I've used this series with my older two girls and look forward to using it again this fall with my son It's inexpensive which is a definite plus with four children Also it introduces the four basic arithmetic processes - addition subtraction multiplication and division - right from the start It also offers helpful insight of how to do math in a different way than how I was taught which sometimes helps my kids understand it better Using the Cuisenaire rods helped my kids understand the concepts and they loved having something to manipulate They loved the fun pages included in these too I highly recommend this series The lab annotations doesn't have answers to every sheet; most of them are included- the ones left out are easy enough for the parents Also there is great information in it on presenting different concepts like the difference between 3x4 and 4x3 An inexpensive teacher's manual is a plus too!You need usually two workbooks a year so you don't need to purchase it all at once Also if you decide to start using and your child isn't in first grade it's a good idea to start from the first book I did with my 4th grader and she just worked through the books quicker but it wasn't too babyish for her and introduced things she hadn't covered

I cannot recommend this program highly enough! I have used it for 7 years with many students We all look forward to math time every day It truly teaches math concepts instead of memorization or drill and does it in a fun laboratory setting Students learn that there are more than one way to write a problem and get an answer The cuisenaire rods are easy to use to learn the basic functions plus fractions and other math concepts I often tell my students they are learning high school math because it introduces geometry and algebraic concepts in a way that grade school kids understand My 7th grader who started with Miquon in 1st grade has the ability to problem solve think outside the box and solve math mentally because of the foundation Miquon gave him It is a little intimidating to teach at first because each lesson is not laid out for you but if you use Lab Annotations and First Grade Diary to learn along with your children it is a fun experience for everyone You don't have to do each page a certain way in order to be successful (a great problem solving skill for moms to learn)

Fun math
Took apart all the books and sorted by subject and put In a binder. My son has to do math last so he can do as much as he would like.

We didn't finish the orange and red books in first grade We went pretty slowly to keep things fun and interesting I should have done more of the enrichment suggestions in the annotations manual but overall we had a good yearThis program is great if you think outside the box and don't feel the need to slavishly stick to a school curriculum timeline/ scope sequence chartFor 2nd grade I plan to use more manipulatives and use these worksheets as a supplement to other activity-based learning

I love Julie Bogart/Brave Writer and this is one that she recommended that she loved using with her kids. Also, I have read so many good things about Miquon Math, My son loves math and is a very right brained learner and I think this will be a good fit for him/us!

Solid foundation in math

Friends used it
Ashley M on Sep 1, 2016
I wanted a simple visual maths curriculum both my children could do this year. Hopefully this will be it.
Zhenya M on Aug 28, 2016
This is the best hands on simple to teach at home math lessons I have found in my 10 years of home schooling.It gives true understanding and a great foundation for all learning types since there is a few sujestions of how to teach each lesson and if used with cuisenaire rod lessons the child has a very tactile way to solve a problem in the book and some that they come across in life.

Looking for a supplement to Singapore Math for more hands-on practice, and hopefully some activities which may engage younger children as well.
Yvonne P on Aug 23, 2016
I heard it was good for creative-type thinkers who abhor repetition....this is my daughter.
Jonni M on Aug 11, 2016

Math comprehension for my child.

I learned math by miquon when I was homeschooled as a child, and now I want to use it to teach my boys math! :)

To supplement school math program
Melissa B on Apr 21, 2016
I heard that this program is a great complement to Singapore Math. I also want to do math year-round, so I like the idea of having a different text for variety.
Rebecca L on Mar 25, 2016
I love how this math program really encourages figuring things out and thinking things through instead of just getting the right answer.
Mikaela R on Mar 18, 2016
This was highly recommended by our homeschool support group leader and we are eager to try it!
Holly S on Mar 2, 2016
This is a gift for my granddaughter who loves math. I found this program was great for her father and uncles when they were children! My children enjoyed demystifying math with Miquon.
Lise H on Feb 26, 2016
hands on math materials. looks simple yet effective and very affordable.
Lisa M on Feb 5, 2016
looked like fun.
sherry y on Feb 4, 2016
Read a review that it was good for visual learners. I have an autistic son who thinks in pictures and is struggling with math.
Sarah Ellen O on Feb 2, 2016
We're looking for math to help my daughter improve some math skills. She thought this one looked fun!

Hands-on, old school math!

I hear about it from another homeschool mom.

Good reviews from friends and other online users.
Anna R on Nov 7, 2015
I'm hoping to supplement the public school math curriculum and expand my children's understanding of math (numbers, values and relationships) and math concepts by following the examples in these labs at home with our Cuisenaire rods.
Jennifer T on Oct 28, 2015
My friend has this for her second grader and really likes it, so I decided to use it for my second grader as a math supplement.
Jennifer S on Oct 14, 2015
Came highly recommended by my sister
Kevin H on Oct 9, 2015
I have a special need child who is struggling with the amount of writing expected in our current math curriculum. After much research we have decided that Maquon Math may be a better fit for his hands on learning style.

Are there prerequisites to the program that my kindergartner needs to master before beginning Miquon?
A shopper on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it would depend on your teaching style. I'm new to homeschooling and have only started this year although I have many years of teaching experience. I have a just turned five year old who sits in on lessons with my 3rd grader. The cuisinare rods are very helpful. I also don't follow the book all the way through, but skip around to what I think my son needs to work on. Definitely get the teacher guide. It's a different way to teach math, but not hard to do. It's great for kids who need to connect abstract numbers to more concrete concepts.
