Want to encourage CRITICAL THINKING? Supervisors LOVE this! Here are 7 pages of mistakes that actual students have made in solving math problems. After going into many math classrooms and seeing the same mistakes pop up, I created these Misconceptions documents for the teachers to use so that students can analyze the errors. Students identify mistakes and correctly complete the problems.

Some topics include: solving one and two step equations, plotting numbers on a number line, coordinate plane, renaming fractions as decimals, operations with integers, distributive property, and operations with fractions.

The teachers are using them as warm-ups. They have become such a hit, the principal has asked me to create them weekly. If you like these, try Set B in my other listing. If you'd like the bundle of Set A & B together, click here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Middle-School-Math-Students-Fix-Math-MistakesErrors-Bundle

If you'd like the Word version of the file, just message me and I'll email it to you. Answer key is included.

Hi Laura,
Ha ha...I think I might need to take the advice I give to my students...read carefully! I just saw the word "and" in the problem (even though you put it in bold letters). I apparently just skimmed over it. Thanks for taking the time to correct me graciously.

I have my eye on some of your other work.

Thanks again,
Cheryl

I just purchased this item and was disappointed that a key was not included. Do you have a key?
