Speaking From Experience
Cathy Duffy says, "...because of unique methods of teaching arithmetic concepts, younger children can begin to learn arithmetic through the hands-on activities, and older children can also benefit from Miquon used as a supplement... It's a hands-on approach that is very strong on development of conceptual understanding."
A homeschool mom said, "Miquon was fun and effective for my very verbal daughter, but I think this program really shines with kids who learn best by doing, as my son does. He is a hands-on learner, and this program is especially good for students like him, for whom verbal explanations of mathematical concepts are difficult to grasp."
