Are you looking to give your students a challenge and make them think about WHY you might need to multiply a fraction by a whole number? These word problem error analysis problems will really cause your students to think deeply about multiplying fractions by a whole number.
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 procedures and processes.
This download includes 10 error analysis problems that practice multiplying fractions by whole numbers in word problems. Students should also be familiar with changing improper fractions to mixed numbers, as well as basic addition and subtraction.
Looking to save paper? The last page of work contains the same 10 questions on one piece of paper – great for task cards or gluing into notebooks!
This product perfectly aligns with 4th grade Common Core standard:
“Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.”
These tasks would be great to use during guided math centers, whole-group centers, or independent practice.
