Nurturing Persistent Problem Solving
A veteran math teacher, Meghan Hubacz puts ASSISTments to the test and reports on how second-year algebra students learn to persevere in completing homework assignments through the use of the online homework platform. After learning about the program at a WPI workshop, Ms. Hubacz began building her own assignments and delivering video feedback to students.
“Like any new venture, this was quite a slow process at the beginning of the school year, but now I can complete these tasks very efficiently,” says Ms. Hubacz. “On average, it takes me fifteen minutes per lesson to complete these tasks.”
Ms. Hubacz has been pleased with the results she has seen in her classroom because of the positive feedback she has received from parents and students.
