I taught Math 151 in the fall 2006 semester. I like to teach well but part of teaching well means teaching effectively. Overall, the students in my class did not do as well as I thought they should have on the exams I gave.
Casey Stengel was supposed to have said of the '62 Mets, "I coached good, but boy! Did they play bad." But I don't think teaching is good if students don't learn.
Conversations with 151 students strongly suggested that deficiencies in study skills were a major cause of poor student performance. I would like to improve this situation. This semester we'll try Math 152 clinics. While getting an A perhaps needs more determination and effort than most students would like to expend, I really believe that almost all students have the talent and intelligence to earn B's in Math 152.
Students may attend all or a part of a clinic. They should bring the
textbook, a graphing calculator, paper, and writing implements. They
should be prepared to work, and not to be passive observers. There
will be no lecturing, and the principal object will be for
students to work on and complete textbook problems.
