I call mistakes such as the one above Mathematical Blasphemies or MB for short. The inertial appeal of such mistakes for a typical math student is incredible. As instructors we must address these MBs with a variety of tools. One such tool that I use is to put together a set of multiple choice questions that I call Clickerisms, whereby students use clickers to select the most accurate answer amongst a set of MB choices. A few of these Clickerisms that address various MBs will be presented in future blog entries (ISA!)

Meanwhile share your own thoughts on how you address MBs. Thank you
