A worksheet is an instructional tool that allows a learner to put concepts and ideas into practice. A worksheet may be used to help a student practice a mathematical process, connect ideas, review key points from a reading and more.

Worksheets are used for a variety of learning needs. In mathematics, worksheets are commonly used to give students the chance to practice mathematical operations under a variety of conditions. They may also be used to provide a framework for students to identify key events after reading a historical text and then to learn how those events led to the eventual outcome. In business, a worksheet can provide a framework for the learner to pull together key data points to evaluate a situation and guide decision-making.
