Challenge your students with creative mathematics lessons, printable worksheets, activities, quizzes, and more during Math Education Month (April)—or anytime of the year! Focus on various mathematical themes, such as geometry, algebra, probability and statistics, money, measurement, and more! Incorporating other subjects—such as art, reading, and science—into your math lessons will help hold your students interest in the subject.
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.
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.
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?
