Timed Addition Tests: Practice Tests for Math Students

Timed addition tests are common in school. In order to build your child's confidence in math, you may want him or her to practice at home first. The following websites offer different timed addition test challenges.

Fast Math from Oswego.org

These free, online addition tests can help your child build speed through timed trials. The quizzes are set for one minute, and the goal is to answer as many addition problems as possible in that period. One question pops onscreen at a time, and you can set the maximum number that will appear in each question, from 1-9. This quiz is especially easy to navigate, so your child will probably be able to handle it independently. Because this quiz is so brief, your child probably won't have a chance to get too frustrated or bogged down by any one problem. Also, it has the feel of a game, so you may find your child wanting to play over and over to increase his speed.

Mr. Myers' Free Math Test

This site offers a free, timed addition test. Through repetition and reinforcement, your child will learn and memorize simple addition facts in a fun and fast-paced timed trial. A single test is offered, and it corrects automatically once all the answers are typed in and the 'check' button is pressed.

Math Quiz Games from HoodaMath.com

Two of the free math games offered here are timed addition tests. You can choose the number of questions (from 25, 50 and 100 in some cases). The first game you see toward the top of the site has simpler problems with 1-digit integers, while the second game is more complex. One of the unusual features of these games is that scores can be e-mailed quite easily. You could set up your child to work on a timed quiz, and then have her send you the results when she's finished.

The timer on these games counts up from zero without a limit, so the object is to keep track of your own speed and try to beat yourself. As a result, your child has the motivating factor of the timer, without having to deal with the time running out. This will prevent your son or daughter from giving up before answering all the questions. More math problems get done as result, with hopefully added fun as well.
