Misconnections

Misconnections are concepts in both subject areas that exemplify misconceptions, contradictions, or common errors. For example "soil" in science is used in a loose way to mean the homogeneous composition of clay, silt, and sand, whereas in mathematics "soil" is an exact fractional model of these parts represented distinctly.

  

How do I identify misconnections in my lesson?

Use the links below to see an example of how two teachers, Mr. Jake Hammons and Ms. Darla Michaelidis, go about identifying misconnections for a correlated lesson. These videos are facilitated by Dr. Selina Vasquez-Mireles, a math faculty member of Texas State University.
