How many kids in school have done their homework? Again this can be answered in several ways: in percentages, 70%; or in ratio, 7:10; Both of these mean out of ten kids in class there are seven good ones who did and three not-so-good ones who didn't. The bottom line is that kids learn math much better when it makes sense.
Worksheets also, when used properly, provide both the students and parent / tutor immediate feedback as to the child's progress. This means they can be used to point out areas where the student needs further reinforcement.
For example, since I want to make sure my students get accustomed to reviewing the various math concepts and standards we've learned all year, I have them practice regularly. I want them to get to a point where they are so familiar with grade level math content, that solving these types of problems becomes automatic.
Ratios and proportions are likewise wonderful math lessons with plenty of interesting practical applications. If three pans of pizza, one kilo of spaghetti, two buckets of chicken can properly feed 20 hungry friends, then how much pizza, spaghetti and chicken does mom need to prepare for birthday party with 30 kids?
Subtract 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers from 3- and 4-digit number with/without renaming.
