Math has always been a tricky subject for me. I did fabulous in the early years, when it was all about addition and subtraction. I even rocked the multiplication tables! Then we hit division and it all went down hill. Algebra and geometry? Forget about it! I was lost! Now, my son is in 3rd grade and let me tell you, he’s doing math that I didn’t start until years later when I was a kid! Once again, I’m finding myself feeling a little lost.
Fortunately, my son doesn’t take after me (or his father, who was also bad at math) when it comes to numbers. He seems to have a love for digits that I just never developed. He plays math games for fun! I couldn’t be more proud. Yet there are times that he needs a little extra help. At those times, I really don’t know what to do or where to turn. I’m really excited to have discovered Math Mammoth!

Or, if you’re in my boat, give you a refresher course in math so you can help your child with his homework!
The great thing about these Workbooks is that they come in PDF form that is enabled for annotating. This means your child can complete the problems right on the computer. My son is a computer whiz and is so much more comfortable typing than he is writing, so this would be a major plus for him. Of course, if you prefer working with a pencil, you can always print them out.
