The Art of Undoing Wrong Mathematics in the Classroom.
Cherkas, Barry M.
Primus, v2 n1 p1-8 Mar 1992
Emphasizes, and illustrates with examples, the importance of taking classroom time to rectify incorrect student thinking by immediately undoing, or unraveling, students' misconceptions, errors, or misapplications. When this process is cultivated without a judgmental attitude on the part of the teacher, students' confidence is inspired and independent thinking skills are fostered. (JJK)
