Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering errors in human cognition. I use this for my AP Psychology class as part of my Cognition and Language unit.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is guaranteed to capture student attention. Each slide has rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
Fixation (Mental Set and Functional Fixedness)
Additionally, students take a quiz to determine how overconfident they are in their judgments and also engage in an activity to see how their representativeness heuristic affects how much they perceive the incidence of various "killers" to be (such as lung cancer, murder, etc.)
