The present work gathers an educational experience based on the application of the personalized Kumon Mathematics Method, carried out in the school year 2015-2016, in which 30,849 students and 230 teachers from several educational centers throughout Spain have participated. We start with a theoretical foundation of the Kumon Method and continue with a description of the research methodology used. The empirical analysis carried out has been both in descriptive and correlational terms, using Spearman's Rho statistic, between the levels at which the students of the sample have started and the Kumon level reached. The results show that the sooner students begin to learn Mathematics with the Kumon Method, the greater the chance of reaching a level of knowledge above their school level, which helps us to demonstrate the potential of this method in the teaching and learning process of Mathematics in the educational levels of Early Childhood and Primary Education.

Local convergence and a chemical application of derivative free root finding methods with one parameter based on interpolation Argyros, Ioannis K; Magreñán, Á. Alberto (1); Orcos, Lara (1) (Journal of Mathematical Chemistry, 08/2016)We present a local convergence analysis of a derivative free fourth order method with one parameter based on rational interpolation in order to approximate a locally unique root of a function. The method is optimal in the ...
