Mathematics, or more colloquially, "math", is one of the most important subjects that students learn in school. Not only do good mathematical skills form a necessary for understanding of other subjects, especially the sciences, but also, math is an important life skill. Learning math usually of course begins at young age, sometimes even at home, with learning numbers and counting. At kindergarten and then school, students then progress through arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), and eventually to more advanced topics such as algebra, geometry, graphs and charts, and statistics. In all these areas, but especially during the learning of arithmetic, practice and rehearsal is one of the most ways for students to improve their mastery of the topic.
Remember to select worksheets that are the right level difficulty for your child. Get something too hard, and your child will become discouraged. Make it too easy, and they will not learn much. Home-school worksheets are far more than busy work. They are an important part of making sure that the concepts you teach in your home school stick with your child. Just make sure you have a good source for providing the worksheets, and that they are the right ones for your kid or kids.
In all stages above, it is imperative to do oral and mental math. Without this skill, your child will be forever stuck with a pencil and paper. And the more work done on paper with a pencil, the more there is a chance for an error. And, your child will be stuck following steps instead of "just doing math." Doing oral and mental math makes a person very comfortable with math. Many adults have math phobia, due in no small part to not being able to do mental math. How to do it? While driving, cooking, shopping, sightseeing, almost any situation, you can drill your child on math. If a box costs $2, how much does 2 cost? How many horses do you see? Count the blue cars. Are their more boys than girls? Anything! Be creative. You can even get them to recite the times tables. This will also set the stage for an important skill they must master. Word problems! How many times have you heard people say they cannot do word problems? The oral problems you make up are just another form of word problems. If your child is used to doing math, without a problem written on paper, your child will not fear word problems. If you adamantly do the above, there is one last step. Sometimes it is out of your control, but do your best! Put your child in a class where there is an effective algebra teacher, and all math classes beyond sixth grade. You may find this hard, but the only one fighting for your child is you!
