Goofus is back with a more What Went Wrong activities. Goofus makes careless mistakes, and your students get to analyze and evaluate his work to find his mistakes. Then, after finding the mistakes, students must show Goofus the correct solution to each problem. I usually have my students explain in words what went wrong as well. One column shows Goofus' work and a second column is a blank space your students to provide the correct solution. I encourage students to highlight or circle where Goofus' mistake is located if it can be noted in the work. There are eight activity sheets. Each sheet has 3 problems.
4.NF.1 Equivalent Fractions
4.NF.2 Comparing Fractions
4.NF.3 Decomposing Fractions
4.NF.3 Adding/Subtracting Fractions
4.NF.4 Multiplying Fractions by Whole Numbers
These are great for classwork, independent work, centers, homework, exit-tickets, or morning work.
