PROBABILITY Word Problems - Error Analysis
Have your students apply their understanding of PROBABILITY with these ERROR ANALYSIS activities.
Benefits of Math Error Analysis:
Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts you have taught.
This resource includes 10 real-world PROBABILITY word problems that are solved incorrectly. Students have to IDENTIFY THE ERROR, provide the CORRECT SOLUTION and share a helpful STRATEGY for solving the problem. An ANSWER KEY has also been provided with examples of possible answers. Be sure to download the sample for a full overview of what you get.
How to Use:
When I present this activity to my students, I tell them that these are errors that students from my other class made and I need their help to correct them. Students LOVE correcting other students mistakes. Students can use these activities with a partner, as a warm-up , as classwork, homework, in math centers or group work.

Common Core Aligned:
*7.SP.5- Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood.
* 7.SP.6 - Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.
* 7.SP.7 - Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies;
* 7.SP.8 - Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
*Mathematics Practice Standard 3 - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
