Graphing Linear Equations. If you have several sets of x and y coordinates, you can now draw lines on a graph. Free math worksheets can drill you on plotting x and y coordinates while graphing linear equation. A linear equation when drawn on a line graph always yields a straight line. Take "y = 2x + 1" for example _ a linear equation. Assign any three numbers to x, and then solve for y. Whatever numbers you assign to x and whatever y comes out to be, you will end up with a straight line. Remember to practice on easier math worksheets first before moving on to writing a linear equation or to the systems of linear equations. Good luck!
There are many math_based games available in educational toy stores that will help to reinforce the principles your child learns in worksheets. Computer games can help too, but depending on the age of your child, it is best not to encourage too much computer use at an early age. Everyday activities can be turned into math lessons too. A trip to the grocery store can turn into a math lesson if you encourage your child to help you count how many items you are buying, or add up the bottles of milk as you add them to your cart.
