Alpha Omega Publications Horizons Math, Grade 4, 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 4 include:

  • Multiplication of 2-digit Times 2-digit with Carrying
  • Division with 2-digit Divisor and Quotient
  • Addition/Subtraction of Unlike Fractions
  • Pre-Algebra Concepts
  • Ratios
  • and More

I have used Horizons math for the past four years. My daughter loves it. My husband and I considered using a different curriculum this year and my daughter was adament that we use Horizons. The 4th grade workbook seems more colorful and seems to have more "fun" activities to apply the concepts they have learned. In the past, we seemed to get a bit bogged down with review, but this year it seems so much better. My daughter couldn't wait for the new school year so she could see what she was going to learn in her Horizons math book. She loves math and I think it is partly because of this curriculum.

Horizons math for K-6th grade has been the best math program I have ever worked with. Th way each lesson reviews past concepts and then introduces new material is an effective learning method! Love it!

If your child likes math, you will love this curriculum. Very colorful and engaging. It does move fast so be prepared to spend some time on extra practice if needed. Very thorough, too. We used Horizons for a few years then used Saxon for 3rd grade. What a mistake. We're definitely going back to Horizons.

I like Horizons math for my 8 year old boy, we also used this math in the 3rd grade. My son gets bored easily and the colorful pages and constant review help.

A few years ago, I pulled my daughter out of public school because their math program was failing the ENTIRE 3rd grade- 3 classes. My daughter had low self-esteem in math. This program built her self-esteem quickly. It also filled in the holes left by the curriculum the public school used - they skipped important concepts! After her 6th grade year with Horizons, we started her in Algebra 1 with Teaching Textbooks (secular)and she is still doing wonderfully. Horizons is thorough with their math concepts, yet fun and easy to look at and learn (and grade).
