Worksheets By Grade Level
As you view each area you will have the ability to view and print worksheets from all grade levels from Preschool through High School. Students will have the ability to view and use practice worksheets, homework sheets, and quizzes on each of the topics that we explore with them. All the worksheets below are aligned to the standard math curriculum. A lesson and guided practice page is available to allow students to progress at their own pace.
- Preschool is a level that is overlooked by the core curriculum.
I have done my best to address students at this level, without standards
from which to work.
- This grade level is heavily dependent on count skills. The geometry
sections can often be challenging for the little ones.
1 - We start working on our basic operations at this level.
Hopefully we have a good understanding of subtraction by the time
we are done.
- Grade 2 - You
will master your basic operations and start looking at fractions
and graphs in their most simplistic form.
3 - Third grade starts to become heavy with fractions and measurement.
It gets really hands on with tools as well. A really fun math grade
to teach or learn.
4 - We spend a great deal of time mastering fractions. We start
to explore geometry and solve equations in basic algebra.
5 - Students start to see real algebra for the first time. Multiplication
and long division are at the core of this grade level.
6- Proportions finally take hold and we are ready for real algebra
at this grade level. The word problems actually get difficult.
7- Statistics and probability start to get difficult for most.
Trigonometry and relationship between algebra and geometry start
8- Geometry and three step problems begin to dominate the curriculum.
Those areas require a great deal of attention for students.
School: Numbers and Quantity- This is where the heat gets turned
up a bit. From a walk to a run as far as curriculum goes.
School: Algebra - The root of all problems is finding like terms
and simplifying by factoring. You have those two skills down and
you're ahead of the game.
School Geometry - A mix of real-world applications can be found
in this material. This math has many practical applications.
School Functions - Functions are a form of math that is in high
demand at the corporate level. Chances are if your job uses functions
often, you are successful.
- High School Statistics and Probability - The math skills that help you model and forecast what will happen with subtle changes.
How to Determine a Students' Math Level
Many students will pass on through school sequentially. They will be assessed along the way, but often they have difficulty in certain areas that often are not addressed. When a problem area appears, students will often shy away from that topic as they matriculate through the system. This often presents students with a problem area that is never truly addressed and cause problems later on down the road. One method we have encouraged our teachers to get in the habit of is assessing students the minute they enter your classroom. An easy way to do this is to give students a complete assessment of their previous grade level. For instance, we would use our fourth grade three form of test with students that are entering the fifth grade. Students may be a bit rusty since they just had summer vacation, but an average student should achieve a seventy-percent score on all three forms of the assessment. This will help you quickly identify where your class as a whole is. You will know right away which students will struggle with the fifth-grade curriculum. You will also be able to recognize your higher achievers. There are some occasions where you may find that your class has weaker math skills. This can happen for many reasons including previous teacher absences, lack of a structured curriculum, or gaps in a full curriculum. In these circumstances we would highly recommend that you spend a few weeks reviewing material that to be mastered in the previous grade level. While some teachers feel that this just wastes time, it does greatly benefit students and will make the new work much more doable. If you proceed without addressing this, you and your students will be in for a tough year. We have several teachers that are regulars here that spend the first two weeks of their school year assessing and addressing. We have a few high school teachers that will not proceed with their curriculum until they are certain their students are ready for it. While it may seem like unnecessary or tedious work, these teachers swear by this method and usually produce the better math students in their respective school buildings.
