To develop strong calculation skills in order to enable children to self-study high school mathematics with ease.

This was the goal that Toru Kumon, the Kumon Method founder, made when he started to develop the Kumon Math worksheets for his son, Takeshi. He discovered that Takeshi’s school workbooks contained a wide range of topics with some of them not necessarily addressing the need to develop calculation skills. This is why the Kumon Math worksheets do not contain all the math topics that your child is studying in school.

Toru Kumon then believed that what was possible for one child could also be possible for more, if not all, children. Thus, he set out to offer the same learning materials  to as many children as possible. This was the start of the Kumon Method.
