Great manipulative based program!
I am very impressed with this program! Cuisenaire rods are used as a manipulative which really helps my little one to quickly grasp the concepts. It does take some studying on the parent's part to learn the format of the books as no direct instructions are given.

Love these books
Miquon is like a beautiful breath of fresh air in the Math world. I love the way it teaches math and encourages math exploration so that the child can figure out the concept mostly on their own. I love the use of cuisenaire rods to help the child physically see the concept/answer so it isn't just an abstract concept. I would highly recommend this program to everyone! I would also say it's more K-3 rather than 1-3. There are many sheets that Kindergartners can explore and learn with.

Makes math fun and easy!
We have a large family and I'm always spinning lots of plates at the same time! We used Miquon Math for our older children and had dropped it for years. The younger children did
ok in the primer book of the other program, but one entire year
Devoted to nothing but addition was way too slow of a pace and they just sort of
Shut down mathematically. After much prayer about what to do about math, I remembered Miquon and how the cuisenaire rods just make math concepts so obvious! I immediately ordered
the whole set plus the Lab Sheet Annotations! As soon as the books arrived we dove right in. I put my 8 yr old boy and 11 year old girl in The Orange Book! They're flying through it and I have no doubt they will be caught up to grade level in time!
I love how the books quickly move from adding to subtraction and make a fun transition into multiplication. The Lab Sheet Annotations give great instruction for preliminary activities as well as games to make each concept fun. The number lines are extremely helpful as well. My 11 yr old is behind in Math and hadn't even had any fractions yet because of the slow pace of the other program! Miquon makes fractions so easy!
The very first book has everything from counting, addition, subtraction, fractions, measurements, telling time, even multiplying fractions! If you like or need drill, there's lots of printables on the internet, you won't find much in the books. But if the children get it, no need for lots of drill!
After book 6, The Purple Book, the Keys to Math Program is what you will use for 4-12 grades.
Both programs are economical, which is another plus.
This math is not for those that love textbooks, but for families that are more relaxed. We are so glad we switched back!

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 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)

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 chose Miquon to use along with Singapore math with my kindergartner and Preschoolers. I like the tactile-kinesthetic approach to concept development that Miquon offers.

Two of my children are behind in math and need to continue through the summer. I thought this curriculum would strengthen their existing skills by presenting concepts in a different format. It will also give us a break from their regular curriculum, and I'm hoping that using the blocks will seem a little less like doing school over the summer.

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.

What manipulatives do you need to purchase?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=024116

Connecting Cuisenaire Rods Small Group Set - 155 Plastic Rods
Buy two sets if you can
What do you use after Miquon Math (4th grade+)?
A shopper on May 4, 2017
Miquon Book Set - 6 Workbooks + Annotations
Miquon Book Set - 6 Workbooks + Annotations
Miquon Blue Book Level 3
Miquon Blue Book Level 3
Miquon Set of all 6 Student Workbooks
Miquon Set of all 6 Student Workbooks
Miquon Purple Book Level 6
Miquon Purple Book Level 6
BEST ANSWER: Here are several to consider. 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".
Are the books consumable? Would this set be able to be used through multiple children or would each child need his own set?
User on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are meant to be consumable. You could photocopy the pages. They are perforated. I tore them all out of the workbooks and organized them in a 3 inch binder with a-z dividers and we use them with page protectors and wipe off markers.
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.

    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.

    I heard it was good for creative-type thinkers who abhor repetition....this is my daughter.

    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 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.

    Lisa M on Feb 5, 2016
    looked like fun.

    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!
    Rosamaria R on Jan 4, 2016
    Two of my children are behind in math and need to continue through the summer. I thought this curriculum would strengthen their existing skills by presenting concepts in a different format. It will also give us a break from their regular curriculum, and I'm hoping that using the blocks will seem a little less like doing school over the summer.
    Stacy S on May 28, 2018
    Seems like a compatible supplement to Math-u-see and the Math in Classical Conversations. Wanted additional practice as well as a supplement that focused more on the understanding of the concepts in math.

    BEST ANSWER: Here are several to consider. 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".
    Are the books consumable? Would this set be able to be used through multiple children or would each child need his own set?
    User on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They are meant to be consumable. You could photocopy the pages. They are perforated. I tore them all out of the workbooks and organized them in a 3 inch binder with a-z dividers and we use them with page protectors and wipe off markers.
    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.
