that kids like. Fun math games.
Kristen K on Aug 15, 2017
My son has been using a traditional Math program at his private school; however, we have decided to homeschool this next year. I read some wonderful reviews about Horizons Math and decided to give it a try with him as he finishes up his last year of Elementary math before Algebra!
Julie D on Jul 2, 2017
Co-op uses it.
Lindsey L on May 25, 2017
I appreciate the thorough spiral approach in the earlier Horizons books.
Stephanie S on Mar 15, 2017
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
Horizon Math seems to explain and present their lessons in an understandable, clear, usable, and visually pleasing way. I really like the way that they organize new thoughts - in charts (with color). For my daughter, who is a visual learner and struggles with Math, I think that the simple organization and color will really help her. We have been using Saxon, which is a daunting curriculum for a visual learner, in my opinion. It's so boring for her!
Monica R on Feb 10, 2017
We have done sets with my younger boys, I am hoping this will be effective with my older son.
Tina on Sep 8, 2016
Horixzons math has been working very well for us. This is our 3rd year with Horizons. My daughter is learning her math concepts well and even enjoys doing it!
Lori O on Sep 1, 2016
We have used same curriculum for math since Kinder and we love it
Ameye C on Aug 25, 2016
We love Horizons math! It reviews material on each worksheet from previous lessons, the lessons are all laid out for you, and it's very affordable. Plus the curriculum carries on for grades 7 and 8 with pre-algebra. Nicely done!

Does this include the teachers book and all the workbooks and the manipulative kit?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These kits include both the student textbooks and the teacher's guide, which includes answers for grading. It does not include manipulative. There are excellent manipulatives by grade levels that work very well with this curriculum for sale at Rainbow though. It is an easy teach, easy grade curriculum and I have loved it through the years. My children are always way ahead with this curriculum (I have graduated 2 and have 2 children to go) and they love doing it! (Well, as much as kids love doing Math and school work...that's always a day to day thing)
does this set include the tests? or do I purchase the tests separately?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tests are actually included in the student workbooks (in between lessons). You can either rip them out (along the perforated edges) and have your child take the test with a closed workbook or you can have the child take the test right out of the workbook. My boys never realize it's a test and complete it as "just another lesson" which seems to offer a lot less pressure for them and some pleasantly surprised kids.

great curriculum
This is an excellent math program. My son does one lesson daily. We supplement one page daily of Singapore Primary Mathematics Standard Edition 6A/6B. Both Math programs compliment each other. The Singapore program involves more deeper thinking; but Horizons reviews previous skills and builds on new ones. My son does math throughout the summer and even during other school breaks/vacations. He loves math.

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
