Spot the Error Math Fails – Can You Find the Mistake?

10 real world math fails, mistakes, math errors

Round 2 – These are so much fun for my students, that I had to put together another group of 10 Real World Math Fails. I tell my students daily to check their answers- does their answer make sense, especially in the context of their problem? The following pictures are some examples of people who have not checked their answers in the real world. My students love seeing these, finding the errors and laughing at the mistakes adults made.
