The Kumon Maths Programme progresses from the very basics of counting to calculus and beyond, all without the use of a calculator.
Each student will begin at a comfortable level for them. Their individual starting point, along with their expected projection rate, is established at a Free Assessment. Once a firm foundation and good study skills have been developed, students move on to unfamiliar, more challenging work as they grow their independent learning skills.
Through daily study of this worksheet-based programme, students develop an affinity for mental maths and the confidence to apply a range of skills when faced with a new challenge. Each level of the maths programme builds incrementally on the skills developed in the previous level, ensuring a solid understanding and the ability to put learning into practice.
At Kumon we place great importance on children understanding how a calculation works and therefore their ability to select the most efficient approach to solve a problem. This is achieved through individualised instruction and the use of traditional methods, enabling students to develop their mental agility and maximise their ability.
Additionally, we offer worksheets with colourful pictures to help early learners develop pencil control skills.
