You might remember a concept in algebra called "factoring." Factoring means breaking up into parts that are multiplied together to give you the whole. You can factor numbers.If this does not make any sense to you, do not worry about it. Just trust me, if you do not know your multiplication tables, you can not factor. If you can not factor, you will not do well at all in algebra, geometry, or trigonometry. The same is true for mastery of working with fractions. So, in general, kids who do not learn their multiplication tables and arithmetic with fractions usually do not do well in math. It has been proven that success in science depends to a great extent on success in math. So, these same kids usually do not do well with science, either.
What dedicated teachers and parents need to do is to supplement public school instruction with strategies that work, that have always worked, to get kids to really master the fundamental skills of elementary math. Which brings us to the purpose behind this article. One of the most effective ways I have found to help kids in a focused area of weakness are printable math worksheets. The big problem with concept-based instruction is lack of practice. Printable math worksheets solve this problem nicely. As a teacher, I supplement my lessons with appropriate worksheets. I can then check a student has progress. I can also monitor how much work they actually are doing.
Ordinary math worksheets certainly serve a purpose, but think carefully about the ratio of those to story problems when helping your child prioritize his or her available math study time. Why use free math worksheets? Easy. These worksheets can save you a lot of time and money and when you are a busy home-school mom teaching several children, this means a lot. It is easy to see how free worksheets can save you money. If you want, you can skip buying math books and just use worksheets that you get for free on the internet. All you need to do is use a scope and sequence book that tells you what your child needs to be doing in math by age and grade. This book is essential when you home-school.
