Miquon Math
Homeschool Math Curriculum

Miquon Math is one of the best tools to teach younger students how to think mathematically. Miquon teaches all four arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) beginning the first year, and even introduces algebraic notation, geometry, and diagram-reading in the first book.

The program emphasizes mathematical patterns and relationships rather than pre-set formulas and methods. It uses Cuisenaire® Rods* and a unique graphic layout to help children discover mathematical patterns and relationships with just a bit of guidance from their teachers as necessary.

Parents often choose Miquon as a fun supplement, though some use it as the main math program in the early elementary years. These homeschool math books cover all the standard subjects and more. When students finish the last book in the series, most students are well-prepared for the 4th- or 5th year books in other programs.

*Cuisenaire Rods are rectangular plastic rods that vary from one unit (a cube) to ten units in length. Each length comes in a specific color (the one-unit length is always white; the two-unit length, red; etc.). By manipulating the Rods, children are able to "see," in a neutral, physical form, what happens on the theoretical level when they add, subtract, multiply and divide. For instance, if we place the red rod (2) and the purple rod (4) end-to-end, we find they are equal in length to the dark green rod (6): we SEE that 2+4=6.
