Category Description for Horizons Curriculum:

Alpha Omega Horizons is a Bible-based, fast-paced, spiral approach to learning introduction, review, reinforcement. This works well for students who catch on quickly, with constant review that keeps concepts fresh. These are teacher-led courses with colorful student workbooks and thorough teacher manuals. This curriculum offers two courses at the preschool level Preschool for Three's and Horizons Preschool, something not offered in other AOP curriculum lines. These two levels lay a solid foundation for future elementary levels. Although not available for as many subject areas as LIFEPAC or SOS, Horizons is comprehensive in the subjects that are offered. Math is available for K-8, Phonics & Reading for K-3, Spelling & Vocabulary for 1-3, Penmanship for 1-5, Health for K-8, and Physical Education for PK-12. Recently updated, the Horizon's Math curriculum no longer includes Biblical content.

Alpha Omega Horizons now offers complete curriculum sets for kindergarten through 3rd grade. At the kindergarten level, the set includes Horizons Health, Horizons Phonics & Reading, and Horizons Math. First through third grades sets include Horizons Math, Horizons Health, Horizons Phonics & Reading, Horizons Spelling & Vocabulary, and Horizons Penmanship. These sets include all of the required books for each subject both student and teacher.

Category Description for Alpha Omega Mathematics:

There are 4 different teaching options available to help you meet your math education needs: Lifepacs, Horizons, Switched on Schoolhouse (flash drive for Windows only) and Monarch (online). Please see each option for the full course description. Christian content is included in the Lifepac, Switched on Schoolhouse and Monarch curricula.

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.

We are just finishing Math 1 WB 1 and found it helpful for my twins. It is easy to use. Not much 'teaching', more a chance to work on skills.

My daughter is struggling with SIngapore Math, so we are trying Horizons for a change to see if it's more her style.

Love Horizons math!
Marie K on Aug 8, 2018
Decided to purchase Book 1 and Book 2 rather than the complete set from the teachers manual due to other's noting they didn't use the teacher's manual much for this age. This will be our first year with Horizons, but I like how colorful it is, and the spiral learning method will be a great fit for my child who gets easily bored and likes to have new concepts often.
A C on Aug 2, 2018
We've been using Horizon for 4 years now, and it's never disappointed. My kids are excelling at math, and the simple, fun, and colorful worksheets help them take ownership of their work.

Tina L on May 8, 2017
I have been using Horizon Math workbooks for my younger children for many years. They are thorough, colorful and easy to use. I find that by the time my children have gone through the first two grades, they are ready to transition to Teaching Textbooks.
Kellyanne E on May 7, 2017
My kids love the colorful pages and bite-sized lessons. It is a good math program as well, for kids that like to work independently. Good easy progression. I do not use parent/teacher book at this stage.

I used Horizon with the other kids and like how colorful and clear it is.
Anna S on Aug 9, 2016
I have used this before with a previous child, and even though I have found now that it is a little intensive and puts them ahead of others using different curriculum, I plan to use it anyways, and just take it slower the second time around.
Brooke H on Jun 13, 2016
saw Horizons at a Homeschool fair, i liked it.

Horizons Math
This math program is wonderful. We have used all levels 1st - 6th and Pre Algebra. The lessons are very well explained and there is a good amount of review. It is a great program!

We love this math program
We have been using Horizons math for 1 month now and we love it. My daughter was using Math U See alpha and she grasped concepts quickly but Mastering each concept was harder and required a repetitiveness that bored her. Horizons moved quickly, constantly introducing new while consistently reviewing past concepts. She loves it and is learning better with this method.

Very Happy
This is my second time around (second child) using horizons and it has worked well for both. It's not overwhelming instead it's colorful and lays a great foundationat first grade level.

I love Horizons Math! We are using level K for my kindergartner and my 1st grader is using level 1 I love the review and my older daughter really does well with it It is broken down into small sections which makes her feel more successful and not overwhelmed by large numbers of problems My younger daughter with a smaller attention span also does well with the small sections as it allows her to not linger on any one topic for too long We plan to continue on with Horizons next year as well I believe it is an excellent value for the quality of instruction received
December 23, 2008
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
