While most errors are related to the process of the operation, I have included a few that address skills such as simplifying the answer and writing whole number fractions correctly when they appear in equations. The errors range from the most simple of errors to more abstract errors, making this perfect for differentiation!

Digital Access: This resource now includes Digital Access via Google Slides.

Each fraction error analysis includes a place for the student to explain the mistake, share a strategy or a rule to prevent making the same mistake again, and rework the problem on their own.

I began creating Error Analysis sheets for my students after reading about Marzano’s New Taxonomy, or Systems of Knowledge. Under Analysis he lists Error Analysis as an exceptional to promote thinking and learning.

My students LOVE error analysis, and I have even seen kids take error analyses out to recess because they are determined the figure out what error took place, or the perfect wording to describe what happened. Some of these are tricky, but the kids get a sense of satisfaction out of figuring out what went wrong!

Answer keys with POSSIBLE answers have been included, and I have included a blank error analysis page for you to create your own based on errors students in your class are making. You can use these error analysis as warm ups with the whole class, as an assessment, math centers, or enrichment for early finishers! Have fun!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
