Horizons Math 1 Student Book 1 is presented in a colorful format, which can be helpful for some students, but distracting for others. This consumable student workbook has removable pages, which is a plus. The spiral approach also is helpful for some students, but could be distracting for others. Since the review is built into each lesson, several topics will be covered in a single lesson. But most students benefit from some form of regular review.
