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.

Deb Wielhouwer5 Stars Out Of 5March 15, 2006Deb WielhouwerWe have been using Horizons Math since my son was in the 2nd grade.He had been struggling and hated math.He has done beautifully with it!He even likes it now.I would say that the teacher book for 5th and 6th grade isn't as helpful as the publisher claims, except for additional worksheets and for the answer keys, but by the 5th and 6th grade, the student is more than equipped to handle most of the information himself anyway.Our son is almost finished with the 6th grade book, and has taken a placement test for Saxon's prealgebra/algebra courses.After reviewing prealgebra, we are confident that our son is equipped to finish the prealgebra by the end of the summer, and will start Algebra 1 in September of this year!Horizons has definitely worked for this son, and so far, for our other 2 boys as well!They love the constant review and the challenges, and they feel equipped to meet the challenges of this curriculum!
