Abstract: Hard simple problems

On a recent linear algebra exam, a clear majority of the students claimed  that the subspace of R^4 described by the equation  x + y + z + w = 0, has dimension 4. (They did much better on the task of determining the null space of a given 3x4-matrix.)

What has gone wrong and what should we do about it?
