Boom Cards create opportunities in secondary mathematics for students to develop error analysis skills.
When developing mathematics Boom Cards consider disambiguating multiple ways to represent an answer. Fill in the blanks allow multiple representations of an answer. For fractions, consider having separate numerator and denominator entry blanks. Disambiguation helps both you and the student conduct more specific and precise error analysis.
When creating a card, you can use any characters that can be typed into the text edit box. This means you can use symbols and exponents and notations. For extensive disambiguation, manually arrange multiple text edit boxes.
For fill in the blank answers, students can type many symbols, and Boom also has a “math” on screen keyboard to help out.
