The children and their parents were informed about all the features of the study and gave their consent to participate in the experiment. To achieve the objective set, the following research methods were used: study and analysis of scientific and methodological literature; pedagogical observation, timing of learning tasks; pedagogical experiment, methods of mathematical statistics, methods of mathematical experiment planning. During training, a method of algorithmic instructions was used.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> Regression dependence is observed throughout the entire period of performing the series of learning tasks. The constructed mathematical models adequately describe the obtained data. The calculated regression coefficients are statistically significant (Fр &lt; Fkр). Throughout the experiment, the factor X<sub>1</sub> “number of sets” had a constant positive effect on the target feature (Y). The percentage contribution in the first series of learning tasks was 87.8%, in the second – 32.3%, in the third – 55.1%, in the fourth – 77.2%, in the fifth – 68.9%, in the sixth – 54.03%. The factor X<sub>2</sub> “rest interval” had a negative effect starting from the second series – 67.3%, the third – 40.4%, the fourth – 19.3%, the fifth – 30.6%, the sixth – 45.05%. The effect of first-order interaction (X<sub>1</sub>X<sub>2</sub>) was not observed during all the series of learning tasks.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions. </strong>The optimal modes of performing the series of tasks for teaching boys aged 10 the Mae-geri (front kick) in Kyokushin karate are the following: series 1 – 3 sets, rest interval 60-120 s; series 2 – 1-3 sets, rest interval 60 s; series 3 – 3 sets, rest interval 60 s; series 4 – 3 sets, rest interval 60–120 s; series 5 – 3 sets, rest interval 60 s; series 6 – 3 sets, rest interval 60 s.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Journal of Learning Theory and Methodology}, author={Marchenko, Svitlana and Kovalenko, Kateryna}, year={2020}, month={Jun.}, pages={33–39} }
