Math worksheets don't promote communication and collaboration _ Math worksheets are often assigned as an independent activity, however research indicates that communication and discourse are needed to build a deep understanding of math topics. Students need opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in different ways and to build their own connections. This involves communicating their ideas, listening to the ideas of others, arguing a viewpoint, describing, and explaining. Math worksheets are rarely used as a catalyst for conversation. Instead of assigning worksheets, find activities that encourage discourse, such as "number talks," or collaborative group work. During the session, be sure to require students to explain their thinking and listen to the strategies and thinking of their peers.
From research, it has been noted that very easy worksheets encourages students to be less serious in their academics and it also makes the students to start losing focus. Reading comprehension worksheets should be designed in a way that will make the students to do the following after reading the test. The students should be able to get reference from the passage. They should be tested in the worksheet for scope assimilation. The worksheet should examine the students on the ability to recall details. Meaning of word vocabulary should also be tested by the comprehension worksheet.
