As a middle-school math teacher, I have seen many students who do understand abstract concepts, and even enjoy learning about things like Pi and the Pythagorean Theorem, but who appear to be unable to do so due to a weak grasp of math fundamentals.
Another important point I keep in mind is that I never want this regular math review time to take up and hour of class time. I want it to be quick but effective. This is not instructional time, but time for the students to review material they have already learned.
Homeschool worksheets are a vital part of the student's homeschool experience. They allow the child to test his or her knowledge, and they offer them a practical application for their learning.
I recommend getting one of these books when you first begin homeschooling and use it as a reference throughout your homeschool journey. Regardless of how long you homeschool, you'll always have doubts and questions about how your child is performing.A scope and sequence book can put your mind at ease.
Subtract 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-digit number from a 5-digit number.
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.
