All Math
It's so important to learn addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, because it helps prepare us for anything. Just think about it. If you have a pizza recipe for 1 small pizza and you need 4 large pizzas, addition and multiplication can help you buy the right stuff, mix it correctly, cook it just right and even split the bill with your brother. After all it's his friends you're cooking for! So, we've put together a pretty good flashcard program that can help you memorize your times tables. We are ready to answer your questions and try to give you a place to learn more about arithmetic.

FunBrain Numbers
Seventeen original games based on baseball, soccer, car racing and other fun things will intrigue even the most stubborn elementary-age math students.   My favorites included Cookie Dough (learn to spell numbers up to 10,000 and don't forget that compound numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine  use a dash), Change Maker (in four different currencies) and Tic-Tac-Toe Squares (not your usual Tic-Tac-Toe.)  Some of the game pages were a little slow to load, but the quality of the games overshadowed this one drawback.

MathWork
MathWork, a tool for creating an unlimited number of customized printable math-related worksheets and answer keys, is a labor of love for homeschooling dad Scott Byrce. In addition to the usual operators, MathWork includes fractions, graphing, telling time, reading a tape measure, and a one hundred chart. "A one hundred chart has a variety of uses. A one hundred chart can be used to teach counting or skip counting. A one hundred chart that starts at zero is good for introducing the concept of place value. A one hundred chart that starts at one can be used to teach about the Sieve of Eratosthenes, and for finding prime numbers."

About Math Worksheet Land
Math is a universal language. Regardless of your culture or your dialect two plus two equals four. That is why I like math; it is one of the only things out there that everyone agrees on; outside of theoretical math of course.

Native American Geometry
About 500 years ago, the Navajo Nation moved from the Northwest to the American Southwest. There they learned the art of rug weaving from the Pueblo Indians. The Navajo became very good at weaving and developed it into an art of their own. The Navajo used geometrical shapes and designs in their rugs. Geometry is the study of shapes, such as circles, triangles, and squares. These shapes can be found on the rugs that they make.
