It is important for students to analyze the errors they make in their classwork and on assessments. Students are able to compare their work to the correct answer provided and see where they made their error.
On the second page, the teacher can type a similar math problem so that the student has the opportunity to try answering it again while correcting their original error.
Great to use when conferencing with students during math. Allows for students improve their math talk and writing about math, as well.
I have my students do this once a week, usually on Friday, and I use questions from previously administered assessments or questions from their Go Math! workbook.
Easy to differentiate- just group students by their errors and create different error analysis worksheets for them to complete. Students can work independently, pairs, or small groups to analyze their errors.
Could also be used for other subjects.
