Want to encourage CRITICAL THINKING? Supervisors LOVE this!
Standards for Mathematical Practice:
*Reason abstractly & quantitatively
*Construct viable arguments & critique the reasoning of others
*Attend to precision
Here are 7 pages of mistakes that actual students have made in solving math problems. After going into many math classrooms and seeing the same mistakes pop up, I created these Misconceptions documents for the teachers to use so that students can analyze the errors. Students identify mistakes and correctly complete the problems.
Some topics include: solving one and two step equations, plotting numbers on a number line, coordinate plane, renaming fractions as decimals, operations with integers, distributive property, and operations with fractions.
The teachers are using them as warm-ups. They have become such a hit, the principal has asked me to create them weekly. If you like these, try Set B in my other listing.
