Reflection: Student Feedback Solving Problems involving Volumes of Solids - Section 2: Transfer Problems


In an attempt to give my students the extra support they seemed to be missing, I decided that I would start to produce worked examples for all of the tough homework problems and post these online. What I found is that students actually went home and studied these worked examples intensely. They came back with questions or they came back talking about how much the worked examples helped. It was a lot of work on my end, but it was work well invested as it got some of my students to engage in a way I hadn't seen them engage before.
