The Learning Environment
All our courses are taught in a typical lecture style classroom setting. Some courses utilize a hybrid style approach where students can view videos on certain topics allowing a more in depth discussion in class. Introductory classes are generally large lecture hall classes with these classes broken up into smaller groups for recitations, where teaching assistants review homework problems. Upper level courses are intended to be much smaller, but will possibly still be as large as 50 students.
