Engage your students with 25 Place Value Error Analysis Tasks covering a wide variety of place value concepts, including expanded form, standard form, number form, rounding, comparing, place, value, and more!
Each place value error analysis includes a place for the student to explain the mistake, share a strategy or a rule to prevent making the same mistake again, and rework the problem on their own.
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 analyses out to recess because they are determined the 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 I have included a blank error analysis page for you to create your own based on errors students in your class are making. You can use these place value error analysis as warm ups with the whole class, as an assessment, math centers, or enrichment for early finishers! Have fun!
There is one place value error analysis activity per page. If your students don't need quite so much room to work, you can print the pages 2 or 4 to a page to save paper! :)
