Developmental Math Flipped Classes

What is a flipped class?

A flipped (or inverted) class flips the traditional lecture class. Lectures are watched at home and class time is turned into workshop time where students assimilate the new information. The format allows more time for teachers to interact with students instead of lecturing.

How does this work for my developmental math class at Weber State?

The flipped classes meet four days a week in a regular classroom with an instructor. Prior to each class meeting, you will watch a video lecture or read through the textbook and create a set of notes to bring to class. In the classroom, your instructor will review some key ideas. Then you will work in groups to complete your math exercises for the day. All students follow the course schedule at the same pace.

Does this class use the MyMathLab software?

Yes. Videos, the textbook, homework, quizzes and tests are accessed online using the MyMathLab software.

Is studying in the Hub required for flipped classes?

No. Meeting four days a week in class fulfills the university's required instructional time, therefore independent instructional time in the Hub is not required. Tests are taken in the Hub testing center. Students in flipped classes are always welcome to get tutoring help in the Hub as needed.

How successful are students in the flipped classes?

In our pilot program the pass rate in the flipped class was significantly higher than the TERM pass rates, as well as the national average of pass rates for developmental mathematics. Some students said the flipped class is a fun way to learn math.

What else should I know about flipped classes at Weber State?

The flipped class is very structured. Students who cannot keep up with the schedule or otherwise meet the requirements of the course are transferred into a TERM course.
