Free Math Cheat Sheet

Through elementary school, middle school and junior high, I used A Beka math. A Beka starts trigonometry in 7th grade and prides itself in being 1-2 full grades ahead of almost every other curriculum. Despite how crazy their curriculum is, they honed my math skills sharply, even if I didn’t enjoy it at the time!

To keep my sanity, I created this math cheat sheet that included everything I needed to survive the school year.

I created its bright color coding for visual learners, like myself. (I also later created a less-feminine color choice, for the boys out there who struggle with math!)

This chart was designed to be used and memorized within time, not necessarily copied for schoolwork. This free math printable is perfect for middle school and high school, but was created with grades 4-8 in mind, since that is the time I used it the most. For durability, you can laminate this sheet, or put it in a plastic protector.

  1. Thank you for the math cheat sheet. My daughter is in 7th grade and she struggles with math. We like that it is very colorful. Thank you.

  2. I’m tutoring in 7th grade math this year. It’s amazing how much I’ve forgotten (or never was taught) in the decades since I myself was in 7th grade! Thanks for this little treasure!

  3. Thanks for the math downloads. They look pretty good (letting my kid decided which one to use). I was looking at them and noticed that the cubic yard had 27 cubic inches when it looks like it should have been labeled cubic feet.

  4. Heather,please send me a copy of this. I think it will help my grandson and granddaughter tremendously. My printer is on the blitz right now. Thank
    You! Mary

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am a homeschooling mom and just shared the link to your blog on my Facebook hoping all my homeschooling mom friends will see your blog and check it out! You are such an inspiration!

  6. Love your blog! You have so many great posts, and I love the math cheat sheet. I am a homeschooling mom and will print this for my children. One question: any chance of you doing simple black and white copies? Trying to make color copies on a black and white printer doesn’t always work out very well. I’ll pray the color copies will work! Be blessed!

  7. Thank you so much for posting this for free. I’ve downloaded it so my youngest, whom I homeschool and who struggles with Math, can use it. Best wishes.

  8. Thank you for the math printable My son started the fourth grade this year and it is getting more and more difficult for the both of us. Im no math wiz. lol

  9. I love that you are a student putting this great blog out!!!
    On your Math Cheat Sheets where you use the term “prefics” for the Metric System, the word should be “prefix”.
    Keep up the good work.

  10. Can you hear me SCREAMING!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. So very helpful for my child (and I). Did you hear that, that’s a sigh of relief. Bless you.

  11. Hi Samantha! I am really enjoying your blog. Just signed up tonight. I would love to have a copy of your math cheat sheet but I can not find where to download it. The place I’m thinking the download button is supposed to be is a cut off graphic on my Mac. All other download areas appear to be ads. 🙁
    Can you help me?

  12. Cant wait to have this for my students! I homeschool a group of students in grades 4th-8th and this will come in handy for each of them!

  13. You are amazing! Thank you so much for these! I teach 5th and 6th grade using a beka, so it’s amazing to finally find a resource that totally correlates with my stuff! I can’t wait to use these in class!

  14. Thank you Samantha! These will be very helpful for my 11 year old daughter starting 6th grade this year. Have you ever written about your homeschool experiences or what curriculums you see that are great? I would love to hear this from you. Thanks again. You are a wonderful help. 🙂

  15. I still can not download and print this math cheat sheet, and I am sad to say so because I find your work extremely helpful. You are an amazing 20 year old. At such a young age, your maturity and saavy as an entrepreneur inspire me.

  16. Hi Samantha,
    I have subscribed to your mailing list, however I haven’t received a copy of this work sheet. I am tutoring a pupil who was bullied out of mainstream school, and I am doing it with a budget of zero. Please could you email a copy of the sheet please.
    Thank you in advance

  17. How do you print off the math cheat sheet? There isn’t anywhere to do that on this page. The only thing to click on it charges you $19 and on this one it says free. Please let me know how to print this off.

    • Where are the errors? It’s a cheat sheet, not an explanation sheet. Drawings or descriptions would’ve taken up too much room unnecessarily. If it’s so bad, go create your own cheat sheet.
