In Math, people often answer the wrong question or they make a small mistake -- I have named these fuzzy errors -- rather than not knowing the material or making a BIG mistake, these fuzzy errors add up to a lot of points!!
Often students are tricked by good wrong answers such as the power of zero (it is always 1) or exponent rules or area vs perimeter. Multiple choice questions are deliberately designed with distractors -- answers that look good but are incorrect. Studying multiple choice questions can strengthen metacognitive skills and also boost scores, confidence and enjoyment of Math!
