PDF | 11 pages|Grades: 5 - 7

Find the mistake with decimals and all operations.

Each of the problems has been solved, but the solutions contain mistakes! Students find the mistakes and then explain and correct them.

Errors include:

• making an arithmetic error
• choosing the wrong operation
• using one operation when two is needed to solve the problem
• using the extra information in the solution.

8 problems include decimals and all operations.

Use during guided maths, during tutoring or intervention, with small groups or in centres.

This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, an answer key and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
