In a traditional classroom, the teacher teaches during the hour and gives homework for students to practice the skills. In a flipped classroom, how will students practice their skills. The precalculus teachers came up with an idea of "Mastery Problems" instead of homework. These problems will be given to students in class. The problems will be divided into 3 levels of difficulty. Level 1 will have low level questions to get students ready to answer the questions that involve a little more thought. Level 2 and 3 homework will involve higher level thinking. Students will be told that the chapter tests will mostly have questions in level 2 with a small percentage of questions coming from level 1 and 3. Students will choose which problems to do, but all students must be working during classtime.
This is our idea. Let me know how you assign practice in a flipped classroom. Also, let me know if you have any other ideas.
