This note is a possible contribution to the teaching of mathematics. We present a variety of examples of wrong proofs, misinterpreted definitions and the mistaken use of theory. The examples are based on our experience of teaching mathematics to engineering students. They include elementary examples and more advanced ones, and are taken from different subjects. In analysing the mistakes, we try to use them to improve the students' understanding.
