EXPRESSIONS Word Problems - Error Analysis

Have your students apply their understanding of EXPRESSIONS with this ERROR ANALYSIS activities.

Benefits of Math Error Analysis:
Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts you have taught.

Whats Included:
This resource includes 10 real-world EXPRESSIONS word problems that are solved incorrectly. Students have to IDENTIFY THE ERROR, provide the CORRECT SOLUTION and share a helpful STRATEGY for solving the problem. An ANSWER KEY has also been provided with examples of possible answers. Be sure to download the sample for a full overview of what you get.

How to Use:
When I present this activity to my students, I tell them that these are errors that students from my other class made and I need their help to correct them. Students LOVE correcting other students mistakes. Students can use these activities with a partner, as a warm-up , as classwork, homework, in math centers or group work.

Topics included:
✔ evaluating algebraic expressions
✔ writing algebraic expressions
✔ simplifying algebraic expressions
✔ adding linear expressions
✔ subtracting linear expressions
✔ factoring linear expressions

This resource is included in my EXPRESSIONS UNIT RESOURCE BUNDLE!
