Practice

I would like to dedicate this portion of the site to practice problems for all of you aspiring young mathematicians. While it would be nice to have software or code to generate worksheets of my own, some other very smart and talented people have already done that for us!

I have included below my personal favorite sites to find free math worksheets for you to download or print to practice what it is you are learning. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so I have included them all so that you can play to your own preferences or needs based on your class and personal tastes.

Whether you’re a tutor looking for today’s work for your pupil, a teacher looking to have homework for the kiddos that you don’t have to create yourself, or simply a student who arrived here looking for some free math problem to help you get the hang of a topic on your own, the sites below should definitely get you started!

My personal favorite site to find free math worksheets. The blue column on the left is the menu where you can select your topic or class to narrow down exactly which section you are working on.

For example, if you are working on the Adding and Subtracting Integers lesson, you would select the “Integers” section on the left and find the page that matches what you would like to work on. Each individual page looks something like this:

You will see numerous options in each section to select exactly how you want the page so that it fits your needs best. I find the layout to be one of the most simple of all the sites I’ve seen that generate worksheets.

The most important piece of information is the little box at the bottom of each page.Math-aids integers 2.PNG

At the top you can see a checkbox that will say “Include _____ Answer Page” which is always automatically selected so that you can check your work. If you are printing pages for someone else and do not want them to have access to the answers, however, then simply uncheck the box.

The blue box at the bottom is the important piece I was referring to earlier. I always check the blue box to ensure the format is a pdf when the worksheet is created. This way it is easier to print or save for use on paper or editable if you have something like adobe suite.

Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll get when you create the sheet:

I simply cannot recommend them enough, so head over and check them out for some great practice worksheets for absolutely no cost! And each sheet is completely different, so you have infinite math problems to work through!

This is another awesome site that will give you a lot more control over how the pages you generate are formatted. The only reason this site isn’t my top pick is how intimidating the options will be for some of my students who I send to these sites to find their own homework.

Check out the example below:

First I clicked on Algebra, then you can see in purple at the bottom center, “Algebra Worksheet Generator.” Click this for what you see below:

The menu isn’t quite as cutesy as the other, in my humble opinion, but oh boy does it give you more options. I LOVE this one for being able to generate unique sheets every time I tutor especially. I just hesitate to send pupils here as it can be more difficult for them to successfully create a page that is exactly what they need to practice in order to succeed.

I’ll include a snip of a sheet you might create from this exact menu.

Great stuff! Again, can’t recommend these guys enough, so check ’em out!

Yet again, you can navigate this site for whatever topic it is that you might be studying or working on. There is a catch with this site, however. They only have one worksheet available for free in each concept.

Granted, they have a HUGE selection and have some beautiful sheets with well laid-out problems spaced perfectly. But that’s how they get ya! You can download their software for a free trial to be able to generate infinite problems and sheets of the same style as their freebies if you so choose.

But, as you can see from the first two on this list, paying for infinite problems really isn’t a necessity with so many resources at your disposal. Here’s a snip of exactly what you’ll see with Kuta:

Conclusion

Hopefully these three sites can help you along the way to find some great practice material to hone your skills and improve your math ability. There are hundreds more available, or you can simply Google “blah blah worksheet pdf” and find worksheets straight from the search list.

Regardless of the route you choose, these are my top pics and have never let me down in my decade of tutoring. Happy math-ing!
