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?
Turn everyday activities into fun math practice. If your child is eating waffles for breakfast, see if he can divide a waffle into halves or quarters. Younger children might be able to count the number of waffle grooves while older children might be able to calculate the waffle s circumference.
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!
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.
