FAQ

Are the materials covered in Kumon different from what has been taught in school?
The aim of Kumon Math Program is to develop strong mental calculation skills so that children can self-learn high school mathematics.

Kumon covers only the important materials that are needed to self-learn high school mathematics. That’s why our curriculum is more effective than the school curriculum in general. However, the ways to solve problems are in line with what have been taught in school.
