In my morning session I was introduced to this nice whiteboard activity from @kellyoshea. The simple premise is that students are given a problem and asked to write a solution that has one intentional mistake on a whiteboard. Everyone else plays the "Mistake Game" to find the mistake. See all the details at the link below. Thanks to @Stoodle @PiSpeak for this one
