Category Description for Miquon Math Grade 2
Math is not just numbers! Using Cuisenaire rods, Miquon Math Labs allows children to model numbers and operations concretely. It uses a handson, patternbuilding, discovery method that fosters independence and creativity in problem solving. The unique format of the program allows for flexibility  use each book straight through, or teach topically. It introduces children to all four basic math operations in grade one  plus fractions, clock arithmetic, area, volume and factoring  building confidence in children and taking the "mystery" out of these otherwisedelayed topics. By third grade, children understand different base systems and graph algebraic equations! These are not typical workbooks that test what a child already has learned, but lab sheets  teaching pages. Children are shown that, while there is only one correct solution, there are different ways to arrive at it, and it encourages them to develop their own techniques. The "standard" approach is not always the best. For example, which is easier: 400  298 or 398  298 + 2 or 400  300 + 2? Techniques like these really help when caught without pencil or paper! After using Miquon with four children, we can attest that this program has promoted flexibility in problem solving  using the right technique for the situation. Ours now tackle new or difficult problems creatively, even fearlessly!
I would also recommend purchase of the Annotations. A teacher's guide for all six workbooks, it contains a general overview and several suggestions on how to present each major concept. It also provides preliminary activities for a concrete understanding of the math concepts as well as more detailed explanations for many of the lab sheets. While answers are supplied for some of the more "tricky" sheets, most worksheets are shown sans answers, so take the time to fill in the answers as you correct work for your first "math labs" student  then you'll have a completed key to use with the next!

ShillerMath (a Montesorri program) continues in a strong hands on/exploratory approach to math. Beast Academy couples strong concept development and instruction with graphic novel type of illustrations. Finally, Saxon Math is a solid math option with lots of review and repetition. Manipulative options are available for Saxon Math Intermediate 3, 4, and 5. There are placement tests available on our website  search for "math placement tests".

I feel that Singapore Math is best along with the problem solving text that is grade specific. My son finds SM very advanced and easy to understand. The problem solving text is multi stepped and challenging. I've heard Saxon Math is good but I've not used it. Reply

I find that the books are really versatile. typically, I see a first grader using level one, the orange book, and a second grader, level two, the red book. Sometimes a second grader is ready for the blue book. I find that once children are on a roll, they can sometimes move through all the books by the end of fourth grade. I also have found the yellow book to be great for third/fourth/fifth, and the purple for fifth, sixth. They were designed to be used only in grades one through three, with two books per year: orange, red in first, blue, green in second, yellow, purple in third. This works for advanced children beautifully, as well. Camille Hayward, Director, The Lake and Park School, Seattle, WA. Reply
