Concrete, Hands On Math
For 30 years, the Miquon Math Materials have offered children a friendly invitation to the world of mathematics. Based on the belief that mathematical insight grows out of observation, investigation, and the discovery of patterns, the six workbooks of the Miquon Math Materials lead children through an exploration of mathematical relationships. Concrete models (Especially Cuisenaire Rods) are not supplements to the written work but instead are the basis of it and are used continuously.

Fast Paced Without Tedious Drill
Miquon Math introduces all four arithmetic operations and work with fractions in the first year. By the third year, students are graphing algebraic equations. Miquon Math gives children the basic tools early so that they can be independent problem solvers from the first day of school. Experiences in building models for concepts precede and prepare children for all written work.

The Perfect Cuisenaire Rods Curriculum
Cuisenaire Rods support materials (available separately) can be great supplements but do not provide a complete year's curriculum. If you have seen the benefits of Cuisenaire Rods as a visual/manipulative aid and would like them to be naturally incorporated into a comprehensive math program, this is the curriculum for you.

Written For First-Third Grade, Now Considered Sixth Grade
Cuisenaire Rods are the basis of and are used throughout Miquon Math. Originally utilized in the 1960's for first through third grades, however because of the dumbing down of most texts and national tests, in many ways Miquon covers what are now considered 5th and 6th grade topics. Miquon remains one of our favorites for teaching elementary math because of price, scope and sequence, and most importantly, the skills taught.

Do You Need The Manual?
Please note that the Miquon books do not include instructions or answers. The Miquon Lab Sheet Annotations explains the objectives of all the workbooks. If your are fairly capable at using Cuisenaire Rods you can do without it, though you will have to skip a few workbook pages where the procedures can't be intuited. However, so many moms have found themselves putting in a rush order for this book, that we hesitate to say you will not need it.

My son loves these books November 5, 2008
Reviewer: Rebecca L. from Lehi, Utah  
My last son just started on these books and he loves them.  Even on non-school days he wants to do his math.  My other sons liked this program fairly well.  They weren't as excited about it as my youngest son but they liked it better than some of the other programs we tried. I have even learned some new things from the Lab Sheet Annotations!

Need to be strong in math to use... November 5, 2008
Reviewer: Jennifer from Ragley, LA  
This is only the second math program that we have tried.  We have enjoyed Miquon much better than the other program that we tried.  But your family would need to be strong in math to really enjoy it.

Miquon gave him a good start. November 5, 2008
Reviewer: Shabnam Pl. from Chattanooga, TN  
Miquon is a simple but thorough math program for grades 1-3. There is not a lot of repetition; so, if your child easily grasps mathematical concepts, this program moves along fast and keeps math interesting. My son went to Saxon 76 in 4th grade after completing the Miquon series.  My son is now in the 8th grade and still loves and excels in math.  Miquon gave him a good start.

Fun and easy to use!! November 4, 2008
Reviewer: Jasmine C. from San Jose, CA  
Miquon Math is fun and easy to use.  It teaches math concepts very systematically and in small bite increments.  My child hardly needs me to guide him at all. All three children, 5, 7, and 10yr old look forward to doing their Miquon Math and I am pleased with their progress.

We love the Miquon Math series. October 18, 2008
Reviewer: Stephanie A. from Ona, WV  
We love the Miquon Math series. My fifth grader used this and is now using the Key to Series. My first grader is currently using the program. I love the use of manipulative and how many operations (+, -, x,/) and fractions are included throughout the text. This is a great program for students who like to figure things out for themselves and do it on their own.   The biggest drawback I've experienced is that sometimes the pages "jump ahead" quickly from say single digit work to double digit work. My very math minded son had no trouble with this, but my not so math minded daughter sometimes gets stuck at these jumps. Sometimes we just skip it and move on. Other times I help her through it.
