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.
The same is true for mastery of working with fractions. So, in general, kids who do not learn their multiplication tables and arithmetic with fractions usually do not do well in math. It is been proven that success in science depends to a great extent on success in math. So, these same kids usually do not do well with science, either. In other words, they are locked out of most of the growth that our economy is going to experience in the future. According to the federal government, eight out of ten jobs in the next twenty years are going to be computer related. If you want your child to have access to the major portion of jobs in the future, your child must master math. It is that simple.
