We're only 11 lessons into our Horizons 6 math book but so far the kids are really enjoying it. We like the clean, colorful layout of the student workbook. This is our first year using Horizons. It's a little hard transitioning from one curricula to the other, but overall Horizons has made it easy for us.

We have used Horizons from K-6th now and I can say that it is a solid math program. At times I didn't get why they were doing something but now at the end I see the big picture and have a child who really knows his math skills. I think this is one program many don't utilize the teaching book often enough. And there were times I taught a concept in another manner to best explain something. The program does introduce topics early but with the spiral method the child builds on previous knowledge over the years. Just about the time a subject seems to get boring or too much it shifts into another topic. I liked the tests every 10 lessons to insure the child knows the material. The tests are usually the information from several lessons back or farther. So the child had a few days or a week from the last lessons to the testing. I do think in some areas more teaching would help understand a concept but there are loads of online options for a quick video. We did not buy any manipulative package over the years but did have on hand basic manipulatives. Overall, at the end of it now, I can say it's a good program. I would encourage people to stick with it all the way or just do either K-3 or 4-6. Since concepts are introduced early it would be harder to move into this program after 4th.

My 2 kids are doing very well with these math books. This is our first year using them and they have enjoyed the colorful pages and the different array of problems in each lesson.

This product has wonderful illustrations which makes the pages more inviting to kids. Academically the math is difficult but is explained step by step. I have used Horizon for all three of my children.

So far so good! I have loved Horizons Math through 5th grade, now we are starting 6th and so far so good. I just wish it went higher than 6th grade!
