This week’s teaching strategy:

Polar Opposites – Ask the class to examine two written-out versions of a

theory (or corollary, law of nature, etc.), where one is incorrect, such as the

opposite or a negation of the other. In deciding which is correct, students

will have to examine the problem from all angles.

(from Kevin Yee, Interactive Techniques, 2007)
