Are you looking to give your students a challenge and make them think about WHY you might need to change minutes to seconds, or seconds to hours?
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 10 error analysis problems that practice converting between seconds, minutes, and hours. Students should also be familiar with the basic operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
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:
“Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.”
These tasks would be great to use during guided math centers, whole-group centers, or independent practice.
