Error Analysis of Fraction Arithmetic-Selected Case Studies.
Shaw, Doris J.; And Others
This report describes the test performances of 26 students who displayed a variety of erroneous rules in completing a 48-item test of fraction addition problems, constructed to diagnose at least 88 projected erroneous rules. Cases were selected for their potential usefulness in designing and implementing an error-diagnostic testing system and in developing appropriate remedial instruction. Each case describes specific examples of mislearning, information obtained through teacher-student interviews, remedial instruction, and the results from a posttest. The report concludes with several conjectures about the sources and causes of some of the misconceptions. (Author/MNS)
