Wanted to share with you all a math site I found the other day that offers a whole collection of free math worksheets on a variety of different math concepts. The worksheets are pretty much just paper drills, but those of you who are trying to assemble your own curriculum using an assortment of different resources may find this helpful. You could use a problem or two from here to provide the “drill” part of your curriculum, using practical math resources/real-life settings to do the majority of your teaching. http://www.math-drills.com
And since writing the above, I found another site, http://score.kings.k12.ca.us/lessons.html, that offers a variety of mock situation suggestions you can use to help bring math into real-life. Don’t forget to point out to your child that math really is just a way of recording God’s creation, and as such is useful in helping us with the tasks He has given us to do.
