This worksheet contains 6 problems multiplying mixed numbers times fractions/wholes/mixed numbers. Each problem shows several steps used to solve the problem and each problem contains an error. These errors are ones that I've seen 5th graders make in multiplying mixed numbers.
There is one packet included where the problems are solved using the standard algorithm (convert the mixed number(s) to an improper fraction and then multiply). There is a separate packet where the problems are solved using partial products method (often used with area models). You can select the method that is most appropriate for your students.
Students must identify and name the error and then solve the problem correctly. This resource contains several different types of errors, making it a great critical thinking activity. It can be used as an early-finisher task, in class as a worksheet, as homework or as part of stations.
