Category Description for Miquon Math Labs:

Math is not just numbers! Using Cuisenaire rods, Miquon Math Labs allows children to model numbers and operations concretely. It uses a hands-on, pattern-building, discovery method that fosters independence and creativity in problem solving. The unique page-numbering format of the program allows for flexibility - use each book straight through, covering a variety of topics, or use only the pages in each book relating to a specific topic (easily identified by the alpha-numeric page numbering system).

Instead of holding off on more difficult math topics until later grades, the Miquon approach is unique in teaching all four basic math operations in Grade 1 - plus fractions, clock arithmetic, area, volume and factoring. This builds confidence in children as they see how the basic operations are intterrelated and takes the "mystery" out of these otherwise-delayed topics. By Grade 3, 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, to teach borrowing and carrying for a problem like 400 - 298 or to teach the the child to restate the problem as 398 - 298 + 2 or 400 - 300 + 2? Techniques like these really help to develop mental dexterity in problme solving. After using Miquon with our seven children, we can attest that this program has promoted flexibility in problem solving and teaches them to find the best technique for the situation. Ours students now tackle new or difficult problems creatively, even fearlessly!

Altogether, the six student workbooks contain over 650 lab sheets. Concepts covered include: counting, odd-even, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, equalities, place value, number line and functions, factoring, squaring, simultaneous equations, graphing equations, geometric recognition, length, area, volume, series and progressions, grid and arrow games, mapping, clock arithmetic, sets, and word problems.

We recommend purchasing the Lab Sheet Annotations. This is the teacher's guide for all six workbooks. Because the approach taken in the program is so different, it explains the reasoning behind the presentation and provides several suggestions on how to present each topic. It also provides preliminary activities for a concrete understanding of the math concepts as well as more detailed explanations for many of the workbook pages. 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 Miquon student - then you'll have a completed key to use with the next!

The Miquon Math program would be an excellent start in math to move into any other program, but it would lend itself particularly well to those intending to use the Singapore approach to math in the future.




Category Description for Miquon Math Grade 1:

Math is not just numbers! Using Cuisenaire rods, Miquon Math Labs allows children to model numbers and operations concretely. It uses a hands-on, pattern-building, 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 otherwise-delayed 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!

Love Miquon Math! I think this is a highly underutilized Math curriculum! I'll admit that when using it with my first I didn't totally understand or "trust" it, but with my second it all clicked and I appreciate the great math foundation it has given him (he is almost done with the last book) -- particularly as it encourages him to think and play and figure stuff out! Getting another copy for my daughter and looking forward to using it with her!

We've used this book for one of our children and now need to reorder for another child.

I find the math book we are currently using inadequate. This series came highly recommended by a fellow homeschooling mother.

We are a Miquon family. This curriculum has worked for my 2 sons, and now my daughter is also thriving on it. I've already started my 4th child, a preschooler with the Cuisenaire Alphabet book in preparation for the Orange Book. Love this set!
User on Mar 20, 2017
I love this simple yet brillant math curriculum. Its self teaching and kids can figure out math on their own.

We use Miquon for our boys until they are far enough along to do Beast Academy. With this combo out kids are excelling in math and loving it.

Using Level 1 and want to go by subject rather than following the given sequence.
Alice M on Oct 19, 2016
We got the orange book and my son loves it. I didn't realize that you could do the books kind of together. There are certainly some topics my son likes more than others so I want to make sure we have the pages he will need to keep plugging away at his own pace. :) I hope to put all the sheets in one big binder. :)

It goes very fast through all basic operations. My older children had a really good grasps of the subject by the time they were done.

all Miquon products in the order were purchased for our daughters to have fun learning math at home
John S on Feb 23, 2016
I chose this 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
I love helping my kids through the Miquon books. They love being able to choose what topic to work on as you don't have to work through them in order. I love that it uses manipulatives and encourages a full development of number sense and multiple ways of thinking about arithmetic and basic geometry. Students using Miquon develop a strong basis for any future math program. However as the parent you need to be somewhat confident in your ability to help them.

Miquon Math has been great for my kids
Miquon Math has been great for my kids! I was looking for something with cuisenair rods and that wasn't too work bookish. I love the flexibility and progression of Miquon Math. I have the set of lab books and the Teacher Annotations. I homeschool my kids and live on a farm, so they get a lot of math from life too. I also have a bunch of other manipulatives. Math is very hands-on at our house.

Excellent and reasonably priced
This is the 5th child we've used Miquon Math for. We are very satisfied. Our older kids have jumped into Singapore books for Middle School and are doing well.
