Have your students apply their understanding of REAL NUMBERS 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 REAL NUMBERS 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
✔ rational numbers
✔ powers and exponents
✔ powers of monomials
✔ negative exponents
✔ scientific notation
This resource is included in my 8th Grade Common Core MEGA-BUNDLE!
Feedback on this resource:
♥ This is an excellent product! It really made the kids have to think through the answers :) Thank you!
♥ This is a great resource and will be very helpful this year taking my students to the next level of problem solving. Thank you.
♥ Excellent! Really enables the students to think and review what someone else did wrong. Thank you!
Common /core Aligned aligned with :
* 8.NS.1- Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion;
* 8.NS.2 - Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions.
* 8.EE.1 - Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions.
* 8.EE.2 - Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number.
* 8.EE.3 - Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.
* 8.EE.4 - Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used.
* MP3 - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
