A lot of students are struggling in Math, especially these days, given that many of them find this particular subject boring and complex compared to other subjects that are far more interesting in nature.

But numbers are very vital in today’s business age –and can tremendously affect ones’ future career if you’re good at it.

Math is one of the foundational skills anyone must have in order to succeed in the future.

Luckily, here at StudyPug, we aim to help teachers and parents (especially those who are homeschooling their kids) to find useful resources that can help them make teaching Math easier.

So we’ve listed below some of the most useful elementary resources – from Kinder to 5^{th} grade – that you’ll find on the web.
