This creative take on error analysis has been a top seller in my store for years. Your kids will love the fun format where they have to 'prove it'. This is a set of 35 math question activities that can be used for whole group, independent work, centers, during math workshop, or however else you would like to use them. They are called "Yes, No, Prove it!" The question pack will work perfectly as a means of seeing if students are understanding the topic you are studying. It would make a perfect independent Friday activity to see if they are understanding the week's concept. When a student has to 'prove' something, you can really tell what math concepts they are grasping.

**NOTE- you can now purchase this pack as part of my 4th grade math mega bundle.

In my classroom this year, I will be using this as a weekly error analysis math center called, "Yes No... Prove It!"

This is most suitable for 4th grade, but I have marked it for third grade and fifth grade because you may have stronger or weaker students in those grades.

Here's how it works.....Each math organizer sheet consists of a basic math question (see the preview picture above for a sample). The students will then answer yes or no to the question, they will circle any basic operations they had to use (add, subtract, multiply, divide), they will then prove their answer using some suggested methods such as pictures, words, labels, charts, etc., they will tell the math concepts covered in the question (such as division, fractions, place value, etc), and finally they will tell their findings in a complete sentence.

Some of the topics covered are: place value, greater than/less than, decimals, money, elapsed time, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measurement, and rounding.

I have also included 4 blank pages for you to write your own questions if you would like. You can't type on the form, but I did want to provide you the option to make some of your own if you wanted to.
