Alpha Omega Publications Horizons Math, Grade 5, Complete Set

No more hours of boring, endless repetition - your kids will actually thank you for this interactive math curriculum! Each level has two student workbooks, but the teacher handbook is the main component of the program. All instruction is provided through one-on-one teacher instruction, which is the biggest difference between Horizons and the self-guided Lifepacs.

Another big focus in Horizons is hands-on learning using a variety of manipulatives, which can mostly be found around the house: pencils, pipe cleaners, play or real money, thread, a timer, clock, yardstick, etc.

Novice home-educators should not be intimidated by the amount of teacher involvement as it is carefully layed out in the beginning of each year's teacher handbook. The teacher handbook also provides a variety of teaching suggestions and supplemental activities for additional practice.

The concepts covered in Horizons 5 include:

  • Exponents
  • Addition and Subtraction with 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 Digits
  • 3-digit Times 3-digit Multiplication
  • Division with a 3-digit Quotient and a Remainder
  • Averaging with Remainders

I have used Horizons Math for several years. This past year my daughters requested to use a certain other curriculum, but before the year was out they wanted to switch back. I will definitely be using Horizons again this year because the curriculum promotes good comprehension and proficiency. Both daughters want to work in the medical field and those skills are crucial to their success. As an additional bonus, the curriculum is lively and engaging. It keeps their attention much better than others I have tried. Thank you Horizons!

Horizons has been very good for my daughter. She struggles in Math and the spiral curriculum and colorful pages keep her attention better.
