Marginalizing Kumon

Well, I'll at least Marginalize the professionalism of their new Geometry books.

Look how poorly those questions are phrased. I had to read the questions three times before my brain could process them. So how the heck is a 4th grader going to comprehend them?

Kumon may be an Asian brand. But if they are going to sell books over here perhaps they ought to have at least one person fluent in English edit their content - and add in the missing articles and prepositional phrases.

For example:

"3/5 OF A meter"!

Otherwise the books are great. See also - What'll We Do Next Year?
