As a parent, I am very aware of what my own children are learning in school. For the most part, I have been happy with their progress, but as they rise in grade level, I am starting to see more emphasis on a loose understanding of the concepts and less emphasis on skills--particularly skills with arithmetic of fractions.The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught "concepts" and are not taught skills--unless they are lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better. Most particularly, children are not taught mastery of arithmetic with fractions. Unfortunately, virtually all of their future math education depends on being able to do fractional arithmetic.
If you do want to produce your own worksheets and do not have the Microsoft software, you can download free tools like OpenOffice or use an online word processor or spreadsheet such as the free Google Docs which help you do similar tasks. You just need to create a table with as many rows and columns as you need and then type in some numbers before printing it off for your children to practice - depending on the level of complexity choose single digits or multiple digits. If you are not sure what level to start at, aim low, start with easy numbers and see how your child goes, the self-esteem boost they will get from acing the first worksheet will give them confidence for more difficult math problems.
I have used goal setting worksheets for a number of years to accomplish goals. Today I want to review with you how I have used goal setting worksheets successfully in my life. Yes this is very basic, picking a goal to start, but you have to start somewhere. I have used this first step in a number of areas from fitness goals to financial goals. On your goal setting worksheet at the top of the page you should write your ultimate goal. The goal is your starting point because it is the result you are looking to accomplish. Picking the end goal is like when you go on a vacation road trip to sunny Orlando, Florida. When you pull out of your driveway and you know your goal is to end up in Orlando, Florida. In your car you have maps and a GPS to help you arrive at your goal.
If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least "brain-friendly." This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
I believe in the importance of mathematics in our daily lives and it is critical that we nurture our kids with a proper math education. Mathematics involves pattern and structure; it is all about logic and calculation. Understanding of these math concepts are also needed in understanding science and technology. Learning math is quite difficult for most kids. As a matter of fact, it causes stress and anxiety to parents. How much stress our kids go through? Parents and teachers are aware of the importance of math as well as all of the benefits. Taken in the account how important math is, parents will do whatever it takes to help their struggling children to effectively manage math anxiety. By using worksheets, it can play a major role in helping your kids cope with these stressful. This is a good way to show our children that practicing their math skills will help them improve. Here are some of the advantages using math and worksheets.
Many of the print settings available in Excel are by default specific to an individual work sheet. These settings include orientation, margins, headers and footers. These types of settings are specified in the Page Layout Tab - Page Set Up group. This can create flexibility in your Excel work book presentations, for example you can have your first sheet in landscape with a margin of 10 centimeters and your second sheet in portrait with a margin of 5 centimeters with no need to reset any settings between the worksheets.It is important to note that any new work sheets that are added to the work book will take default the Excel settings. If you are adding sheets to your work books that require specific settings of margins, headers, footers and orientation then manually changing each new work sheet as it is added can be time consuming and difficult to get everything exactly matching.
