Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching provides free access to MEP Help Modules.
Ilan Samson and David Burghes do expositions on misconceptions in
people's understanding of mathematics which ultimately give rise to
errors. The authors have identified 24 of those most commonly found and
of these, the first 8 are listed . The others will follow as they become
available. Each of the documents to which these titles are linked
provides an explanation of how the misconception
arises so easily, together with some exercises aimed at reinforcing the
correction needed. It is hoped that a study of the reason, together
with practice of the exercises, will help to eliminate these errors.
