## Metric Measurement Worksheets Posted

As promised, a follow up to last week’s Inch Measurement Worksheets is here, and unsurprisingly it’s a set of similar measurement worksheets for centimeters and millimeters. You’ll find all the new goodies at the link below…

Metric Measurement Worksheets

Just like the inch versions, variants of these worksheets require the student to identify specific measurements on the ruler, as well as measure the length of an object. The object starts out at the zero position, but more advanced worksheets move the object to mid-points on the ruler.

If you are just starting to teach the metric system, there is a great introduction in the Overview of the Metric System post from a few months back. This post discuss the relationship between metric distance, volume and mass units, as well as providing an introduction to the various prefix and base combinations used to produce different metric units. Re-reading this post has been a great review for the oldest daughter before certain math units as well as several science tests.

## New Inch Measurement Worksheets

A new series of worksheets for working with inch measurements on a ruler have been posted at the link below…

Inch Measurement Worksheets

Variants of these worksheets require the student to identify specific measurements on the ruler, as well as measure the length of an object. The object starts out at the zero position, but more advanced worksheets move the object to mid-points on the ruler, requiring some fraction subtraction to get the correct total measurement.

PhotoShop is amazing… I’m particularly pleased with how well these sheets came out visually, and one of the ruler images used in the worksheets is below. Let me know what you think!

Look for metric versions to come soon… Happy measuring!

## More Picture Math Worksheets!

I was so pleased with the way the Division Worksheets came out, that I went ahead and created picture math worksheets for the other operations available at the links below…

Enjoy!

## Picture Math Division Worksheets

With the youngest in first grade, we’re just starting the gradual ascent up the multiplication and division mountains. Division especially is one of those topics that you really want to get right once, quickly and up front. The older girl seemed to grasp division and remainders almost magically, which left her guide thankfully with more time at the base camp relaxing with a hot cup of coffee.

We’re starting a bit earlier with my second young explorer, and to get her off on the right foot I’ve put together some worksheets that illustrate division more conceptually. You’ll find the a new collection of what I’m calling “Picture Math Division” at the link below…

Picture Math Division Worksheets

These worksheets use a grid (sometimes supplied, sometimes drawn by the student) to break a division problem down into counting sets. This lets us introduce division with remainders in a very natural and obvious way. Variants of the worksheets also include word problem form for some of the more simple problems.

Happy climbing!

## New Worksheets for Percentage Math Posted

After several requests and a not-so-fun Saxon Math lesson here, I am pleased to announce a new set of Percentage Worksheets available on the site.

The new worksheets include practice calculating a percentage given two numbers, calculating a the fractional part of a set given the total and a percentage, turning percentages into equivalent fractions and converting fractions into percentages. Each topic area advances progressively through more difficult problems, including percentage values greater than 100%.

You can find the new worksheets by visiting the link below, or by navigating the Worksheet menu on the right side of this page.

Hope these sheets give your kids some solid percentage practice, and since we’re only 2.2% of the way through 2011, I think I can still wish you a hearty Happy New Year!
