You don’t have to come up with a fancy game in order to make 3rd grade math worksheets more fun. Sometimes simply changing the location increases the “fun factor.” Take your child outside on the patio table or picnic table, and watch as his enjoyment of the activity increases quickly.
For some children, a simple kitchen timer and a chart can be all that you need to make those 3rd grade math worksheets more interesting. Give the child a worksheet that covers basic math facts, such as multiplication tables, then ask them to solve it as quickly as they can. Set the timer, and see if they can solve the problems in less than five minutes. Record the time it takes to complete the problem, adding one second for every missed problem. Then, repeat the next time, and challenge your child to beat his or her score.
Best of all, the vast majority of these worksheets are completely free, and many contain free answer sheets, full solutions, or creative and engaging math games to really help learners unlock their full potential in math.
Fun math worksheets can be game changers for removing your math phobia. Whether you want to prepare your three-year-old for kindergarten, are worried about a nine-year-old who can’t seem to grasp multiplication, are a high school student stressed about an upcoming calculus test, or just want to review basic trigonometry before starting your first college math course, nothing helps more than practice problems.
