The Mistake Game

(Not my idea.) have to include at least one intentional mistake in your work. You can also include as many unintentional mistakes as you’d like.



  1. Make a board modeling [something]. Embed one conceptual mistake.
  2. Present your board to the class. Explain your work, etc.
  3. Audience: ask probing questions.

Let's practice

John was the first to cross the finish line; but Bob couldn’t find it.

Pick one:

  • Balance a checkbook
  • The elecetoral college
  • Driving rules
  • Something else?
