There can be few more traumatic experiences for some kids than answering worksheets on fractions; I can remember the awful feeling of sheer dread even now.

See how we've used homeschooling games, candy bars and even a child's watch to bring parts to life.

We've used a similar approach with homeschooling Geometry activities. When it comes to math worksheets, 3-dimensional objects rely on your child having a good understanding of shapes. So why not have some fun and try making some?

Homeschooling Math

Sometimes teaching maths at home can be hard work and you need some homeschooling encouragement.

"Hi everyone!! Having a little struggle here and need to read your thoughts or advice about it.

My girl (13yo) hates math! I've tried almost everything. She doesn't like the online class, she prefers books. I give her 30 min to complete the task, and it takes her an hour or more sometimes. Frustration is about to get me."

~ Carina

Carina is in my Courageous Homeschooling Facebook Group where we give each other support and encouragement as we go through our homeschooling days.

You can see real-life answers and suggestions from other homeschoolers who know exactly what she's going through in this page on homeschool math help.
