Thanks for visiting Math-Drills.Com. This math website was created in 2005 with a goal of sharing math resources with parents and teachers who didn't have sufficient resources available at their fingertips. With every new school year comes a number of students who don't have a grasp of basic math facts. This very often results in these same students struggling to succeed with the math curriculum. Math worksheets can help in many ways. You can use them as a diagnostic assessment tool, as ready-made questions with answers for teacher-led lessons, and when students would benefit from repeated practice. Several holiday-themed math worksheets are included as students need refreshers once in a while, and fancy holiday math worksheets are a way of making the refresher fairly painless and somewhat entertaining.
It isn't suggested that you continue to "drill" students when they are showing no signs of progress; this probably means that the student needs a different approach. Instead, use math worksheets found on this website in a non-threatening way: they are best used in conjunction with great teaching/learning strategies. For example, to teach the addition of three-digit numbers, you might create base-ten blocks questions using questions found on one of the free math worksheets. In this example, students are not sitting at their desk with a pencil using an algorithm, they are manipulating base-ten blocks; the math worksheet is used as a source of questions that come with answer keys, so students get feedback on their results, and the teacher saves time.
With all that said, Math-Drills.Com continues to grow. It started with around four hundred math worksheets, and it now boasts over eleven thousand! On average, on school days, the website receive over 150 thousand page views. There is plenty of bandwidth available for new visitors (and new math worksheets), so hopefully, the site will continue to grow.
There are no plans to charge for the math worksheets on Math-Drills.Com. Positive comments and anecdotes about how the math worksheets are used are always welcome.
Free may or may not mean perfect. Once in a while, a mistake is made (and corrected), so be warned that the website nor the math worksheets on it are perfect. Many of the math worksheets are based on user suggestions, so please feel free to make a suggestion.
Printable means that the math worksheets look on paper like they do on the screen. There are many websites that will generate a million different math worksheets for you, but they all look terrible, and they never print out nicely. The pdf format was chosen because it is ubiquitous on computers these days. Even though there are very few problems with viewing and printing pdf files, they sometimes occur, and usually the solution is as easy as reinstalling your pdf software.
We appreciate you visiting Math-Drills.Com, and hope that you will continue to visit for many years to come.
