Skills Drills: A Self-Correcting Math Proficiency Game. Technical Note No. 28.
Munger, Fredi; Shader, Holly
This is an effective drill and practice activity that does not use consumable materials. It does not teach math facts, algorithms or concepts. It provides immediate feedback to the learner and can be easily modified for use in many curriculum areas. It is self correcting because the student can identify errors without assistance and provides skills practice materials. The materials can be used with lower primary children once they can identify numerals 1 through 12. Lower grades have used the material to reinforce basic number facts, shapes, and sizes. Older students have used the same material to identify equivalences of fractions, apply division and multiplication algorithms, and work computations involving currency and time. The procedures for preparing master pattern sheets, question sheets, and solution card blanks and the instructions to make a "Skills Drills" box and tiles are included. (KR)
