ab: Summary: The submitted contribution is concerned with analysis of errors
made by students when solving context-based mathematical tasks. The
contribution comprises evaluation of four tasks which were designed by
the authors of the contribution within project KEGA 015 UKF-4/2012 in
Slovakia. Altogether 56 first and second year students of primary
teacher training university master programme were asked to solve the
tasks. The errors in the student solutions were identified and
classified primarily following Newman’s error categories and
additional categories suggested by the authors of the contribution, who
furthermore propose 13 error subtypes. In total 127 inappropriate
solutions of the four tasks were included in the evaluation. The
authors present a sign scheme and a correspondence map of student
errors based on statistical analysis. As evidenced by the analysis,
students make similar errors when solving tasks of the same type. The
objective of the authors is to identify accurately and classify the
error types occurring in student solutions.
