7) A lot of effort goes in generating printable maths lessons for children of all ages· Equations have been a source of great confusion for most children and these can be easily learnt by solving the worksheet pages· The worksheets can also be prepared according to the needs of the child· The customised work papers can have a limited number of problems’ a predicted font size and a topic of interest·

Math worksheets are often assigned as an independent activity’ however research indicates that communication and discourse are needed to build a deep understanding of math topics· Students need opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in different ways and to build their own connections· This involves communicating their ideas’ listening to the ideas of others’ arguing a viewpoint’ describing’ and explaining· Math worksheets are rarely used as a catalyst for conversation· Instead of assigning worksheets’ find activities that encourage discourse’ such as "number talks’" or collaborative group work· During the session’ be sure to require students to explain their thinking and listen to the strategies and thinking of their peers·
