I'm thinking of using Alpha Omega Horizons or Lifepac for 1st gr. next year. Are they heavily religious? I'm not wanting something that's going to impose their religious beliefs on dd. How much religion is in their math curriculum? Thoughts?
Flipping through Book 1 and Book 2, I see absolutely nothing Biblical. I would never have known these math books were from a Christian publisher except for the fact that I personally know they are. I don't know about the teacher's manual though.
I DO know that the Horizons Phonics K has little pictures of Bibles in it and such - just sprinkled throughout. But the math had nothing. And IF by chance I missed something, it's probably just in one lesson (I flipped through!).
So I would imagine the 1st grade books are the same.
