Workbooks and computer programs play an important role in supporting children’s retention of facts but if children do not understand the concept these approaches alone are not going fill the gaps.  This is because they are often seen as the quick and easy way to teach but the most recent research is clearly indicating that effective assessment and working at the correct level using the appropriate materials is much more effective. This helps ensure that children understand the concept and helps develop their use of the appropriate mathematical language.
