ArchiMath Blog

What is a student workbook?

Student workbook is an education material including components that support learning. Their needs should be satisfied by benefiting from some additional materials in order to make their learning permanent.

They are used for solving extra problems and concepts which students have already studied from the textbooks.

The term workbook is also used to describe other compilations of questions that require the reader to complete scratch-work when dealing with higher-level mathematics.

What are the benefits of math worksheets?

  • Critical Thinking. Practicing math worksheets enable kids to apply and enhance their problem-solving skills
  • Practice Skills Like: Attention, Concentration, and Handwriting
  • Interactive Learning – using online materials
  • Facilitates Time-Management
  • Work Well With Children Of Any Age
  • Understanding Concepts
  • Practice and Revision
  • Gain Focus.

Workbooks are able to be flexible with the child’s current academic level. If your child is performing above grade level and could use a challenge, pick up an advanced book full of above grade level content like ours.

Why they are important?

Although usually smaller and lighter than textbooks, workbooks serve as an extension in classroom lecture on large class size, determine the quality of teaching and learning topics, and facilitate homework. Math courses with a class size of hundreds of students, which teachers have difficulty to facilitate a good interaction with the students, workbooks effectively filled the inadequacy. Workbooks, being a condensed course outlines from a standard textbook, serve as a teachers’ roadmap in classroom discussion and guide for the students on what topics to follow next. Further, workbook facilitates homework for the students to study at home and allow the teachers to monitor their progress.

Using Workbooks Successfully At Home

Workbooks are only effective if your child is using them.

After you have them, make working in them a part of your family’s routine. Often, carving out time for school work at home may be a challenge.

Depending on your child’s age and attention, you can encourage workbook time for 15-45 minutes per day, 3-5 days per week. For extra incentive, and to combat the inevitable groans that can happen to even the best student, offer a special treat for every book completed or time goal met.
