Description Students make different kinds of mistakes while doing math. Research has shown that each kind of mistake warrants a different response from the teacher to best advance learning. In this webinar, the presenter will share information about different kinds of mistakes, selecting strategic responses depending on the mistake, and research related to mistakes and student learning. Mistakes are inevitable in math, thus knowing how to exploit mistakes as learning opportunities has potential to promote greater equity in the classroom. Join us to learn how to use mathematical mistakes for learning’s sake!
Goals Improve instructional responses to mathematical errors.
