Day 91 – Mistake Game Variation

Today, we did a Mistake Game variation for implicit differentiation in my non AP class. I had them make up e solution to a problem and make a mistake in it on the whiteboards. Then, instead of having students present their solutions, I had them go around, look at the boards and try to find the mistakes. This worked so much better for a topic like this because students could really concentrate and stare at the solution up close. I also felt like so many more students were engaged in this as opposed to when we do it as a whole class. I am definitely going to try this again, but now I'm looking for a way to successfully reflect on Mistake Game in class and wrap up what they learn from the game.
