Day 28 – Being Aware of Mistakes

Today I let my non AP students loose to find some derivatives with the limit definition. Since they already know the power rule and the big idea of derivatives, they knew what “answer” they were supposed to get to, which was super helpful in getting them to find their own mistakes. About halfway through class, we paused and collected a list of common mistakes that people made. I hope by making them aware of mistakes that they will be able to avoid them better.
