At Dad's Worksheets you can find a wide variety of worksheets to help students master their math skills. Repetition is the path to mastery, and so the logic goes with timed math tests. Maybe you’re home schooling, or maybe you’re in a district that’s gone full bore into Mad Minute, Rocket Math or some other type of timed testing. Either way, students need practice and lots of it. Nobody learns math by osmosis. Students learn math by burning up pencils and paper. This site has math fact worksheets, place value problems, addition without carrying, subtraction without borrowing, suites of multiplication tests using various methodologies, fractions and more. To get started, click on the Worksheets link in the menu to right and navigate down to some material you need. Print it out, then use the Timer to perform some tests. It’s easy!
