Kumon Worksheets

Five features of the Kumon worksheets

Kumon worksheets enable students to advance through self-learning. In the below infographic, we will demonstrate how this is accomplished. We will use the maths worksheets as an example.


Kumon’s small-step worksheets
enable all students to advance on their own.

The Kumon Maths programme consists of 4,420 worksheets from preschool level material to high school level maths. Kumon worksheets increase marginally in difficulty from worksheet to worksheet in order for each student to advance independently.

Feature 1: Students start with easy problems, then move on.

Students begin Kumon with content that they can complete with ease. By attaining a perfect score on their own, children experience a sense of accomplishment. This increases their motivation to study further.

Feature 2: Students learn how to calculate quickly and accurately.

In order for students to increase their maths ability, they must learn how to calculate quickly and accurately. Therefore, Kumon worksheets contain problems designed to develop quick, precise mental calculation skills.

Feature 3: Students advance with a real sense of how they are improving.

Kumon Instructors decide on the best way for students to advance by tracking their progress. Kumon’s  worksheets, combined with the support of our Instructors enable students to build confidence and make steady progress.

Feature 4: Students think for themselves and correct mistakes on their own.

The process of correcting their own errors on the Kumon worksheets develops students’ ability to think logically. Kumon Instructors guide students to independently identify which parts of their answers are wrong and to correct only those areas.

Feature 5: Students independently learn from the examples

When students study content  they have not yet encountered, they look at the examples and attempt the problems using previously learned knowledge.

Kumon worksheets enable all students to realise their potential.

In addition to the five features mentioned above,  many more features have been incorporated into our small-step worksheets. Every feature is designed to ensure that students develop their self-learning ability.
