Another problem with almost all worksheets is that they do not prevent incorrect answers. Self-checking worksheets just let the student know they did something wrong--after the fact. I am a firm believer in the concept that, if at all possible, learning should be structured in small chunks in such a way that there is very little possibility for error. Worksheets often allow for mistakes to be made and then to be repeated many times. A mistake that gets practiced is extremely difficult to correct. This especially happens when worksheets are used as time fillers or baby sitters and the work is not really being supervised.
A common problem for parents is having to do battle with their children when it comes time to practice learning their times tables. Many things have changed in education over the years, but the elementary math facts used in every level of education have remained the same. Many parents throw up their hands in frustration and give up after several failed attempts to force their child into hours of rote memorization. Many parents today learned their multiplication facts through threats and intimidation. Although forcing a child to sit and flip through flashcards for hours on end might achieve the desired end result of memorizing the facts, it can be quite an unpleasant experience for both the parent and the child. A much more productive method of teaching a child is to introduce some type of fun to the scenario. Certainly the child will have to memorize his or her facts, but it does not have to be an uncomfortable learning experience.
