My son very much likes the hands-on aspect of this program, making it a joy to do. The book does, however, introduce multiplication very early and not very clearly (based on what is in the Orange Book and the Lab Sheet Annotations I am not sure how you are supposed to introduce it). The books do offer, however, an easy way to change the order in which you introduce concepts (the pages are organized by category across all of the books), so we will likely use the books that way and complete all of addition and subtraction before moving on to multiplication.

Great product
I changed to Miquin for my 1st grader when I saw how dependent he had become on counting to figure out addition problems. He is quick and has a good understanding of addition and subtraction, but I wanted a different way of teaching beginning concepts. I skipped most of the first unit (counting) and started in the easy addition to introduce the math blocks.
He has progressed well and is understanding adding more conceptually now. Miquon worksheets can be a bit confusing, but I have read the 1st grade diary in the past and refer to the lab sheet annotations if I get confused. Easy to implement-no teacher prep-I am confident in my math teaching abilities, so I don't want a hand holding type program. I will use this for now or switch back to Singapore as his needs change.

I purchased Miquon Red book at a used curriculum sale and love it, but want to start with Orange first

I LOVE Miquon for my older sons (now 18 and 16) and believe that helped give them a strong foundation in Math. They are very math minded. My five year old is now starting it.

I have used Miquon for several years. Love this curriculum. Simple and short and fun worksheets using cuisinaire rods.
Kyra P on Jun 6, 2017
A friend suggested I try them and they look fun!
Robyn S on Jun 1, 2017
I love the approach in Miquon - now I'm looking to use this method with a student who is a little behind.
Julie H on May 22, 2017
I have heard good things about Miquon and I am wanting to try something new to supplement Singapore, which while adequate, isn't the most interesting approach.
Sara W on Mar 29, 2017
This is a great, hands-on math curriculum. I love the use of cuisenaire rods with the worksheets. I think it has helped my son to understand the concepts behind the rules.
Katie N on Feb 20, 2017
"We are currently doing Singapore math with my 7yo and not loving it. A friend who was also using Singapore and switched to Miquon raved about how great this method is. I am excited to start with my 5yo and possibly my 7yo as well."
Whitney C on Jan 31, 2017
Good for teaching young ones math
Elizabeth D on Jan 10, 2017
I used Miquon for 5 of our children. Now the grandchildren are getting started with it.
Melanie D on Dec 29, 2016
Miquon is my favorite math choice for early elementary; besides the aestheticly pleasing page variation, the content is varied and does not appear repetitive to the user.
Michelle H on Dec 9, 2016
Third child using Miquon for math. We love Miquon because it makes math virtually stress-free.
Emily F on Nov 28, 2016
We love the Miquon Math series. I used it when I was a classroom teacher and have used it with my older two children. Now that my youngest is in Kindergarten, I"m purchasing Level 1 to use with her as she's ready for it.
Cathleen N on Nov 4, 2016
Own for daughter. She likes it, we like it. The method used by the creators is by far superior to other methods I have researched. Buying this one for our son.
Runswithchildre on Sep 1, 2016
Miquon is an extremely great way to teach Math concepts. You have to go trough all the books before you fully understand the benefits of this programs vs. others. This by far is my favorite over Singapore, Horizon, Math U See, etc. for the younger grades. I learn so much myself.

Chloe R on Aug 29, 2016
Tried and true. We have used this for many of our children. It works.
Amybeth B on Aug 2, 2016
Great math curriculum to give little ones a strong start in understanding mathematics using manipulatives. Very economical and solid.
Amy K on Jul 16, 2016
I'm looking forward to using Miquon again with my grandchild. My daughter enjoyed working through these books 15 years ago.
Kathy B on Jul 15, 2016
I like the method of learning math that these books seem to provide.
Brandi D on Jul 10, 2016
I am so excited to find a hands-on math program that works with the concept of numbers rather than the written expression of them. I was getting ready to write my own program until I found Miquon. I'm so excited to start it with my son, and I can't wait to see how he does. He is in Kindergarten now, so it's a perfect time to start. I want math to be fun a relevant for him from the very beginning, and this looks like a great program to do just that.

Vicki S on Mar 18, 2016
I'm getting an extra copy, so I can do the lessons ahead of and with my kindergarten aged son.
Kelly S on Mar 16, 2016
trying something new with my third child - she really seems to like math, so I thought I would try this
Nanette M on Mar 8, 2016
This was chosen as a supplement to our main math curriculum, which is Singapore. This is one of the best curriculum purchases I have made. It is the perfect complement to the Singapore approach, and I feel like it has reinforced some concepts that were shaky for my first and second grader.
Alyssa G on Feb 10, 2016
Our first time using this program.
Justin C on Jan 13, 2016
After visiting Miquon's web page, we've decided to give this method of early math learning a try in our homeschool.
Lyndsay M on Dec 14, 2015
I want my grandchildren to have the same great foundation in mathematics as my children. Both of my children excelled in math classes throughout their academic careers after learning from this series.
Arlene V on Dec 9, 2015
My son and daughter-in-law have used this series for all 8 grandkids. The oldest is now on a full scholarship to Pomona, the number one liberal arts college in the nation, and the youngest is 4 yrs old following her siblings foot steps. I am ordering them for our daughter's two youngest. They are 4 & 5 years. Our insists on full understanding rather than formulas and in his opinion this series is the best for young learners. He follows this series with the Key 2 series.
Karen B on Dec 1, 2015
