Comparison: LIFEPAC and Switched-on Schoolhouse

Although Switched-On Schoolhouse was originally based on the LIFEPAC curriculum, it has grown to so much more. Video clips, sound files, and interactive learning games have transformed Switched-On Schoolhouse into an advanced multimedia-based learning environment.

Both LIFEPAC and Switched-On Schoolhouse are based on the mastery system of learning, in which concepts are completely mastered by the student before the next concept is introduced.

While the LIFEPAC Curriculum is available for grades K-12, the Switched-On Schoolhouse is only available for grades 3 and above.

Product Comparison: LIFEPAC and Horizons Mathematics Horizons Mathematics provides an alternative to the LIFEPAC curriculum for students who prefer to learn mathematical concepts in a multi-tasking environment. While students using the LIFEPAC and Switched-On Schoolhouse curriculums completely master one concept before moving on to the next, students using Horizons Mathematics work on several concepts at a time, slowly building on each concept as they advance.

Due to this multi-tasking environment, concepts come up earlier in the Horizons Math curriculum than in the LIFEPAC curriculum. This makes it a more advanced curriculum at the earlier grades, eventually evening out with the LIFEPAC curriculum by the time students finish the 6th grade program.

While the LIFEPAC Mathematics curriculum is available for grades K-12, the Horizons Math curriculum is only available for grades K-6.

Product Comparison: LIFEPAC and Horizons Language Arts

The LIFEPAC Language Arts curriculum is a comprehensive Language Arts program in which all areas of the English language, including spelling, writing, vocabulary, and more, are covered in one Language Arts curriculum. Horizons Language Arts, on the other hand, is divided into three separate areas: Phonics & Reading, Spelling & Vocabulary, and Penmanship. This separation of topics allows students to study Language in a multitasking environment.

While the LIFEPAC curriculum is available for grades K-12, the Horizons Language Arts program is only available for a few elementary grades. Phonics & Reading programs are available for kindergarten and 1st grade students, while Spelling & Vocabulary lessons are available for 1st and 2nd grade students only.

Although best used at the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade levels, the Horizons Penmanship program can be used by students at any grade level to enhance their penmanship skills.
