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 used Miquon with my other 5 children and thought it was a great curriculum. Number 6 is now ready so here we go (-:

I have a first grader this year for the first time in a very long time. I used math-u-see in the past and loved the visual approach. This seems somewhat similar but very budget friendly.

Have used previously and love it.

I want my grandchildren to use what I used with my children. Love this system.

I used this book as a child. Now I want to see if my daughter likes it.
Jeremiah B on Oct 17, 2018
Fun and rigorous at the same time. So many different ways of approaching math in this book...it has a method for every type of learner.
Joe G on Oct 16, 2018
We needed a math program for our first grader that got straight to the point. Looks like a different approach to teaching math. We shall see.
Tiffany O on Sep 28, 2018
This item was suggested to me by other homeschool moms as a very effective and helpful curriculum

Dale L on Sep 16, 2018
When I was home schooled as a child I used MIquon Math. Now that I am home schooling my own children, I have done a lot of looking into different curriculum. I have found that this one still stands above the rest in its approach to teaching and learning.
Shannon B on Sep 8, 2018
I have heard great things about this math program!
Kelsey T on Aug 14, 2018
Used it before with my older child and loved how it taught him math.
Heather S on Aug 11, 2018
This is great math curriculum that separates math from English language learning. One of my children is significantly delayed in his language acquisition and before this curriculum he struggled with traditional math that used primarily word problems.
Nicole M on Aug 6, 2018
For my daughter's first grade home school year
Lydia W on Jul 11, 2018
I used Miquon with my older children. It is thorough, interesting, and fun. Now I'm using it with my younger daughter and look forward to seeing her love math!

I find the math book we are currently using inadequate. This series came highly recommended by a fellow homeschooling mother.
Mary O on Jan 18, 2018
Inexpensive and effective math program. Hands on math is always top on my list.
Chase M on Dec 11, 2017
I started with Rays which is GREAT! but my son is interested in something visually appealing. I read that miquon is a good mastery program for beginners. it seems to be a good fit,
Alexander B on Dec 4, 2017
Excellent math book.
Miriam W on Nov 27, 2017
After doing quite a bit of research on math curriculums for our first year of homeschool, I decided on Miquon based on reviews, their education philosophy and price. I'm hoping it's a fit for our family!
Mariel B on Nov 11, 2017
Have used this series with multiple children and never tire of it. Intuitive and thoughtful foundation that encourages kids to think.

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.

What level to start?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've always started with the orange book in first grade. It's designed to use 2 books a year, so first graders get the orange and red books, second grade is blue and green, and third grade finishes up with yellow and purple. I've used them with all 8 of my children and they work great. I also use Cuisenaire rods as manipulatives along with the books.
