So why would not I consider a skill and drill worksheet as an appropriate tool for accomplishing those repetitions? My reason for being opposed to skill and drill worksheets for any learning is based on another important statistic. Regardless of how many repetitions it takes to learn something the first time, if a fact, a technique, a definition, etc. is learned incorrectly, it will take many hundreds-yes hundreds-of repetitions to correct the mistake. Correcting a mistake involves unlearning that which has already been "learned" and then replacing it with the correct information.
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.
