DONGURI theory and DONGURI problems

DONGURI’s aim is for every child to develop excellent problem-solving abilities and to grow into well-rounded young adults through our unique and effective math method.


We can often hear the statement,
“Nowadays children’s problem solving skill has deteriorated.’


We all know that mathematical education or, more broadly, developing children’s problem solving capacity is one of the most important current challenges facing education.


However, sector specialists are still unsure how to tackle this problem. For the time being, most of the teachers still approach problem solving in a conventional way even if they are aware that the issue has not been solved.

I believe there is however a method DONGURI developed in Japan which would help to develop problem solving skills in children with fun. The method is based on understanding the human thinking process and how this can be employed to develop children’s academic ability taking also into consideration their brain development.


I would be very interested in understanding the effectiveness of this methodology and explore, if it is considered to have potential, its potential introduction in a multilingual country such as Luxembourg.
