some hopefully helpful online mathematics / arithmetic lesson sites

Am sharing with you all, today, a couple of helpful arithmetic / mathematics websites you may wish to check out, for those of you who have chosen to home educate (or for a kind-hearted grandma or grandpa who would like to make use of what is available, for free, online.
Now, realizing that there may be, within this listing shared on this webpage I'm sharing, some sites that include a cost for using their service or site, please keep in mind I am only going to visit those sites which offer free lessons or practice for students or parents to make use of.
If you keep that in mind, you will understand why I shared the links below with you.
Hope you have a happy day enjoying "happy calculating (without calculators)!"
( note:  I really like what MIT shares, free! Registering, to make use of their free, online, educational resources, is also free!  You check it out, and see if it fits what you are looking for!  It is up to you! )
( note:  this link, above, shares help in learning pre-algebra, algebra and geometry )
(note:  this webpage is offered to you all for those who are educators who like worksheets to print out ...)

One helpful example of an instructional video shared on Khan Academy dot org's site is this one I found:  (I like this one!)

Here is another specific example from one of the sites listed:

Here is yet one more example of adding and subtracting integers:

If your student likes cartoons, to help him or her with math concepts, try visiting this page, for some specific cartoons:

And, below here is a link to a blog post about the history of traditional math, which might interest some of you:

may be movin' on ...

Friends (whoever you are who are so kind to be taking time to read this, today),

Am trusting those of you who have come here to read something beneficial to your life ... will bear with me for just a bit longer.
Life has taken several turns, and ... many of those are very, very positive!  yay!
Life on earth has its limits, but we often are the authors of our own limits.  We can begin a new day in a new way, today, if we choose to think a bit outside the "so-called box."

Life eternal is offered to whomever will believe, and take action to walk as The Master walked.

He (The Master, our Messiah Yeshua) came to show us The Way to The Father, YHVH our Elohim.
If we choose to walk with The Master, we are, then, also walking with The One Who created the universe and Who knows how to hold it together, and He can do not wrong!
He is able to hold you up, today!
YHVH is The One Who, alone, can heal and restore your body, your mind and your soul!

YHVH is able to deliver you from whatever ails you and whatever prevents you from moving forward in the direction He has had planned for you to move forward in, ... from before time began!

Let's rejoice in His Name!  He knows who each of us is!  He still chooses to love each of us, and He is willing to bless us at every point in time along the way, as we choose, moment by moment, to "hear and obey" His Word, His teachings!

He is worthy of our praise and thanks!
He is The One to Whom all our allegiance and devotion is due!
He is The One Who is able to pull you up and carry you along, ... until you are flying ... according to His ways!

Let Him carry you and be there for you, when no one else will be!
Let Him do for you what you cannot do for yourself!

As Jim Elliot said, a long time ago, let Him show you this:
Give what you cannot keep.  Gain what you cannot lose.
His actual words were:  “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
― Jim Elliot

Give to others!  Do what you can with what you have!  Trust The Almighty, Who holds all things together!  He will be there with you, if you are choosing to go with Him where He wants you to go!
He knows all the right paths you will be blessed to walk on!
He knows how to help you take the right direction, and continue to keep your trust in Him, Who alone rules over all everywhere !
He holds your life in His Hand!  Let Him direct it!  You will be so thankful you did!

Shalom, to all who will receive it!
