Product Description
Are you looking for a new (and dare I say, fun??) way for your students to demonstrate their mastery of comparing fractions? These word problem error analysis problems will really cause your students to THINK about how and why you might need to compare fractions in real-world situations.

Error analysis problems are a great way to check your students' understanding of a concept. Instead of just solving the same problems again and again on a worksheet, they have to use their critical thinking skills to determine where, if anywhere, the example student(s) went wrong. This forces them to think outside of the box and develop a deeper understanding of the WHY behind the procedures and processes.

This download includes ten error analysis problems that practice comparing fractions. The problems use mixed strategies; specifically:

♦ Common Denominators
♦ Common Numerators
♦ Fraction Bars
♦ Number Lines
♦ Benchmark Fractions
♦ Finding common denominators

On my answer key, I have provided an example of a student response, but other answers may be acceptable as well.

Looking to save paper? The last page of work contains the same 10 questions on one piece of paper – great for task cards or gluing into notebooks!

This product perfectly aligns with 4th grade Common Core standard: 4.NF.A.2: Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.”

These tasks would be great to use during guided math centers, whole-group centers, or independent practice.
