About Horizons Math:
Those who know me know that I often remark on what a blessing it is to have multiple children with multiple capabilities. Not only does it add unexpected dimensions to the family dynamics, but it also helps us to recognize the struggles and triumphs of a wider assortment of parents. Furthermore, it opens our eyes anew to the fact that one size does not fit all. Not in pantyhose. Not in math. While Developmental Math is an outstanding math program for the standard-issue child, it will bore the socks off the bright child who enjoys math. For the child who thrives on a challenge and finds math a wonderful mystery to be solved, choose Horizon Math.

Open any workbook and the first thing you will notice is how bright and colorful the pages are. But don't get the wrong impression; there is nothing fluffy about this program. Horizons Math includes analytical reasoning, memorization, and drill. The skills taught in Horizons Math readily apply to real-life situations. This is a fast-paced, hard-core math program. Using the spiral learning approach, new concepts are introduced while all the fundamental concepts learned in earlier units are reviewed and reinforced for true mastery. This repetition can drive some kids nuts, but spiral learning more closely parallels real life. Some workbooks teach only one topic until it is mastered, but when you use math, you are often employing addition, fractions, and multiplication to solve your problems. If your child frets about all the repetition, you can certainly eliminate all but a handful of the repeats, but reintroduce them if competency wanes.

In the younger grades, directions on the workbook pages are sparse. But they include a bit more student-directed instructions each year until your child is able to do the lessons independently. The teacher's manuals are optional, but beginning or harried moms will find them especially helpful in the early years when they include all the teaching tasks for your hands-on learners. Additional worksheets are also in the teacher's manual in case a student needs extra review on a concept. Each grade consists of three pieces: two colorful workbooks that contain 80 lessons apiece, and a teacher's manual. A placement test is also available.

    Great curriculum

    I have 3 kids working on this curriculum, 2 in math 4 and think it's a great program. My only problem is I wish I'd used them earlier!

    Looking forward to using this...

    My family us using the Horizons 3rd grade at this time.
    Like it so much, we went ahead and purchased the 4th grade version too.

    Loving it so far!

    This book has been great for my 4th grader. She does well with math in general and is able to work though most of these problems by herself while also feeling challenged at her level.

    We jumped ship mid-year

    I appreciate both the appearance and structure of Horizons Math. Colors! I love colorful pages, and they help capture my son's attention. Spiral review provides the opportunity to deepen understanding and reinforce concepts. This is our third year homeschooling, but we only discovered Timberdoodle in January. It was the perfect time, as we are looking for something different for next year. The online program we tried this year is so disappointing. Our fourth graded needed something off a computer screen NOW. He is enjoying again having a book he can touch and write in. I would suggest to parents considering Horizons to look into grade-appropriate manipulatives. If there is one thing I don't like about Timberdoodle complete curriculum kits, it is Teaching Textbooks, so I am glad there is the option to customize.

    Horizons Math 4

    I love Horizons Math. We have been using Horizons math for 3 years now. My younger son is now in Horizons Math 4. He loves it. Math is not a struggle. He is feeling good about his ability in math. Having used a number of the different grade levels of Horizons Math books, 4 is by far the most difficult. Currently my son is finishing 2 lessons a day. I know as we get further into the division that rate may slow down. Having a major in elementary mathematics, I would highly recommend Horizons Math. I would also say make sure to test your child and put your child in the correct level. The curriculum spirals upward and they need to understand at the lower lever before they can jump into a higher one. I worked with one student that tested into grade 4 horizons but she was in the 6th grade. As soon as she finished Horizons 4, Horizons 5 and 6 were a piece of cake. She zipped through them and is now above her grade level.
