5) Neuroscientist turned-middle-school teacher, Judy Willis, M.D., says that when students have an Achievable Challenge and are able to find their own Friendly Mistakes that dopamine (the reward hormone) is released and students’ neural networks related to the topic they are working on actually BECOME STRONGER.

Achievable Challenge Grows Their Brain

These “Use My Mind Save Your Time” Math Color-by-Number worksheets are an Achievable Challenge because students are typically allowed to do them on their own time, using the resources they need to get the answer right (releasing dopamine, Oh, ya!).

Friendly Mistakes Grows Their Brain

These “Use My Mind Save Your Time” Math Color-by-Number printables help students quickly see their math mistakes because if they solve a math problem and their answer does not have a color associated with it, they have learned for themselves that they’ve made a mistake. This easy, low-stakes way of finding their mistakes is called a “friendly mistake.” It can help us learn and help our brains grow. (Allowing students to look at the answer key when they are finished is another way to have students find “friendly mistakes.”)


6) Administrators, Teachers, Parents, and Students will ALWAYS KNOW what Math Standard students are working on because the specific CCSS code is printed on the bottom of every worksheet that tells the math standard students are working on.


7) The “Use My Mind Save Your Time” math color-by-number resource is available in EVERY grade from Kindergarten thru 5th grade. So, if your student is not on grade level, just grab a packet for a lower or higher grade.

These math color-by-number worksheets are like a breakfast cereal fortified with fun AND learning! Add them to your morning (homework, or math center) routine and watch your students ENJOY building their math fluency.
