Never allow boredom to set in. We know now that when learning is fun and exciting, the brain is actually growing many new dendrites that make connections with many other dendrites. The more connections the better. We also know now that boredom destroys dendrites. Small children quickly become bored with worksheets, especially skill and drill worksheets. Yet another reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets like the plague. Never allow your child to use a worksheet unsupervised. Some parents use worksheets to provide time to fix supper or add another load of laundry. Unfortunately, while you are npt looking, your child just might have practiced a mistake several times. The time you thought you saved is not nearly as much time as it will take to fix that mistake. If you consistently do these things, you might be able to successfully use worksheets; but, seriously, a few minutes of your personal time will provide better learning for your child than a truckload of worksheets.
Each grade act as a step in the whole staircase to the mathematics high-rise building. Performing poor in math in any grade is like breaking some steps in the whole staircase. As broken steps make the whole staircase risky or scary to use in the future, incomplete math competencies in lower grades make math very hard in the high school. So, what it takes to be smart in mathematics? My answer is; stay focused on math in each and every level of your studies. Participate in your class math practice sessions. Ask your teacher lots of questions until you are not clear about any concept. Mathematics is a subject of solving the problems on paper by hand rather than only to read them. As in case of Social Studies taking more readings make you smart, in math practicing lots of problems and solving them by hand makes you smart.
The key to teaching division to young students that have only recently been introduced to more complicated forms of mathematics is to make the student feel involved with the process, whilst finding it enjoyable at the same time. Math worksheets are effective, but there are other ways you can effectively teach math. This is pretty much the generic form of teaching that proves to be most effective amongst children and young students. No matter how many times you get the child to fill out a division work sheet, or produce division assignments, there is no promise of that child being able to continually deliver with an ability to successfully perform division problems. You need to ensure that the child can relate to the division technique and be taught in a way that they actually respond to. Mindlessly filling out worksheets and booklets often proves to be worthless to many children.
