PDF | 9 pages|Grades: 5 - 6

Find the mistake with one-, two-, and multi-step problems.

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 are needed to solve the problem.

8 problems include whole numbers and all operations.

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

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