  • Engaging students in discussion of errors can deepen their mathematical understanding by compelling them to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others (Standard for Mathematical Practice #3). This session will use video and simulation to explore specific teaching practices for leveraging mathematical errors as springboards for learning.
