Hey all,

I know that some of you use this site in the classroom or with students. If you do use this site with students, I’d like to hear a bit about it. Could you either drop a comment or email me at mathmistakes@gmail.com to let me know how you’re using the site?

    Thank you for sharing this blog. I have just recently found this blog. I am using it because I am new to teaching pre-algebra and it is helping me discover misconception, common mistakes, and predict student responses. Knowing common misconceptions helps me prepare lessons and pose what-if questions to students.

    I’m being asked to promote opinion writing across the curriculum. I’m thinking that students looking at student work would be good material for Math Practice #3 “Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.”

      That’s a great idea

    I came across the blog over the holidays and have shared it with our teachers as a way of examining common misconceptions and determining patterns of thinking. I plan on posting some examples teachers have shared.
