Algebra by 4th grade: an expectation in Kumon

In Kumon there is an expectation that students reach level G by 4th grade. Level G in Kumon Math is considered beginning Algebra in Oregon. Reaching G level means that students have mastered the foundations of math including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals and order of operations. Using this mastery, they go into algebra levels with the mental calculation abilities to do algebra without a calculator. Students who reach G by 4 are at the top of their math class and are on their way to obtaining the next Kumon expectation of J by 6 which is reaching Calculus by 6th grade.

The Kumon center of South Beaverton had six students obtain the honor of meeting G by 4 this summer: Anika K., Abrar A., Jefferson L., Rachel L., Finley W. and Max W.

Pictured is Max and Finley who are twins that obtained G by 4 this summer. Their family and the Kumon center of South Beaverton are so proud of their achievement and hard work!
