Math worksheets don't promote critical thinking _ 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.
What are the Features of a Worksheet? _ Worksheets provide Excel users with many features. The primary feature provided by worksheets is the ability to store edit and manipulate data in one central location. However, with the creation of worksheets users can now calculate many simple and complex math and financial problems as well as display their stored data with many unique custom charts and graphs.
