### Decrease Math Anxiety With Printables

Mathematics is an important skill for students, yet math can cause a lot of anxiety in young children. As early as kindergarten, kids are introduced to math. As they progress in grade school, children will learn math skills such as addition and multiplication—as well as subtraction and division.

### Math Anxiety

While math can be fun and challenging for some children, it can be a very different experience for others. For many students, working with numbers and math concepts can lead to math anxiety, where they can develop a fear and stress about math.

Help students overcome their anxiety and learn math in a fun way by breaking down skills. Start with work sheets that cover addition and multiplication. The following worksheets provide addition and multiplication tables to help students learn the skills necessary for these two types of math operations.
