PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE

Most important, the math worksheets are designed to encourage verbal interaction between students, parent and educator. Don’t just give an extra assignment and walk away! Your student will either enter a rote learning trance state or do the work badly. Instead, present the worksheets as safe places for interesting conversations about math. Work the problems together and talk them through. You may also assign two students to work together as a cooperative learning team, and discuss the worksheet with both at once. The emphasis isn’t just on getting lots and lots of problems right, but on understanding what math is and how it works as a reasoning process.
