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.
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.
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.
Thankfully, there are tons of resources available online for printable math worksheets that can help you, your students or your child practice any kind of math you can imagine as much as you require.
