Day 57: Practicing MC
My AP Stats students say that one of the hardest things for them are the multiple choice questions. After our Station Review for the last chapter test, they requested a chance to do the same thing (but more often) to practice multiple choice. They expressed how valuable it was to discuss the questions with their peers because they got better insights into how to approach them and the choices given. I think math multiple choice questions are often more challenging because it is easy to have distractors represent common mistakes….and of course, students bite at them. So I began to put together sets of 5 MC questions for our probability unit. I think the trickiest thing is finding good, representative questions. Where do you find good MC questions?
