Assigned practice problems are all well and good, but what do you do when you run out of questions that the teacher has sent home, need to review an earlier unit before moving on to the current math skills, or reach the end of the practice problems in your textbook?
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.
For kids that have a basic interest in math, try using daily riddles to keep them thinking throughout the day. At breakfast, you may ask your child a riddle like, "What number has three tens and four ones?" or, "What is a mathematician s favorite dessert?" Your child can take the day to think about the riddle and tell you the answer when you are working on math practice worksheets after school!
Make numbers a part of your everyday routine. Your child might not like addition, but he may enjoy counting the number of stop signs on the drive to school or the number of stairs on your porch. Lead by example to encourage your child to think of math exercises as a part of his daily routine.
