Ten years ago, I sat down with my oldest daughter who was struggling with her 2nd grade math facts, and I started making practice worksheets using a few Python scripts. When several parents asked me to share those worksheets online, DadsWorksheets.com was born.
Over the course of the last decade, the number of worksheets has grown, and I’ve had the chance to build charts and calculators and games that have all played a role in helping my kids, and hopefully yours, learn math.
There are over 8,000 worksheets now and almost 20 million visitors have stopped by looking for help with multiplication or word problems or Roman numerals or some other math topic, each of which is tied to memories in my basement office with my own kids. It’s been a lot of fun for me, but I am also humbled by how many people have visited. All of your support and encouragement has definitely added to the joy of building DadsWorksheets.
My oldest daughter is entering college at University of Arizona next year, and my youngest daughter is starting 2nd grade, so the cycle in many ways has come full circle. I’m thankful for my four amazing girls, and to all of the people I’ve had a chance to interact with since this site first started, and I’m excited to see what the next ten years brings!
