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.

Horizon Math is thorough and visually appealing. It is challenging, although I have my students work a year ahead, so this Horizon 3 book is for my upcoming 2nd grader.

This is my fifth kid to use the Horizon math workbooks. We use them for K-Grade 3 and then transition to Saxon Math.
Debbie H on Mar 15, 2020
Horizons math follows a spiral approach with each lesson including some easier work that was likely already mastered, ongoing work, and thorough introduction of a new concept. I am pleased with the results I've seen from using Horizons throughout elementary math. I see math curriculum as a tool and I can easily decide how many items of a certain concept my child needs to work on to keep it from being tedious or overwhelming.

Horizons is a great curriculum. Comprehensive with content and this level is just colorful enough to be eye catching without distraction for the student. This math curriculum works for both my sons. I feel confident we are learning all the math concepts they need to become proficient.

We love Horizons Math through grade 3!
Sheryl W on Jul 18, 2018
I used this curriculum with my older child, and loved how the lessons are colorful and in a spiral effect. I also learned that Horizons tends to be a bit higher in level, so it allowed some freedom in slowing down the pace if needed.

Have loved Horizon for a couple of my kids- needed the next grade:)

Horizons Math has been a good fit for both of my children. I really like the colorful fun pictures, it helps make math more fun. We have only used Horizons, and my children always score well in math on tests.
Meera L on Mar 22, 2017
I love horizon math. We are currently using 2nd grade and now are moving on to 3rd grade. My child likes the colorful books and variety of activities. The concepts are presented in a clear and systematic manner and there is lots of practice and repetition all throughout the book which makes the concepts easier to retain.
Pedro A P on Jan 26, 2017
My 3rd grade daughter was halfway through the Saxon 5/4 book and it is just too much for her. Saxon is great, but we needed to just slow down and review and cement our basic facts some more before moving into 5th grade math!
Christina W on Jan 11, 2017
love Horizons math. this is the next book for my son

Love the Horizons Math series. Used Grade 3 for two older kids and they liked the format and pace of the lessons. Easy to use and understand. Will keep using for the younger kids.

We have always used Horizons for our elementary math.
Erica B on Aug 10, 2016
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
This curriculum is a good fit for my 8 year old daughter. She likes the colorful pages and I like the variety of concepts covered.

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.

BEST ANSWER: One of the reasons that we love Horizins is because most of their things incorporate a Biblical worldview. Math, however, doesn't.

I could not be happier with the Horizons math program Each day offers some review problems as well as introducing a new concept or building upon a concept already learned This helps to keep my 8 year old interested in math I have found it very easy to teach with minimal preparation The teacher's manual can at times be a little vague in how to teach new concepts but otherwise is a helpful resource I recommend using the placement assessments to decide which level to use as it does seem to be ahead of some curriculum for the same grade Horizons has been a great fit for my family My daughter who was bored to tears with the repetition of our previous program once again enjoys 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
