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.
I believe in the importance of mathematics in our daily lives and it is critical that we nurture our kids with a proper math education. Mathematics involves pattern and structure; it is all about logic and calculation. Understanding of these math concepts are also needed in understanding science and technology. Learning math is quite difficult for most kids. As a matter of fact, it causes stress and anxiety to parents. How much stress our kids go through? Parents and teachers are aware of the importance of math as well as all of the benefits. Taken in the account how important math is, parents will do whatever it takes to help their struggling children to effectively manage math anxiety. By using worksheets, it can play a major role in helping your kids cope with these stressful. This is a good way to show our children that practicing their math skills will help them improve. Here are some of the advantages using math and worksheets.
Many people think that showing a student once how to correct the mistake and having them practice that one problem is sufficient. WRONG! It will take having the student do hundreds of similar problems correctly with constant supervision to replace the incorrect method in the brain. Many freshmen enter Algebra with learned multiplication mistakes-the most common of which is 7 x 8 = 54. (I will trust that you know the correct answer is 56.) These mistakes that students bring into Algebra have been practiced so many times by the time the students arrive in high school, that the students often do not even believe they made any mistakes. And the Algebra teacher does not have the time it takes to fix these errors.
The importance of multiplication practice cannot be emphasized enough for today has elementary school students. Knowing on has basic multiplication facts is an essential building block for later mathematics classes where this essential knowledge will be expected to be not only understood, but mastered. 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.
Use this book as a guide as to which multiplication worksheets you should print off. If your child is just beginning to multiply multi-digit problems without carrying, do not make the mistake of giving her worksheets that have carrying. It will most likely throw your child for a loop and she will become upset. Because there are so many sources of worksheets on the internet, you are never sure what you are going to find at a particular site. Choose worksheets that are neat and organized without too many problems jumbled on to each page. The concept of neatness needs to be taught to your child as they do math. If your child does not learn this, be prepared for many careless mistakes later on in his math work. Boys in particular do not take the time to be neat and careful. If you give him multiplication worksheets that are crowded on to each page without room to write the answers, this in encouraging messiness.
If you do want to produce your own worksheets and do not have the Microsoft software, you can download free tools like OpenOffice or use an online word processor or spreadsheet such as the free Google Docs which help you do similar tasks. You just need to create a table with as many rows and columns as you need and then type in some numbers before printing it off for your children to practice - depending on the level of complexity choose single digits or multiple digits. If you are not sure what level to start at, aim low, start with easy numbers and see how your child goes, the self-esteem boost they will get from acing the first worksheet will give them confidence for more difficult math problems.
