How many kids in school have done their homework? Again this can be answered in several ways: in percentages, 70%; or in ratio, 7:10; Both of these mean out of ten kids in class there are seven good ones who did and three not-so-good ones who didn't. The bottom line is that kids learn math much better when it makes sense.
For this reason, attractive, well-illustrated worksheets with something to do will make learning fun for them. What's more, completing your worksheet will give the child a tremendous sense of fulfillment.
Save Money : It's 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 homeschool.
Save Time : Free worksheets not only save you money, they can also save you time. If you decide that it is best for your child to do worksheets especially tailored for his needs, by doing a little research for printable math worksheets found online, you don't have to make the worksheets yourself. This can save a lot of time. Worksheets aren't that difficult to make, but it can be time consuming.
In other words, they never memorized their multiplication tables! Many times I have seen a student do poorly due to a weakness in basic math facts they should have learned in third grade.
When a child learns to relate math to everyday questions, he will be great at it from the simplest addition all the way to trigonometry. To convert percentages, decimals and fractions is thus one essential skill.
