Have you ever noticed how many K math content websites are devoted to math worksheets? There seems to be an increase in websites that cater to desperate teachers and parents by offering fast’ free "worksheet generation"’ free fractions worksheets’" etc·

Math worksheets rarely ask students to think critically or creatively· They usually present multiple examples of the same problem type with the hope of reinforcing a skill or procedure· They do not challenge students to use higher order thinking skills such as comparing’ analyzing’ deducing’ and synthesizing· These skills are built through activities in which students discover concepts’ explore ideas’ test a hypothesis’ solve a problem’ and discuss their thinking with their peers· Exploring concepts and problems in many different ways builds interest and promotes critical thinking·
