    Kumon Math is a series of books based on a Japanese learning method. Starting at the basics of forming the numbers it continues with a series of skills which build upon an understanding of mathematical concepts. Each books is slightly repetitive, and yet if one uses it as a system (a directed on the website) the child can build a foundation. If used alone, each book can be used as a supplement to other programs to help reinforce concepts learned elsewhere. Kumon is a program that works better for those starting at the beginning as we did with my daughter at 3, but also helps those who are struggling with various aspects (like long division or fractions). It is easily translated into other teaching styles to adjust to the child’s learning ability and style.
    It can become pricey, but I think it is worth it.
