Error Analysis Math Activities for the Classroom

Error Analysis Math Activities for the Classroom

Have you ever wanted to provide your students with rigorous math activities that would require them to do all of the thinking instead of guessing or waiting for someone else to share the answer? 

Have you ever stood in front of your math class waiting for math discourse to start and participation that never came?

Yes, me too!

That is why I designed these rigorous and highly engaging math error analysis activities that kids LOVE! My own fifth grader students would ask for these tasks every single day! #teacherwin

I have experienced firsthand how these error analysis activities have turned my math classroom into a critical thinking hub where students figure out problems and defend their math thinking independently

With these math tasks, your students will solve rigorous, standards-aligned problems and then decide if they agree or disagree with the solution presented to them. These problems reinforce more than math...they also strengthen reading, writing, and debating skills, too! 

And with the super fun agree and disagree cards included, you will see a big increase in participation.

These packs include everything you need to start making a big impact in your math classroom:

  • agree disagree participation cards
  • math discussion stems 
  • math discourse questions
  • standards-aligned error analysis problems in different formats to meet your specific needs: full-page format, task cards, PPT slideshow, and Google Slides™

These activities were designed to be used successfully in a variety of ways to help you save time planning and provide quality activities to your students at the same time:

  • morning work or bell ringer
  • whole-class math talk/discussion
  • math centers or stations
  • exit tickets
  • small group targeted instruction
  • math partner tasks
  • independent practice and reinforcement
  • formal or informal assessments
  • homework or classwork
  • test prep
  • distance learning

4th grade error analysis math

"This is a great resource to use in small groups at the kidney table, or as a whole class projecting it on the screen, or by breaking the whole class into small groups and having them work as teams. I am glad I bought the bundle. I am looking forward to using this in our measurement unit." - Robin

5th grade math error analysis

"Well thought of resource to review all math standards. This can be easily done after teaching each standard or as an end of year review. I am currently using this to review different concepts the last few weeks of schools and students love working together to agree or disagree." - Yolanda
