Engaging MATH Worksheets, Tasks and Activities
Have your students apply their understanding of SCIENTIFIC NOTATION with this ERROR ANALYSIS activity. It includes 10 real-world 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.Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts you have taught. 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.This activity perfect for CLASSWORK, HOMEWORK, MATH CENTERS, and PAIR/GROUP WORK.
