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.
Know the author is background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain-based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that did not specifically mention being brain-based. I am not talking about just research-based. I see more and more sites claiming to have research-based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain-based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
