Error analysis problems are a great way to check your students' understanding of a concept. Instead of just solving many of the same problems on a worksheet, they have to use their critical thinking skills to determine where, if anywhere, the example student went wrong. This forces them to think outside of the box and develop a deeper understanding of the WHY behind the procedure and processes.
This activity is a quick check of the students' understanding of steps for using the area model to solve multiplication problems. I used this as a ticket out the door but you could also use it in centers or in whole-group instruction. I have copied the activity three times on one sheet to save paper :).
Aligns with the standard: NBT.5: Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
