McGraw Workshop October 21, 2020: "I completed my P-set, but I don’t understand the material”: Strategies for learning FROM P-sets
From Nic Voge
In high school most students focused on completing their math and other problem-solving assignments, and didn’t emphasize learning FROM these problems. Learning how to solve problems happened in class, from exercises, study guides, and exam reviews—and much more practice. At Princeton many of these opportunities to learn are not available, so students must make the most of their p-sets to build mastery and fluency in using techniques for specific problem types.
