INSTRUCTORS’ COMMENT TO STUDENTS:
This is a “roll up your sleeves and get to work” class. We work in groups. Lecture is held to a minimum. If you have a question, ask your partners first, and then if you are unsatisfied ask one of your resident staff or teacher. Research shows that students do better in algebra when this format is used.
