5.0 out of 5 stars The best homeschoolers "first math" around, September 14, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Miquon Math Lab Materials: Orange Book Level 1 (Paperback)
Using a hands on manipulative method of teaching math using cuisanare rods instead of dry, rote memorization makes this math the most fun for kids, even for those who "hate" math. It is colorful, and lets kids find for themselves the basic relationships and principles of math. Using the 6 books in the system, ( two books a year for three years) by the end of the third grade(sixth book), your child will be doing simple algebra without even knowing it. I love this system, and all of the other math materials from Key Curriculum. Just be sure to buy the cuisenare rods to go with the system. I homeschooled my kids on this system, then moved right into saxon math series. It is the only math system I would ever use in the primary grades.

I'm wondering if your children were able to get enough practice memorizing their facts through this curriculum, or if you had to supplement (and if so, with what)? I am having trouble finding something that will help my children to be proficient at quickly recalling facts! Thanks!
