The Kumon Maths programme develops quick, precise calculation skills necessary for the study of high school mathematics. Only topics essential for high school mathematics are included. They include number recognition, counting and writing; the four basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; fractions and decimals; algebra, equations, functions and calculus.
Each worksheet builds on what has come before and prepares students for what comes next. Students progress step by step, towards the goal of advanced high school mathematics.
The Kumon English worksheets develop a high level of reading comprehension ability. To inspire students to read widely, the worksheets contain more extracts from published texts than any other reading programme in the world.
They are arranged in order of increasing difficulty, from the simplest to the most complex. Audio files support the student’s progress, as do Kumon’s recommended reading lists.
The Pencil Skills Programme is a supplementary programme that supports the development of students’ ability to control a pencil.
Pencil Skills includes the ability to hold a pencil securely and correctly, to use consistent writing pressure, to control the start and end of lines, to draw straight lines, to draw curved lines and to draw lines within narrow spaces.
The worksheets are intended to be fun and to be studied by preschoolers. The Pencil Skills Programme consists of two levels, ZI and ZII, with 100 worksheets in each level.
Therefore, the Pencil Skills programme is usually studied as a prelude to Kumon Maths and/or Kumon English. Acquiring Pencil Skills supports the smooth development of students’ progress in their main Kumon Maths and/or English programme.
