3. Small-Step Worksheets

Self-learning is facilitated by Kumon’s constantly evolving small-step worksheets.

Kumon worksheets are laid out in very small steps

Kumon worksheets are laid out in very small steps, enabling each student to advance smoothly from easy to difficult problems and, ultimately, to the study of high school level material.

The international version of the Kumon maths programme consists of 20 levels (from Level 6A to Level O) and five elective levels, making a total of 4,420 double-sided worksheets. All of these worksheets were carefully designed to take students from counting up to advanced maths, with the level of difficulty increasing in small steps. This enables students to steadily move up to higher levels on their own.

Worksheets are revised through learning from students

The current lineup of Kumon worksheets is not the same as it was in the beginning. Originally, there were just approximately 800 worksheets in total and they were all handmade by Toru Kumon for his son Takeshi.

Since then, information such as students’ reactions to the worksheets and feedback from Instructors has been continuously taken into account when revising the worksheets to make them easier for students to do independently.

We will continue learning from children and revising the worksheets in order to make them even more effective for self-learning.
