Are you looking for a new way to check your students' understanding of the partial products method of multiplication? Tired of the same old worksheets? Look no further!
Error analysis problems are a great way to check your students' understanding of a concept. Instead of just solving the same problems again and again on a worksheet, they have to use their critical thinking skills to determine where, if anywhere, the example student(s) went wrong. This forces them to think outside of the box and develop a deeper understanding of the WHY behind the procedure and processes.

This download includes five error analysis problems that practice the partial products method of multiplication. This method is a great “bridge” from the area model to the standard algorithm, because it still stresses place value but has the students practice more of the traditional format. There are two 2X2 problems and three 4X1 problems.
This perfectly aligns with 4th grade Common Core standard: NBT.5: Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
These tasks would be great to use during guided math centers, whole-group centers, or independent practice.
