Want to learn how to use a MERLOT website effectively in the classroom? This site is designed to help integrate web-based assignments and activities into math courses. Each section describes a teaching method, why/when it is useful, how it can be implemented, and a set of math assignments and activities that can be used in your class.
- Interactive Lectures draw students into the class and gain feedback on student understanding by interspersing short individual, pair, or small-group activities with the lecture.
- Just-in-Time Teaching: Students read assigned material outside of class, respond to short questions online, then participate in discussion and collaborative exercises the following class period.
- Mathematical and Statistical Models involve solving relevant equation(s) of a system or characterizing a system based upon its statisical parameters.
