big classes, extra help

Picture it: 700 students. No TA for help with instruction. And now students are pressing you for more information about one of the more complicated things you teach. Maybe you live that scenario already. Kim Woodrum in Chemistry at the University of Kentucky certainly does.

In one of TASC’s recent Panic! series presentations, Kim talks about giving more time to problem-solving of equations by using a simple video of her “talking hands.” Watch it on iTunes U. (After clicking the link [be patient, iTunes will open*], click on Get Movie to the right of Kim Woodrum: Teaching Problem Solving to download it.)

*You must have the free iTunes software loaded on the computer to view the video.
