Sharjah: Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Future Leaders and Innovators, in cooperation with ‘Kumon Institute of Education Co. Ltd. Japan,’ is set to launch the ‘Kumon’ mathematics program in October 2023. The program, which will continue until March 2024, comes as part of the Foundation’s objectives to boost the capabilities of future generations in the fields of science and mathematics.
The program focuses on children and youth from the ages of 9 to 14 years old, where the participants will learn the basics of counting, number operations, and algebra using the ‘Kumon’ self-learning method as well as complete multiple levels in an environment that stimulates creativity and problem-solving.
The program will be executed by trained instructors in order to equip the participants with the necessary skills to develop their ability to solve mathematical problems and find creative solutions. In addition, the participants will be going through an impactful journey that will encourage them to be independent learners, which will also result in a positive change in their study habits and their self-confidence.
Mr. Takashi Uemura, General Manager of Kumon Institute in Abu Dhabi, remarked that “the Kumon Method is a learning method that not only improves children’s academic performance but also provides individualized learning at a level just right for everyone, fostering study habits and a self-study attitude, and has been used by more than 3.5 million students in over 60 countries and areas worldwide. It is our great pleasure and honor to launch Kumon learning for the first time in the emirate of Sharjah and to contribute to the development of the children of Sharjah.”
