By reviewing parallel and perpendicular lines as well as area, perimeter, and volume, your child can confidently progress to more advanced geometry and measurement concepts. Our activities proceed gradually, so your child will solve coordinate geometry problems we ease.
- Compare and order whole numbers, fractions, and decimals on a number line
- Understand and apply concepts of lines and angles (e.g. parallel and perpendicular)
- Identify polygons
- Understand the relationship of the circumference of a circle, its diameter, and pi (tt ~ 3.14 )
- Measure and find the area and the perimeter of two-dimensional shapes using formulae.
- Measure and find the volumes of cubes and rectangular prisms using formulae.
- Coordinate Geometry
- Convert measurement units within a system

Well written but didn’t match grade level difficultyThe layout is easy to understand but it’s very easy for grade 5 covering the basics of geometry. I was getting it for my 4th grader but many of the concepts they have already covered in class. I wished there was a way to see more images if inside of the to help us determine appropriate level.We always like the Kumon book layout, colorful with expert tips along the sides to explain a new concept. I wished the answered had more explanation so it would still require parent instruction if geometry is new to the child.

Great book for geometry intro!Super nice book. I was surprised to have many pages in the beginning review decimals so much, but, hey, why not!! Once we got to the geometry parts, it was laid out in a great way, not too much at once, not repetitive and very understandable for my son. It’s a summer book for us and he will finish before November.
NiceThe book came very quickly. I bought this to help my child get a headstart on Geometry for next year. I like the Kumon books because they teach in steps and build on what you have learned. Would buy more in the kumon series.
Great workbook still need extra lessonsI home school my 11 year old daughter. After trying several different math lessons online and workbooks we are really liking the Kumon workbooks. The are really great as in taking step by step. My mom issue is if you as a teacher do not know how to do it the ONE example doesn’t really clarify how it’s done. I have had to go searching online for some lessons. But my daughter likes it and she rotates during the week with all 3 #5 books. Learning math. 🙂

Kumon Math is Awesome!I wanted my fifth grader to practice some geometry principles. This book makes it easy for him to get additional practice outside the classroom. Over the years we have used other math programs but we always come back to Kumon. Kumon seems to have just the right amount of practice to help the child learn the concepts without becoming boring. Another wonderful thing is that the book teaches the child the information. Now my son can learn at his own pace and I can review his work as needed. I love Kumon!
Good bookKimono books are good practice books for kids

Great as UsualThis workbook is up to Kumon standards as usual. It’s easy to understand and follow through the lessons. I’m a homeschool mom so need lessons that are quick & easy & challenging. Great as extra practice , if other than homeschooled , or as a main curriculum.
Great books!Great books!

Product arrived on time but was also as described. …Product arrived on time but was also as described. Should have more online links to related videos and/or audio. Thanks.
ExcellentNothing but good things to say about this book. Challenging with enough repetition to help the student remember important concepts.
Very helpfulAll of these KUMON wookbooks are very helpful for my fifth grader. In fact, I got all of the math-related workbooks for the grade. We started using them last year to review problematic areas at school and provide enrichment in the areas where he excels. The pace of the work is perfect.
This is good because the easy part gives him confidenceMy 9 yr old boy is able to do about half of the book and the other half is providing a challenge for him. This is good because the easy part gives him confidence, but it is not too easy.
Four Starsbought this math workbook for my granddaughter who needed some extra help in her math. Very useful
Good coverage and practicei bought this book for my 5th grader over the summer as a practice review book. He forgets some concepts taught in the class and this book provides good review and practice
Wonderful Math bookProduct was great for study

Four StarsGood book…
too simpleMy third grader went through it in one day. It is too simple. I hope it can have more genius questions rather than all basic ones.

ConfusingDespite the cover page indicating this is designed for children to completed by themselves, I strongly advise against it. Sit down with them and be available. I would love to recommend this for homeschooling and as a review for older kids, however because it lacks adequate instruction at best this is not a good workbook for review, unless you prepare for the frustration you are about to engage in.We are using this (and other Kumon books) as a review and as an introduction to a solid course for older homeschoolers. We are completing these workbooks at a faster pace then how it is intended. We had no issues with Grade 4 in the same series. The illustrations in that workbook help you figure out what is going on and how that relates and is applied to measurement. The lack of in-depth instructions didn’t phase us until Grade 5’s workbook, which has 7 sections relating to decimal and fractions which offer (1) no (or sparse) explanation of how to work the problems and (2) adds to the confusion because it doesn’t take the time to show the relationship of decimals tenths and hundredths to the number line for a solid understanding. No problem. Regardless of skill or familiarity level, be prepared to struggle through and pull up a video to help your student gain confidence. Only someone who has recently been taught these concepts in full, will be able to fly through this. The rest of us have Youtube.Be aware that the concepts presented to your student in this workbook immediately jumps into how many tenths and hundredths there are based on the number place value system… and it is only after the fact there is a small box showing the place value system for tenth, hundredths, and thousandths. If this is the first time your student has seen this version of place value, they might be able to guess the pattern but won’t necessarily understand or gain confidence on what is going or what its importance is with just this material. After several of these lessons attempting to build up up to an understanding there is then 2 pages (lesson 8, pg16-17) offering a relatable measurement exercise. The following two lessons switch to fractions making a very weak tie back to decimals. This was a missed opportunity to show the material in lesson 8 as it would relate to fractions, in some way tying it all together to a shared measurement, before jumping into the remaining geometry lessons.Good Luck

