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.

to aid me in teaching my son's horizons 3 workbook. I like how the workbook is laid out...colorful....fairly simple, introduces new concept, then reviews previous concept. We aren't too far into the workbook yet, but it doesn't seem too overwhelming, but also seems to cover what he needs to learn.

Does this have a review for the Horizon 2 at all included in it?
Cassy on Jul 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There is a 5 page readiness test included which could review a few concepts. There are also several pages of supplemental practice sheets included to help with concepts that need more review. Horizons should have a readiness test free to download online to be sure your student is ready for this level. Horizons reviews past material often to help a student learn. They spend 2-5 days introducing a concept, 2-5 days practicing, then review the material every two weeks, then take a 4 week break, then review again every 2 weeks a few more times.
Is the spiral bound version of this teacher's guide an older edition?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is. Horizons changed from a spiral binding on their teacher's to a "perfect" (i.e. paperback) binding a few year ago. The binding was the only thing that changed at that time.

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
