In my 5th grade classroom, we use a math review series that's engaging and entertaining at the same time. In essence they are simply halfpage handouts with ten standards based math problems woven into a special picture or exciting scene. Remember, I want to keep the math review time quick, but effective.
They're also available for nearly all grade levels. There are printable middle school, high school, elementary school, and even pre-school worksheets.
Great, fun and free math worksheets should be able to present a mathematical problem in different ways. Math is after all nothing more than a numeric expression of some of life's simplest questions:
Worksheets also, when used properly, provide both the students and parent / tutor immediate feedback as to the child's progress. This means they can be used to point out areas where the student needs further reinforcement.
Times are different these days. Kids are growing up in a world of microwaves, fast food chains, Nintendo, Wifi, iPads, along with a ton of other technical marvels.
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.
