Online resource for math worksheets??

My 11 year old 5th grader will be home for the month of March because of an outbreak of pertussis at her school, if there are more cases she will stay home longer. I fight with the school enough, so I am not going to fight with them on homebound instruction-- they will likely only provide 5 hours the entire month.

Where are some good printable resources for math practice? I would rather have printables as she is very good at using the computer and tablet, so will quickly move to other sites or apps if I leave her alone with the electronics.
She has a scattering of skills: she is just learning to carry over in addition and subtract 2-3 digit numbers, 0-10 multiplication, and a start on simple fractions. She does better with memorization than figuring out the mathematical concepts.

We have used Singapore math in the past, but with the sudden change and hopefully, short period I didn't want to pay out for the books. We did have to skip some pages in the Singapore books as her skills vary.

If you do go to computer programs I like IXL and Moby Math. They both give you reports so you could tell if she is working. If you google your topic along with the words free worksheet there are usually good choices. Also Khan Academy has quick web lessons and follow-up questions.

www.education.com
www.mathusee.com (go to "elearning" tab and then "worksheets" or "drills")

We have used both and like them. Actually, MUS is our normal curriculum around here.

We have tried using Khan before, it feels like a punishment to her. MUS and education.com looks really good for us, thanks!
