Mathematics CPD. A Professional Development Module from the Standards Unit: Improving Learning in Mathematics series. PD2 - Learning from mistakes and misconceptions
To encourage participants to:
• reflect on the nature and causes of learners’ mistakes and
• consider ways in which we might use these mistakes and
misconceptions constructively to promote learning.
Two excellent resources from the standards unit which have loads of mistakes and misconceptions. The powerpoint highlights these misconceptions and talks through how to teach a pupil not to have that misconception and asks the teacher to reflect on their teaching practice to stop these misconceptions happening in the future.
