Why is this mistake attractive to the student? How could you make it unattractive?

The submitter of this mistake reports that the student is a “high flyer.”

- What is this student’s confusion?
- Why made this mistake so tempting? After all, if a student just doesn’t understand “slope” there are a million things that they could do wrong. Why this one?

Thanks to Jeff de Varona for the submission. Go check out his blog and follow him on twitter.
