On the first day of each month the canteen cooks hamburgers. The Cook needs 1/10 of a kg of mince, 1/8 of a lettuce and 1/5 of a lettuce for each burger. How much of each item does the Cook need to have on hand if every student (except 5) order a hamburger? It takes Principal Jones 20 minutes to walk from his house to the school. If he walks to the school in the morning and home in the afternoon. How long will he walk in total in 1 school week? How long will he walk in total in a 9 week term?

Home-school worksheets are a vital part of the student has home-school experience. They allow the child to test his or her knowledge, and they offer them a practical application for their learning. Worksheets also, when used properly, provide both the students and parent / tutor immediate feedback as to the child has progress. This means they can be used to point out areas where the student needs further reinforcement. Home-school worksheets fortunately will not over-tax your budget. There are many places where you can get them at extremely low costs. In fact, several websites offer printable worksheets for free.
NEVER use "skill and drill" worksheets. These are the worksheets just made up of columns of problems. There are better materials out there, so do not resort to skill and drill. The very worst problem of skill and drill worksheets is the greatly increased chance of a practiced mistake. The same problem will likely appear several times on the same sheet. A wrong answer once means a wrong answer several times; and a practiced mistake takes hundreds of correct repetitions to fix. This danger alone is important enough to never use any worksheet. I am quite serious about how difficult it is to repair a practiced mistake. Learning is hard enough. Re-learning is much more difficult.
