‘Flipped’ classes take learning to new places

Students in a computer lab

Since the start of the school year, many of Wayne Tsai’s math students have been watching his lectures at home or in the computer lab.
They take notes and jot down questions about his algebra and geometry lessons and then return to Tsai’s classroom the next day, ready to apply what they’ve learned to problems and projects that traditionally would have been assigned as homework.
The practice — known as “the flipped classroom” because of the reversed roles of lectures and homework — has helped students understand the lessons better and move through them more quickly, Tsai said. More class time is now spent on projects and extra help for those who need it.
