Progress in Small Steps

The Kumon worksheets are structured
to foster self-learning

The worksheets have been carefully designed in a way that allows students to figure out how to solve the problems on their own. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when moving into new topic areas, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently at all times.

Students progress smoothly in small steps

Students often encounter difficulties advancing on their own if the gaps between the topics are too wide. Thus, the worksheets have been specially designed to advance in small steps, enabling students to progress smoothly, while learning at the level that is most appropriate for them.

Math Program consists of 4,420 worksheets with 20 levels

The Math Program, for example, consists of 4,420 worksheets with 20 levels starting from Level 6A to Level O and five elective courses. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when students move on to new topics, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently at all times.
