Departmental Workshops - Structured professional development activities   use of mistakes and misconceptions to deepen understanding

Use of mistakes and misconceptions to deepen understanding

This workshop is designed to encourage teachers to make effective use of the common mistakes and misconceptions students make during lesson time. It explores some of the reasons students make mistakes and how a teacher can use these to enhance their students’ learning. The workshop models how teachers could begin to address some algebraic misconceptions. This approach to developing lessons focusing on misconceptions could be replicated with other areas of the mathematics curriculum.
