Using the Consolidation feature. You can determine whether or not the link will be interactive when creating the consolidation. This method provides the greatest level of detail in the summary worksheet. You can choose between any function, not just the sum function. For example, you could create an average of several divisions in a summary worksheet. Some of the disadvantages of this method are that the worksheets must be identical. Although it is not impossible, it is difficult to use consolidation across workbooks.
Engagement entails much more than rote repetition of a procedure. Math worksheets tend to present very similar problem types over and over, leading to mundane practice of disassociated skills. For students who understand the material and successfully complete an assignment, another worksheet becomes meaningless. On the other hand, for the students who don't understand the material, an alternative method of instruction is what's needed. Another worksheet simply adds to the student's frustration, or worse, contributes to a belief that "I'll never understand math." A cute image or a "fill_in_the_blanks" riddle does nothing to increase engagement or learning (and let's face it, those riddles are not funny!). Instead, teachers need to increase engagement by providing students with exercises in which they discover patterns and relationships, solve problems, or think creatively about math relationships.
