What is the smart lab?
- S.M.A.R.T. Lab
- students mastering algebra through revolutionary techniques
2 hours a week
located in Mazama
Math 60 & 65
Hawkes Learning Systems
CHANGE SLIDE- LEAD INTO "WHY MAKE A LAB JUST FOR MATH HELP?!"
Why is the lab important?
Math is fun- lets give people a place to have fun doing math
It's used in many jobs.
It's used in every day life.
ALGEBRA is used all the time
Studies have shown math improves cognotive functionality / problem solving skills
BUT MATH IS HARD- top paying jobs (ironically mathematicians don't make much BECAUSE LOGIC PRACTICE, NOT MATH MAKES MONEY)
Math is frustrating as it is.
Studies show that many people have math anxiety
(learning math, swimming, anxiety = upstream swim)math
anxiety makes it harder to do math
So when a student comes in, how do they ask for help?
PROBLEMS WITH EACH OPTION
- Given Options:
- Riase hand
- write computer number on the whiteboard
- Unorthodox Options:
- Call on the nearest tutor
- Stand near the front door (for stamps)
- Stare at a tutor
- Curse of scoff loudly
CHANGE SLIDE: LEAD INTO "Hey, a quick question!"
As you can see, there is nothing quick about this question.
And I get it, I WANT TO HELP. We all do.
By not people are getting mad
LEAD INTO NEXT SLIDE- "If you thought I was joking about students staring at us tutors"
When I Have A Question in The Lab, I prefer to
153 STUDENTS (not all here, some didn't answer)
TALKED WITH PROFESSORS
The problem with the spread of choices
not everyoe was asked- WHAT PEOPLE WROTE ON THE SIDE
the problem with the popular choice- it's almost the worst
LEAD INTO SLIDE- How could I get rid of ALL CHOICES, and maybe even find a better one
RAISE HAND- How many of you have a black board?
Easy to USE- helps shy students
CAN CHANGE THE NAME to COMP NUMBER
ABILITY TO TEXT- PEER TUTORING
- LEAD INTO NEXT SLIDE- So, would people like this? INITITAL THOUGHTS
