One of the most difficult and challenging things that you can do with elementary school students is get them to enjoy math. Addition worksheets and subtraction worksheets are not what most children want to be doing during their day. Math in basic terms is often all that easy to teach, but when it comes to teaching the more complicated theories of mathematics, around third grade, it can be a little more difficult to keep the students interested. It can be even more difficult to implement ways of teaching that can help the students understand the theories of multiplication without getting confused.
During a recent internet search of sites promising the stars of success in mathematics, I discovered a site dedicated to teaching the multiplication facts with, what else but, skill and drill worksheets. Page after page, after page of skill and drill worksheets. At first, I was terribly frustrated to see this and I started to ask the question How many times do I need to say...?" Then I remembered the answer: At least one more! As in a previous article, I have chosen another very important reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets, and I will explain in detail why it is a concern. Skill and drill worksheets increase the likelihood of practiced mistakes; and practiced mistakes are incredibly difficult to correct.
