Product Description
This pack includes FIVE situational problems that address common misconceptions students have with addition and subtraction of whole numbers and decimals.

Misconceptions addressed are:
- Regrouping
- Borrowing across zeros
- Lining up numbers when adding/subtracting decimals
- Increase / Decrease
- Reading carefully to find ALL information needed

Students are given a situation, then "he" and "she" (and sometimes "pup") give an answer. It is up to the students to figure out who is correct and WHY, but also understand who is incorrect and where they went wrong.

I hope this leads to meaningful learning and conversations in your classroom!!
