FINALLY GETTING SOMEWHERE!
After struggling through our first 6 months of homeschooling with frustrating online math (Common Core with no explanations!) and Saxon Math (not quite fast-paced enough), we finally turned to Horizons. Not only are we making progress, there have been many days when DD has said "I'm going to go ahead and do an extra lesson." What?! We really love the look and the format. The Teacher's Guide is actually helpful and the manipulatives are actually helpful and can be used for more than just one year. My only problem with it is that it stops at around 6th or 7th grade with Algebra. Fingers crossed that they will continue this series!

AOP math
My son loves Horizons colorful prints. I like that they don't bore the kids with repetition. It teaches, you have problems and move on. It doesn't completely move on though. The problems keep popping in here and there.

Horizons Math 2 Book 1
I love Horizons for its colorful pages, and thorough treatment of all aspects. My kids are well above grade level in math because of our Horizons programs! I'm thankful for it.

Horizons Math helps my young ones to understand basic math, even though their foundations were poorly set in the past. Each concept is carefully taught, reviewed often, and this is done in a way that is interesting and fun. The books are colorful, and the work does not advance too fast for little ones, nor does it drag. These work for child after child, and I have used them for 6 children so far with no issues. I have not needed to find a different method for any of them!

My kids love Horizons!
Not only do my kids love it, but I love Horizons Math as well! We've been using it for several years now. It's colorful and keeps the kids interested. There's not so much work that they get bored but just enough repetition to make sure they learn each new process. This is typically advanced over public school math, so if your student is coming from public school you may want to test him to see his level before purchasing.

I do not like Horizons.
I have this curriculum away as I did not feel it was a complete study program that prepared students for more advanced math.

Thorough math program
My son is doing great with Horizon's math this year. I appreciate the built in review and the nice easy pace that helps to solidify the material for him.

After starting to home school this last January the "approved" curriculum list was overwhelming I did my best and HATED the books they "recommended" So I read some reviews and settled on this book in both the 2nd grade and 6th grade version We LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Well worth the money and the instructions for the kids are easy to understand and they teach with color pictures If you have a student that learns well by reading a concept then given examples to solve the problem before being set free to solve on their own this series is very highly recommended

Horizons is a great math program It is interesting and colorful It includes plenty of drill and some mental math It is affordable and great for fast learners However because I don't like rushing my children along there is a very simple fix to make Horizons work without stressing the child out I just use it one half grade level lower For example my 2nd grader is using grade 2-book 1 the second half of the year In 3rd grade she will use 2-book 2 and 3-book 1 In this way the program is more developmentally appropriate while being on par for standardized testing and still moving quickly enough to be interesting and challenging

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

We have loved Horizons math for years. Our twins went from level one through level six. It was the first curriculum for elementary math we thought of for a little one joining us this year. It's easily portable, the pages are interesting and inviting, the explanations are straightforward, and it cycles back through each concept so nothing is forgotten.

The spiral approach to math is the only way my girls learn math and so few programs use this method, we love Horizons math!

Crystal S on Jul 23, 2018
I was given the workbook 1 to check out for our first year of homeschooling from a fellow homeschooler. My daughter picked it up so easily. She was in kindergarten but did the 1st grade set. The spiral learning method has worked out great for us and we will continue with this curriculum. It is very colorful and easy to understand.

We loved Horizons Math 1! Ready for Math 2!
Steven S on Jul 13, 2018
Horizons Math is easy to teach, fun for my kids to look at, and constantly reinforces what they're learning by giving them opportunities to practice problems again. I've used it for years, with many of my children, and believe it's one of the best out there!

Horizons Math is a solid program. There is some repetition-which is good for kids who need it. If your child doesn't, it may be boring. My students love the colorful pages, and I appreciate the tear out sheets.

What we are used to using up till about third grade
Mike S on Mar 8, 2018
I love Horizons Math! 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.

We have used the Horizons program because its thorough and demanding, and the kids learn a lot, yet it builds on skills so it's not overwhelming.

My son loves the colorful pages and the less repetitious (than Saxon, for example) nature of these math books. The skills continually build, rather than spiral.

Do you need the teacher guide? We used the grade 1 and we never even cracked open the book
A shopper on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We didn't use the teacher's guide. We really used this book as more of a math practice workbook (rather than a curriculum with lessons taught by mom). I would just sit down with my son and go over the page for the day to make sure he understood it all and then let him do it. I would pull out manipulatives as I saw fit or explain concepts as needed, but I didn't use the teacher's guide or teach any math lessons. Plus, the math at this level is still simple enough that you can figure it in your head and don't need an answer key.
