"If I determine that a student is struggling with certain topics, I recommend that they work on the appropriate section in the personal study plan. In the past, doing this has helped quite a few students."

I am a Principal Lecturer in the School of Mathematics & Statistics at Arizona State University and have been teaching there since 1990. Before coming to ASU, I was a high school mathematics teacher in northeast Ohio. I have used a variety of digital products, starting with Webwork in the early 2000's.

I am currently teaching the two semester business calculus sequence which consists of single variable calculus during the first semester and multivariable calculus, finite mathematics, and probability and statistics during the second semester.

The text used is Finite Mathematics and Applied Calculus 6th edition by Waner and Costanoble with Enhanced WebAssign. My sections are taught using the hybrid or flipped classroom model. Classes meet once per week instead of twice. Students watch videos of the chosen topic then come to class and have a short lecture on the topic then work collaboratively on activities related to the topic. Students also take short quizzes on each video lecture. If I determine that a student is struggling with certain topics, I recommend that they work on the appropriate section in the personal study plan. In the past, doing this has helped quite a few students.
