Product Description

Tired of students making the same errors over and over again? Frustrated with students copying the wrong numbers from the problem? Bothered when you ask a student to check their work and they just erase the whole thing and start over?

Start making students' mistakes more meaningful with this lesson, practice activity, and homework assignment!

This math error analysis lesson outlines the three types of errors made in math class (careless, computational, and conceptual), how to identify them, and strategies for avoiding the same mistakes on future assignments.

Product is a pdf file that includes:

  • 2 pages of notes (great for a student reference sheet)
  • Four practice examples with answer keys (Note: The examples in this lesson are from the 4th grade CCSS but can be used at any level to illustrate the three types of errors.)
  • A homework assignment sheet (can also be used to make students do test corrections in a meaningful way)
