Title: The Most Common Errors in Undergraduate Mathematics
Alternate Title: Common Errors in College Math
Url: https://math.vanderbilt.edu/schectex/commerrs/
Creator: Schechter, Eric
Publisher: Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Mathematics
Description: Both students and teachers of undergraduate mathematics courses are likely to find some useful insights on this Web site. As the old saying goes, it is best to hear things straight from the horse\'s mouth; indeed, The Most Common Errors in Undergraduate Mathematics was compiled by a math professor at Vanderbilt University. It contains many observations about unwarranted generalizations, algebra mistakes, ambiguous notation, and communication errors that are frequently committed by students and teachers. This site would be useful in any math classroom including those in Developmental Math courses. Despite being funny at times, all of the errors cited have probably been experienced by anyone who has enrolled in or taught such courses. The author welcomes contributions.
