Your students can act as detectives as they review solutions to various problems in all of the domains from the Common Core Standards from Grade 4.
Flawed reasoning questions help to deepen the understanding of mathematical concepts. Use these task cards for a simple, yet effective strategy known as “Get the Goof!” Present the cards to students in which there is a mistake in the solution. Students work together to identify the “goof” and then they work to fix it.
Since brain research indicates that mistakes grow your brain, this strategy will help your students to appreciate the value of mistakes in the learning process.
As students analyze the mistakes and critique the reasoning of others (MP3) it will lead them to developing new connections between various mathematical concepts.
An answer key is included for each of the 24 task cards.
Other grade level task cards coming soon!