Not worth your time or money.Honestly this is the worst math book I have purchased. It does not explain to the student HOW to actually do the problems. If my child knew how to do it we would not have to purchase a workbook on it…

A good brain exercise bookThis is a very good skill for my kid during the summer vacation. It’s going to benefit anyone before the next level.
Five StarsVery good and on time

Five StarsLooks like a good extra practice book for my 5th grader.
Five StarsGreat for the kid that hates math. It’s one concept at a time and plenty of practice.
Very helpfulI have been using Kumon work-books to teach at home and they are certainly helpful.
Great.As expected. Great.
Five StarsAwesome material.
Five StarsThis was a great teaching tool!
Confusing.First off, I am a math teacher. The exercises are confusing for students. Instead of a logical progression of ideas, the book is all over the place with complicated and unnecessarily vague instructions. Find something else.

If a book ever desered a 3 star rating, this book is it.I tend to agree with the person who gave this book one star, but I don’t think it is that bad. This book covers all of the topics that are not addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The book covers odd and even, decimals, perpendicular and parallel lines, quadrilaterals, angles, polygons, congruent figures, axial symmetry, rotational symmetry, area, and volume. The problem is that the book assumes the student already knows about different types of triangles and the rules of angles, so there are no instructions in this area. But then the book reviews odd and even numbers, when most kids learn about even and odd numbers in K and 1st grade. And the problems are confusing “3.2 is the number you get from adding ___ tenths.” My son’s response, “Adding to what?”. On page 2 there is a diagram that is supposed to show that 10cm is the diameter of the larger circle (according to the directions), but the picture looks as though 10 cm is the measurement of the smaller circle. My son and I joke that the author really drank the Common core Kool-Aid in writing this book, because that is what some of the questions in this book remind me of … the convoluted common core questions. But I will say that if a person did the geometry series from the beginning, they may not be as confused. We started at the 5th grade book. That is one major problem with the Geometry series. There is no Kumon book on just plain Geometry and measurement. There are length, width, and volume books, but they are at the 2nd grade level, not the 5th grade level. With the other Kumon Books, a 5th grader can jump into any of the books, read the simple instructions, and be on their way. That is not true with the Geometry and measurement series. If a student does not have other resources or used the previous books, they will be lost from page 1. Space is wasted on material that is covered in detail in other books (decimals and fractions), but material that should be in the book, actual review of geometry topics is not in the book. That is why my final recommendation is a 3, because it is not clear cut if the book is a good book or not a good book. It is a book that you would really need to visit the book store to see if it is a good match for your student.

Asian WayIt doesn’t teach you how to do it so don’t expect that this book will teach your kids.It is for practice.I’m korean and I did Kumon when I was little. This is what Asian kids do after school. They do it over and over and over…..My 4 kids have 3 categories at least and do them as homework. This is the way I studied so I am familiar with it.I hate other kinds something like “Grad 5 Math book” because they just try to cover every field in one book so there is no depth.

These are wonderful for that extra boost that kids sometimes needThese are wonderful for that extra boost that kids sometimes need. My son has finished almost all of them. I use them as extra practice and a reward program, every chapter he finishes he gets 30 minutes xbox time. At first he was reluctant but as his grades began to rise and he got all the time in Xbox for his hard work, it quickly became a win win.
Good for accuracy practiceGood practice workbook
I like thisI like this book! Second time to buy it. I bought it for my son before. Now this one is for my daughter. Helpful for home practicing. If you want your kids keep busy at home, please don’t miss it!
A lot exercises and cover the curriculumThere are a lot of exercise to practice my sonHe solves one unit every dayHis math is ahead of his classThank you Kumon

Kids love this bookA very great series but not having enough pages is a concern.
A good productA great product overall. Very good material in it.
Awesome bookThese Kumon books are really helpful for students
Nice book for geometryI wish these books gave more of an explanation in how to do the problems. Other than that it is a great workbook.

Great for the summer and extra practiceAs a homeschool mom I bought this to supplement Singapore Math (a popular homeschool math program). It did the trick but it is was nothing special. It’s just extra practice. Great for the summer and extra practice. Follow my other product reviews of Products for Busy Mothers at […]

A very good barometer to measure your child’s comprehension of the subject …Can’t underestimate the importance of having standards. These products provide a baseline to see as to whether or not your child is on the right track. Unfortunately, most schools don’t track this very carefully anymore. A very good barometer to measure your child’s comprehension of the subject matter.
Excelente!Recomendo para crianças em regime de educação domiciliar e também para as crianças que frequentam escolas (públicas ou privadas), uma vez que, por influência dos iluminados do MEC, a matemática já não é tão exata assim, sendo necessário explicá-la levando-se em consideração uma visão geral do mundo e das práticas sociais. 🙁 (Se professores competentes não entendem, imaginem os alunos).AJUDEM VOSSOS FILHOS!Obs.: O fato de estar em inglês não dificulta em nada o aprendizado pois o método é intuitivo. Um dicionário simples inglês – Português é o suficiente.
