If a student is doing a worksheet of 40 problems all about the order of operations, and the student has a rule confused, then every problem will be missed. But the bigger concern is that the mistake just got practiced 40 times. It just became ingrained in that student has mind to forever cause trouble unless it can be corrected. I have had many high school Algebra students enter class thinking they know the correct order of operations, but we quickly learn that something is wrong. Digging a little deeper, we discover that they learned the order of operations incorrectly, although they will swear they are doing what they were taught. In reality, they have spent the previous couple of years practicing incorrectly. Their answers got marked wrong but no one took the time to find out why. And the damaged was never repaired.
Teachers are actually doing their best to educate children. The problems with education are not so much on the level of teachers as with the institution as a whole. It is kind of like the state of communications in our country before the deregulation of the telephone companies. Before deregulation, one and only one advancement--the touch tone phone. After deregulation, well you have cell phones, the Internet, instant messaging, you name it! What dedicated teachers and parents need to do is to supplement public school instruction with strategies that work, that have always worked, to get kids to really master the fundamental skills of elementary math. Which brings us to the purpose behind this article. One of the most effective ways I have found to help kids in a focused area of weakness are printable math worksheets. The big problem with concept-based instruction is lack of practice. Printable math worksheets solve this problem nicely.
