Category Description for Kumon Math Workbooks
A math program based on the Kumon method. Basically, the earmarks of this system are:
The series is meant to be selfdirected. Students take charge of their own learning on every level. They complete pages, check their work, record their scores, and determine whether to move on or review. The pace almost guarantees success. Children should work a “few” pages a day; assignments should take about 20 minutes to complete. Pages are marked with the skill level required at top and the points each question is valued at (a very young child will need some help totaling points). Very short instruction (or an example) is given on a few pages. For example, there is a short explanation when children begin to subtract a 2digit number from a 3digit number where borrowing is needed. However, the child is given every opportunity to intuit this beforehand. By the time he reaches this page, he has already been subtracting doubledigit numbers for many pages. Some of these would require borrowing, but, since they are able to subtract, say, 7 from 12, the Kumon method wants the child to see a pattern when increasing to 7 from 22, 7 from 32, etc. This does remind me of the approach used in Miquon as well. Besides these very infrequent helps there are just some small prompts for children to look for patterns in their answers, and words of encouragement. Pages are pleasing to the eye; they are colored, clean, and problems are wellspaced. The Kumon method has been used successfully with children around the world for over 50 years. It does seem like it would help a child to take charge of his own learning and help himself to understanding rather than being spoonfed each bite. For Kumon math earlier than Grade 1, see the Kumon section in Early Learning.
Customer Review
Do I love Kumon workbooks? Yes. Are they for you? Only you can decide. All the math books are 1 subject only. Therefore, if your child enjoys repetition, then they will like these a lot. If your child is easily bored and likes to have things changed up, these books might not be a good fit. For instance, in the 1st grade addition book, there are 28 pages in the beginning just for writing numbers, followed by 12 pages of adding by 1. My 1st grader loves math, but was not interested in filling out all those pages because she already understood the concepts quite well. So we skipped most of them. For a child who needs practice or enjoys filling out a page of things he or she knows really well, those pages will be great. I think these books have the potential to be both useful and enjoyable, as long as mom doesn't feel the need to have the child do EVERY page. Otherwise, a child might end up having to do a LOT of unnecessary repetition. If you are a fan of the Kumon preschool workbooks, do be aware that the gradelevel math books contain FAR fewer graphics, and are MUCH less visually motivating/ engaging. That is not an issue for us, but it was surprising to me. My children enjoy having several manipulatives available to keep the work interesting, and we do use other math books as well, but I am pleased with my purchase of these books. The price is very reasonable for the highquality paper they are printed on.
