Student and Parent Resources

November 25, 2012

Student and Parent Resources


• Math concepts are best mastered through repeated practice of each skill. Continued practice enables students to apply the same skills to various problems. One way to do this is to complete additional problems, for that skill, which are listed in their math textbook and then check the answers in the back. The students can also access the following websites for printable worksheets and (answer keys) that match a majority of the skills being presented in class. Please note that there are several other websites that provide printable math worksheets but these are a few sites that I commonly visit.

*You may access the worksheets that are listed as ‘Free’.

• While practicing, students would benefit by “thinking aloud” – orally walking through the steps to complete the problems. For instance, they would be stating aloud each step as they would physically write it.  As a student, I can still remember completing my math problems by talking aloud as I did each step. By doing this, the steps that I needed to follow through on would become better remembered and automatic.  


• If students are uncertain of how to explain the steps aloud to themselves or others, I encourage them to visit the following websites to watch a video presentation of some of the skills that are being presented in the classroom.

• Lastly, I believe that students will experience greater success on tests and quizzes when they are reviewing the skills for several days beforehand. By reviewing daily for 10 or 15 minutes, the students would build up their memory of how to do the skills and have time to ask for help in class if needed. One fun way that the students can review is by completing math problems on a small white board. If students don’t have a white board, they could also put a piece of white paper in a plastic clear sheet and write on the clear sheet with a dry erase marker. If they don’t want to use any of these, scratch pieces of paper will do just fine.  


I hope that some of these resources would be beneficial when students are completing homework or preparing for tests or quizzes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to respond quickly.


Thank you in advance for the support from home!
