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.
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.
