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 3:

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!

This is a great curriculum for beginning math. The concrete way subjects are presented takes the intimidation out of it for young learners (and teachers!).

I've used the Miquon books in conjunction with Singapore Math for several of my children, and I love how they complement each other. I don't try to match up the subjects between curriculums, we just work our way through both at the same time. I highly recommend Miquon!

Bonnie J on Mar 17, 2017
love this ash series - continuing books
Elizabeth M on Mar 10, 2017
Miquon Math has provided the foundation for all four of my children's math education. It involves little help from the teacher and encourages thinking skills.
Robin G on Jan 4, 2017
I'm using level 3 for my first grader, and I like the hands-on quality of the math worksheets, so I wanted to get the same kind of math program for my daughter, who's in 3rd grade.

Why are there different levels in Miquon Math? Are they grade related?
Eng on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are grade related. I have read that when the series was first published, the 6 books were designed to cover grades 1-3 using 2 books per year. Some today believe they are more suited to grades 3-6. I have personally used the books for my children in grades 3 and 4, using 3 Miquon books per grade-year. Miquon builds upon itself and has a unique way of presenting concepts. I would start with level 1, even though it may seem too easy. Review is always good for students, and that way they can grasp Miquon's methods easier. I also purchased the Teacher Book and have been very glad that I did.
