Hello all! I am at a complete stand still when it comes to what math curriculum I want to use with my DD this fall. She will be in K. The curriculum we currently use incorporates Singapore math, but I also really love the look of Horizons. Have any of you used either of these or both? I can't seem to make a decision! Thanks for any input!

We have used Horizons for 1st-3rd grades and I love it. Dd has learned so much and I find it very well laid out. Dd loves the colorful sheets and the little puzzles and such that they do. We are switching to Saxon next year and dd is very upset, she just loves Horizons so much.

I have used both Singapore and Horizons in the elementary grades. I like both. Horizons is simple, colorful and easy to understand. Singapore will really make your child think. (not just memorizing facts, but understanding it) If you are on the fence, you might want to read some reviews before making your final decison. Here are a few sites where you can do that.
