Using Computational Errors in Diagnostic Teaching.
Engelhardt, Jon M.
Arithmetic Teacher, v29 n8 p16-19 Apr 1982
Four basic types of student errors in computation are noted and described. These are: (1) mechanical, (2) careless, (3) conceptual, and (4) procedural. It is felt many teachers deal with all errors as if they were of the unhabituated procedural type, with not enough attention given to other possibilities. (MP)
