Worksheets: Wretched or Wonderful?

In this course Jon & Kyle outline different styles of worksheets while giving you insight on how to design them to maximize student thinking. You’ll learn when you should use a worksheet, what types of problems should go on the worksheet, and when you should ditch the worksheet altogether.

How are you using them in your math class?

 Are your worksheets enhancing your math instruction or limiting student thinking?

 Have you ditched using all worksheets?

 The use of worksheets in math class has become synonymous with “lazy teaching” but we have a confession …..

…. we use worksheets on a regular basis!

 We believe it’s HOW you use your worksheets that makes all the difference!
