Avoiding common mistakes

Classic all time mistakes on maths tests

Download made up homework answers that contain common mistakes for level 2 students to mark. This one is straight out of Geoff Petty’s ways of teaching without talking. The worksheet contains some made up answers to a series of questions. The students work in pairs to find out what has gone wrong, and to provide the mythical student with some feedback.

The activity takes about 10 minutes, and you can learn a lot by listening to the students working out what has actually gone wrong. The theme in this worksheet is ‘read the question’.
