Many of the print settings available in Excel are by default specific to an individual work sheet. These settings include orientation, margins, headers and footers. These types of settings are specified in the Page Layout Tab - Page Set Up group. This can create flexibility in your Excel work book presentations, for example you can have your first sheet in landscape with a margin of 10 centimeters and your second sheet in portrait with a margin of 5 centimeters with no need to reset any settings between the worksheets.It is important to note that any new work sheets that are added to the work book will take default the Excel settings. If you are adding sheets to your work books that require specific settings of margins, headers, footers and orientation then manually changing each new work sheet as it is added can be time consuming and difficult to get everything exactly matching.
Learning basic multiplication facts is a challenge for many students. Students need to memorize basic facts so they will be able to answer them quickly when solving advanced math problems. Students that do not memorize basic multiplication and division facts often struggle with math in the higher grades. So how do you motivate kids to learn their basic math facts? Simply reciting facts or practicing with flashcards is not enough to get kids excited to learn. Instead, try some hands-on games that make learning math facts more fun! Game: Multiplication Draw. Number of players: 2 or more. Materials: A deck of 52 playing cards; Blank paper & pencil for scoring. Each number card is worth face value. Jacks, queens, and kings are worth 10, 11, and 12 respectively. Aces are worth 1.To play the game, shuffle the deck of cards. Player 1 picks two cards from the top of the deck. He will then multiply the cards together. For example, if player 1 drew a queen and a 3, he would multiply 11 and 3 to get 33 points. Each player takes turns drawing two cards, multiplying them, and writing their products on the score sheet.When the the last card in the deck is drawn, players add the products on the score sheet. The player with the highest score in the winner.
Learning math requires repetition that is used to memorize concepts and solutions. Studying with math worksheets can provide them that opportunity; Math worksheets can enhance their math skills by providing them with constant practice. Working with this tool and answering questions on the worksheets increases their ability to focus on the areas they are weaker in. Math worksheets provide your kid has the opportunity to analytical use problem solving skills developed through the practice tests that these math worksheets simulate. Using current word processing programs and computers allow worksheets to be created using colorful graphics that children will find very enticing. This makes them more comfortable and relaxed the worksheet can look more like a game than a test. Using this colorful format, kids are able to feel eager to learn. The most exciting part is now they are developing online worksheets that have animated graphics. These can be access on a website from anywhere they have computer access which makes it an attractive solution to entertain your child while learning.
I am not naive. I know that making mistakes is a normal part of learning, and I know that sometimes there is benefit in teaching from mistakes. But a mistake made once is not the issue here. Skill and drill worksheets provide the unpleasant opportunity for repetition of a mistake. In a classroom setting, a student may have the sheet "completed" before the teacher can make it back around the room. The mistake gets practiced several times and probably will not be identified until the next day. Doing a worksheet at home may or may not be successful. The parent must supervise every moment the child is working on the worksheet if mistakes are to get caught before practiced. No looking at the TV, no stepping into the kitchen to stir the soup, nothing! We have all heard the saying "Practice makes perfect." Unfortunately, it is not true. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect. We do not want permanent mistakes! And as I have said before, there are many interesting, even exciting ways to teach and learn. Why use skill and drill worksheets when it is known how harmful they can be?
The answer, of course, is YES they can. In my perfect world of mathematics education, no pre-school child is ever exposed to a worksheet of any kind. I would swing my magic wand, all worksheets would disappear, and the memory of them would be gone forever. In the real world, I know that simply will not happen. There will still be some parents who will insist on using worksheets. If you must use worksheets, then be sure you do the following things: Know what you are buying. If you can not see it (there is no sample shown), then do not buy it. There are many people out there trying to make a buck off the current popularity of worksheets. Many, if not most, of these people know nothing about mathematics, teaching, or how the brain learns. Anyone can type columns of addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. problems; but these worksheets will be bad for your child. Do not trust what you can not see.
These worksheets had puns or puzzle questions at the top, and as the students worked the problems they were given some kind of code for choosing a letter to match that answer. If they worked the problems correctly, the letters eventually answered the pun or riddle. Students enjoyed these worksheets, but there are a couple problem areas even with these worksheets. Some students would get the answer to the riddle early and then work backward from letter to problem answer, so they were not learning or practicing anything.
