#### Sticky star programme

In the old days it was called rote learning and it was boring. Now 'practice makes perfect' is back in fashion because computers can make each exercise look quite different each time it is started.

There is really no substitute for doing maths exercises over and over again. The first time it is confusing for the students, the second time they begin to remember the rules, the third time it is starting to stick ... and so on. Practice makes perfect.
