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.
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.
