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.

Excellent program
I haven't found any other program to be as good, and believe me I've looked at several, and have worked through a couple of the other top programs out there. Nothing is as good as Horizons to me and my kids. I have a girl and a boy who process differently, but they both do well.

So far I love using Horizons Math for my son He likes that there are a variety of exercises each day and the colorful pages keep him interested I like the idea of being able to switch to other Alpha Omega systems and be on the same scope and sequence later if he needs a different method My only criticism so far would be that the K workbook has the student learn to write a four with the triangle shape and the 1st grade book jumps in with a square-shaped four

Horizons is one of the best math programs for K-6 That's what Cathy Duffy saidIt is very easy to use for the teacher and student it's colorful the student likes it Not too many problems (only 2 pages/lesson) However the TM is not much help It says to teach the clock but doesn't explain or give you an idea how Also Horizons is not strong in conceptual math That's why I recommend to supplement MEP math which is free or Singapore We do 2 pages Horizons and one page Singapore I only buy the workbooks for all including HorizonsFor manipulatives which I think are essential especially for K-3 I use -base ten blocks for place value (see if you can find hundreds tens and ones in different colors if not you can make them yourself with cardboard )-abacus (must have for pre algebra like 4 + what makes 10)-unifix cubes-clock -pattern blocks

We started Horizons 1 with our 5 & 6 year olds for first grade in 2008 They are now 6 & 7 and over 2/3 of the way through the curriculum Horizons was a good fit for our five year old who has a "gift" for math We did not buy any of the manipulatives although we have many ourselves Our 6/7 yo son struggles a little bit He still gets 95-100% on each worksheet & test but it's a little bit harder for him than his brother Horizons is more of a "picture - abstract" traditional way of teaching math It's colorful and we love the repetition For a child who "gets" math easily it's a wonderful enriching program I did not follow every teacher's instruction in the book until we were about half way through Then we started our flashcards and a lot of personal review on areas where the boys were struggling a little bit like time money place valueAll-in-all Horizons 1 is excellent and offered at a great price It does not take much prep time at all and for our family worked well with various ages and two different learning styles (auditory & kinesthetic) However we did supplement A LOT with Mailbox Magazine Math Mammoth etc in trouble spots Horizons does have extra work and drills that you can copy but I can't say that I found them overly helpful I think that if a child doesn't understand why he's doing something drills don't necessarily help When he gets to Algebra he'll be lostI would suggest Horizons for the child who will easily understand math concepts without a lot of explanation For a teacher the program is a breeze and the teacher guides are invaluable I did not find it necessary for our first graders to know how to skip count by 6s 8s 9s etc so we just ignored those ideas for practice My oldest son needed a LOT more explanation and practice of place values that are so important and not heavily stressed in this program There is lot of practice of looking at bars and units but sometimes you really need them in your hands to help you "get" it

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 used Horizon math since I began homeschooling 10 years ago My children enjoy the colorful workbook pages The workbook format is convenient for grading and work sample submission Horizon 1 provides a solid foundation for further success in math At this level the TM does provide some direction and support but for my family I usually do math with the child and correct while we do the lesson This program is well worth the minimal cost I have found my children have greatly benefited from the foundation set in Horizon 1

My daughter does well with the approach of reviewing as you learn new skills. We definitely feel free to skip areas that we have mastered, as assignments can feel like busy work at times. Overall a good curriculum that we combine with another.

I had purchased the grade 1 book for my bright kindergarten girl, and she blew through the first part, but I didn't want to go on when she was needing some review, so I decided to purchase the same book so she can go through it again but will fly through until the more difficult portions come. My son has excelled in his grade 2 book, so we're purchasing the grade 3 for him.
