A Calculus class for 1st year students may have two subclasses (with two different lecturers) :
- The main class (which covers the theories and concept),
- and the 'response' class (which provides and explain how to solve problems in exercises)
For the latter, what is the ideal way to teach?
Some logical ideas that have been think of are :
Give them problems (homework) and call some students forward to work on the board in the next meeting
Give open book quizzes (open book so that the students are also studying at the same time)
Give problems and explanation as many as possible? (sometimes does this makes students lazy or not..?)
Some facts : several students that rarely focus on the lecture (skip classes, or even working on other things inside the class) have higher grades. I presume that online resources (such as Khan Academy, Youtube, ... works better for them?
Use slides or the board?
