Engaging MATH Worksheets, Tasks and Activities
Have your students apply their understanding of PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM 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.
Whats Included:This resource includes 10 real-world PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM 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.
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.
