Day 35: the end of remediation

skips a month or so…

Inspired by Michael Pershan and Frank Noschese, I’ve decide to try an experiment with ending trying to help a struggling student by pushing them on questions about present and future material, rather than going back and having them re-hash their mistakes from the past. If this is going to work anywhere, it’s got to work in the super-spiraly world of physics, right?

Also, with this student, I’m taking an extra proactive step of simply simply emailing one question a day in the hopes that they will simply respond to the email and see how a little bit of practice can yield tremendous results.

You can succeed with small steps SAS
