## Happy First Birthday!

Well, DadsWorksheets.com is now officially one year old. We’ve come a long way. We’ve seen over 300,000 visits to the site that generated over 2.25 million page views. And of course, 3,937 free worksheets.

We’re about to start another school year, which will be fourth grade and kindergarten here. I’m looking forward to the challenges that a new school year brings, and hope you’ll stop by to share in the fun. It will be great to see where we’re at in another year. Thanks for everyone’s support!

## Dad Goes Back to Mac

For years, Dad was a two-OS guy, with two computers (a Mac and a Windows machine) whirring away on the desk. I was multitasking before multitasking was even a word, but I did most of the day-to-day computing on a Mac. In fact, all of the business accounting still happens on an ancient PowerMac G3 that I’ve dredged out of the closet annually for the last decade or so.

Here’s a few quick worksheet updates to keep young math magicians busy!

The multiple digit multiplication worksheets have been updated to not include any problems where a multiplicand is one. We’ve been hitting multiple-digit multiplication pretty hard over the summer. It’s great review for the basic multiplication facts and keeps the mechanics of the multi-digit process fresh for when school starts back up. However, the 1xN digit worksheets, there was a 11% probability that a problem would have a ’1′ in it. I’m hoping my daughter won’t notice that these “gimme” problems are gone now…

Not wanting to neglect the division operator, the recent updates include responses to a few recent user requests for more specific division series problems. You can now find division problems for doubles plus one as well as progressive division facts for small remainders in two new series of worksheets.

I hope your summer vacations are all going well!
