Understanding mathematical errors is important for improving learning. In order to map the pattern of studies related to the mathematical errors, this study used qualitative approach with systematic meta-synthesis method. Data collection conducted in this research using documentation techniques by reviewing and summarizing the results of similar research. The studies included in this research were generated from 5 theses of bachelor and master degree of elementary school major in Universitas Negeri Malang. The results showed that there are eight types of errors: (1) conceptual; (2) procedural; (3) problem solving; (4) understanding of problems; (5) converting problem sentences into the mathematical sentences; (6) computational; (7) planning; and (8) implementing the settlement plan. In addition, other findings such as student problem solving solutions will be discussed in this paper.
