# Math Worksheets Algebraic Expressions Class

Published at Saturday, April 13th, 2019 - 02:42:53 AM. Math Worksheets. By Sonja Bergström.

There are several standard exercises which train students to convert percentages, decimals and fractions. Converting percentage to decimals for example is actually as simple as moving the decimal point two places to the left and losing the percent sign "%." Thus 89% is equal to 0.89. Expressed in fraction, that would be 89/100. When you drill kids to do this often enough, they learn to do conversion almost instinctively.

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.
