Perimeter and Area Tasks
Engage your students with 14 Perimeter and Area Error Analysis Tasks! I began creating Error Analysis sheets for my students after reading about Marzano’s New Taxonomy, or Systems of Knowledge. Under Analysis he lists Error Analysis as an exceptional to promote thinking and learning.
My students LOVE error analysis, and I have even seen kids take error analysis tasks out to recess because they are determined to figure out what error took place, or the perfect wording to describe what happened. Some of these are tricky, but the kids get a sense of satisfaction out of figuring out what went wrong!
Answer keys with POSSIBLE answers have been included, and the last page was left blank for you to create your own based on errors students in your class are making. You can use these as warm ups with the whole class, as an assessment, math centers, or enrichment for early finishers! Have fun!
Each error analysis task takes up an entire page so that students have room to work and justify their answers. You can also print them four to page to cut down on copies.
14 Pages of Perimeter and Area Error Analysis Tasks and 14 Answer Key Pages. Blank Error Analysis page for you to include your own errors.
