To develop deep conceptual understanding, students need to be able to justify and explain their strategies and, most importantly, revise their thinking when faced with information that challenges prior beliefs. This is why it’s so important to make the most of misconceptions in math class.
In this webinar, Dr. Mark Ellis will explore ways to anticipate, elicit, and make use of student misconceptions to deepen student’s understanding of mathematics. Attendees will learn:
- Common student mathematics misconceptions and how to spot them
- How misconceptions are created
- Productive strategies for eliciting and addressing misconceptions
This free event will take place on Thursday, April 16, 2020 from 2-3 p.m. EDT. Registration is required.
