Supplemental Instruction

For a complete listing of available courses for spring 2022, please see below.

 

SI sessions:

  • Provide opportunities for students to improve understanding of material in historically difficult classes

  • Are a great way to meet classmates through collaborative learning

  • Are guided by an SI leader that has been trained in supplemental instruction and attends class

  • Meet twice a week outside of class and are completely voluntary

All students enrolled in an SI-supported course are invited to attend SI sessions. Session dates,
times, and locations are announced in class. Please bring all relevant material to SI sessions.

Testimonials

This semester, students who attended SI sessions for Math 241, on average, scored 6 points higher on the first test than students who did not attend an SI session.

Students who attended 6 or more SI sessions in Spring 2021, on average, scored a letter grade higher than the class average with quite a few scoring 20 points higher.

"Thank you so much for all you've done. You take so much time out of your week to focus on our needs. You helped me get an A on my test, and I'm so grateful."

"My SI Leader is SO helpful and encouraging! She has such a great personality and can explain complex concepts in a way that makes them seem simple. She was always available for questions, even those that did not pertain to the course."

"I like how my SI Leader re-explained the information. She made it easier to understand."

"I liked my SI Sessions because we were able to see specific problems worked out & I was able  to ask questions when I got confused."

"It was beneficial for me to practice problems as a group."
