Jamila Begum, Muhammad Maqsood Alam Bukhari, Aisha Akbar


The experimental study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of
Kumon method in comparison with traditional lecture method in the
teaching of Mathematics to grade-5. Kumon is a math and reading
enrichment program, which provides practice and instruction to each
individual. This helps to think and work independently. The hypothesis
of this study was that in Mathematics, Grade-5 students have no
significant difference in their academic achievement treated by Kumon
method and by traditional lecture method. The objective of the study was
to determine the effectiveness of Kumon method for academic
achievement of children in Mathematics. All grade-5 students of Fazaia
inter colleges of Rawalpindi and Islamabad was the population. Cluster
sampling technique was used. One of the three Fazaia colleges (junior
section) was selected randomly. All grade-5 students of the selected
cluster formed the sample of the study. Data was collected and analyzed
by applying t-test and recommendations were given on the basis of
findings of the study. This study shows that Kumon method is more
effective for teaching mathematics to Grade 5 students in comparison
with traditional lecture method and equally helpful in teaching
mathematics effectively to boys and girls.
