Have any of you seen Barry Cipra's book
Misteaks: and how to find them before the teacher does

and used it in class?

I think it's a wonderful book but I haven't found many ways to
incorporate it. Instead, I take the ideas from it (e.g. that you
should estimate the area of the region before finding the integral)
and teach them as the occasion arises (e.g. when a student makes a
mistake, I suggest that it could have been caught if the answer had
been checked in such-and-so a way).
