I  was just reading in a homeschool help book that is a great site for students to practice math skills without all the 'cartoon distractions a lot of programs have'.  I totally agree!  Right from the start I was able to leave my son with the 'paperless worksheets' and know he was getting quality time on the computer. is a program developed by MIT graduates to support grades 2nd through Algebra and
advanced 1st graders. Here's how it works: You or your child picks a math concept to work on.Each skill comes with a mini lesson and sample problems to view. When you choose to start the 'worksheet', it is timed to help evaluate how quickly your student is working through the problems and how much qualtiy time is spent answering them.  The answers are fill-in-the-blank only so you can be sure whether or not your student is proficient with that particular math skill and not just a 'lucky guesser'.

There are several great events that happen after a student completes a worksheet. The program randomly generates math problems that automatically adapt difficulty based on performance, which enables every student to learn at their ideal pace. In addition to this an assessment is emailed to you the parent. The only paper used is scratch paper!

Are you a teacher,administrator, homeschooler, parent, or student? Click on any of these to see how can help you. There are also quite a few demos available to view.  For all of you who like 'freebies' there is a free worksheet generator page to checkout.
