good supplement
I supplement it with Singapore Primary Mathematics 5A & 5B. Horizons math is significantly easier then Singapore which provides a good balance, having my son do one page of each book daily. I have my son start working on his new math books in the beginning of every summer that way, he completes his math programs by the end of the school year. Horizons is a very long, lenghty program and Singapore is shorter in pages.

Our family has used all but 6th grade so far for this math program and has achieved positive results To fully achieve all the program has designed you MUST purchase the teachers manual Instructions/lessons are not presented in the worktext until 4th grade In addition you must drill math facts on a regular basis besides using worksheetsthere is not enough practice in the workbooksI also highly recommend buying the optional worksheets (or copying them from teachers manual) These provide invaluable practiceThis program works well for visual and hands-on learners Plenty of opportunities for easy manipulativesWhat I like best about the program is the continual review (they call it the spiral method) Concepts are never forgotten since the student reviews them continually throughout the yearMy only criticism is that the program is weak with their word problems I use a daily problem solving book to compensate

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

I am hopeful that this will help math be more approachable, as online didn't seem to connect with us. I think math is a hands-on type of learning, working through problems at a pace that allows stopping, thinking and assessing and so on, not watching a cartoon give an automated directive. This lesson seems approachable and we are looking forward to trying it for the first time this year.

I've been very happy with the approach of Horizons; been using it since kindergarten with my daughter.

Have used Horizons since K. Good use of review, repetition, and keeps it interesting with graphics. Worksheets, if needed or used, give additional practice.

This program is challenging, compact, and easy to use.

After using many popular math programs, I found that this one was the best fit for us. The teacher's portion of the lessons is introduced in about 15 minutes and the workbooks are colorful. The program also continues to review previous concepts in each lesson. I must say the teacher's manual is a must!! And read it cover to cover before you begin using it. I missed a lot of instructional information by not reading the entire manual before beginning the program.

Good series. Covers a lot of material.

my son has used Horizons Math for years. He loves it. And math is not even one of his best subjects but with this he actually learns what he is studying and enjoys doing math. I think its the approach that Horizons uses, and the lessons are short enough before my son losses focus but with the repeated approach they use my son learns the concepts. when in town, he will actually be counting up money or something and he will say, hey that's what I learned in my math book yesterday.

BEST ANSWER: It comes with a teachers guide which is around 450pages. Also, comes with two student workbooks which are around 80 lessons each. The student workbooks covers everything in the teachers guide, they are just broken into smaller books so that they are easier for the student to handle. Also included in the teachers guide are extra worksheets with answers, quarter test with answers, and a final exam with answers. All of these are included just for extra practice if needed and as an individual need basis.
