Miquon Homeschool Math Review

Independent work! Hands-on learning! Use at your student's own pace! Affordable homeschool math materials for grades 1-3.


We bought the six children's "lab books" and the three teacher's books because we received a TON of math manipulatives from a retired teacher and wanted to make use of them. Miquon offers many opportunities to use Cuisenaire rods, counters, etc.

We've used it for one learner, first through third grade, and recently bought just the student books for our next learner, who will begin using them next year. The student workbooks are extremely affordable ($5.75-$7.50 each). The only teacher book we have really referred to on a regular basis is called "Lab Sheet Annotations." The other two may be superfluous.

Each student book is for 1/2 of a grade level. Each book includes all four operations (+, -, x, division)--a nice intro for learners to all four from the start-- and each subsequent book builds upon the previous. One or two worksheet pages a day keep the student on the 1/2 year schedule, but our second grader did the two first grade books in about six weeks as a refresher. She has consistently tested above grade level in math after using Miquon materials.

The learner can work mostly independently and the parent helps only if asked, although I check my learner's work daily. I highly recommend this homeschool math course for its affordability. The main expense would be for a set of Cuisenaire rods, which can be used in many other ways and by all your learners--well worth the investment.

Great review Chanin! Thanks so much for sharing why you like Miquon for homeschool math and how it's working with your children. The details you provide are very helpful. Blessings, Heather :)

Inexpensive Homeschooling Math Supplementals: "Key to" Series

by Tessa
(US)


Money-saving mom shares an inexpensive homeschooling math resource for struggling homeschool students...

The whole "Key To" series is a great inexpensive homeschooling math supplement for students that are struggling with Math.

Both of my teenagers have used the Key to series to brush up on their basic Math skills. The books are instructional enough that they can complete most of the exercises independently. And for students that struggle with Math, the workbooks are great because the lessons aren't so long that students get frustrated.

I recommend this series to any students that need Math supplementation in fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, measurements, metric measurement, or algebra.

Thanks for recommending these inexpensive homeschooling math workbooks to others - what a great resource! I think other parents who have struggling students will find your input very helpful. Blessings, Heather

One other helpful tip... Key Curriculum Press (keypress.com) offers an online assessment tool that goes along with this series. Its called the Key to Tracker and its only $5.95 for a one-year individual subscription. Although I have never used it, this online software program could be a helpful assessment and tracking solution for families who need the additional help. Worth a look!

Key to Fractions from Key Curriculum Press

Affordable Homeschool Math Resource

Affordable Homeschool Math Resource

Homeschooling mom shares an affordable and easy-to-use homeschool math resource for students struggling with fractions...

I found Key to Fractions from Key Curriculum Press to be an excellent addition to my regular homeschool math curriculum. My son was struggling with the concept of adding and subtracting fractions, and these books take them thru a step-by-step process that is at the student's level.

Key to Fractions is very easy for them to understand, and each step builds on the previous lesson, with plenty of repetitive practice. My son loved them and would often work on his math problems during his own free time. Key curriculum has other series available for decimals, percents, and Algebra, and I will definitely use those as well.

Love it! Thanks for sharing this homeschool math resource, Pam! I appreciate the time you took to help others. Blessings, Heather :)
