Here are reasons why math worksheets don't work if you want students to understand math, enjoy math, and think mathematically. Math worksheets are not engaging. Numerous research studies have found that when students are actively engaged with the content, they have a much better chance of understanding and remembering what they have learned. Unfortunately, math worksheets tend to bore most students, especially those who need the most help in math.

Math worksheets don't provide immediate feedback _ Most teachers are familiar with the long delay between when students complete a worksheet, and when they get their correct page. Most don't get anything back until the next day or the next week. In the meantime, the students continue to practice incorrectly. It's no surprise that immediate feedback has been shown to increase student performance and diligence. Unfortunately, math worksheets have no mechanism for keeping a student from moving to the next problem until after they demonstrate understanding.
