AAA Math's Lessons

Your child can review challenging math topics by looking through the written lessons at AAA Math. These lessons describe challenging topics in detail and will help your child prepare for math tests. At the end of each lesson page, there is a math problem generator that provides practice questions. Your child can hone her skills using this tool, since it only gives problems that relate specifically to the written lesson on that page. Her answers will be instantly corrected, and when she has completed the questions, you will be able to see what percent were answered correctly.

Math Help from

A variety of math activities, practice problems and a homework helper are available here for free. The homework helper doesn't solve equations for you, but allows you to check the answers you have come up with on your own. Your child can use these resources to master basic arithmetic, as well as fractions, decimals, counting money, order of operations and basic algebra.

You'll also find online math flashcards. One question appears onscreen at a time, and the problems are corrected automatically. Similarly, if your child becomes bored easily, the online games may be a great way to engage him with math at a young age. More than a dozen games are offered, some requiring updated Flash software, others with a more basic format.

PDF worksheets are available for those who prefer offline activities that you can print out. A worksheet generator allows you to create your own printable worksheets. You can select which type of math operation should appear (such as addition, multiplication, division and subtraction), the number of total problems and the worksheet layout.

Math Games from Shodor

These computer games can help your child develop math skills while having fun. You'll see games that cover arithmetic, fractions, factors, estimation and order of operations. Lengthy instructions come with each game. You may have to download the latest version of Java in order to run these games.
