If so how did your child do with the transition? I am considering the move and wanted to know if after using McRuffy they seemed well prepared to do Horizons math.
Thank you in advanced for any information and help.
Has anyone went from McRuffy math to Horizons math?

I have not transitioned from McRuffy to Horizons, but we "tried" transitioning from McRuffy to Saxon. As far as a "traditional" math program I think McRuffy is a bit ahead (after finishing McRuffy 3 my son almost tested into Saxon 6/5- the only thing he didnt know was percentages). I would take Horizon's placement test, which I believe you can find on Sonlight's website. Any math transition can be tricky just because different math programs teach skills in different order and in different ways, but I think the placement test will give you a good idea of where to start. Best of luck:)
