The Math Worksheet Site

The Math Worksheet Site is the brilliant brainchild of Scott Bryce. For just a few dollars a year, you can print out an unlimited number of hundreds of types of math worksheets, all printed out to your own specifications. Amazing. I would include a subscription to this website on my list of essentials for a homeschooling family. Laurie

Dear Laurie,

About 10 years ago your family did a small seminar in Sandy, Utah. I attended that seminar and agreed vigorously with everything you said … until you mentioned delaying formal (seat work) math. That took me aback. But after a few moments’ reflection, I remembered the difficulty my bright 5 year old had with the abstract concept of place value just a few weeks earlier. I decided you were right and we put formal math back on the shelf.

But we just couldn’t quite keep away from pencils and paper entirely, and a year or so later my husband wrote a small computer program to generate worksheets. It was a compromise between the structure and demands of a textbook and looking like we were “doing nothing” in math.

So, on mostly an interest-led basis, our children did their daddy’s worksheets until they’d become proficient in long division, when they started Saxon 65 as you suggested.

Our children have spent a lot less time in their seats with math in the younger years than they would have spent with a textbook, because with the flexibility of The Math Worksheet Site, when they’ve mastered a concept, they can move on immediately.

Meanwhile my husband’s hobby grew, grew, grew again, and then became a business in March of 2004. We now have subscribers all over the world. Today’s new subscriptions included two from England and one from Canada, as well as spanning the US from California to Ohio to Georgia.

Yours in Christ,

Denise Bryce

What is The Math Worksheet Site?

The Math Worksheet Site allows you to create an endless supply of math worksheets. The intuitive interface gives you the ability to customize each worksheet to target your student’s specific needs. Every worksheet is created when you request it, so they are different every time. The Math Worksheet Site is not a collection of worksheets. It is a web site that creates the worksheets you want, when you want them, according to the criteria you specify.

This way you can add the drill that your student needs to a curriculum you already like, or you can be freed from the constraints of a workbook or textbook that gives either too much or too little practice if you’d rather direct the studies yourself.

The Math Worksheet Site is very easy to use, saves homeschooling parents a lot of time, and is very inexpensively priced for the value.

After logging in, you’re at the subscribers area home page. Click on any black worksheet title, and it will give you a selection page where you can further customize the worksheet. Click the “Create It” button and it will create a new worksheet for you in PDF format. Print out the worksheet and the answer key and hand the worksheet to your student. It’s that easy.

We’re continually adding to the site. Currently under development is a type of worksheet for calculating the volume of 3-d solids such as spheres and cylinders. Also we made arrangements just this last week to have the instructions on the worksheets available in English or Spanish. Translation has just begun.

Endorsements

The Math Worksheet Site is one of the most valuable tools available on the Internet. I use it with my own children daily and promote it on my web site HomeschoolChristian.com. Being able to tailor the worksheets and repeat as necessary with freshly generated sheets make this a virtual replacement for textbooks for most of elementary school. New worksheets are added regularly, including many covering skills that are often glossed over in textbooks, such as Roman numerals, adding and subtracting time by varying amounts of time, and reading a simple tape measure. The low yearly subscription is well worth the additional cost over the free worksheets. One of my top 5 recommendations on the Internet.

    I am a public school teacher of special needs students and I use this site regularly to create sheets that meet my student’s needs — at their individual levels. This is a great asset to my classroom.
