Learn by doing, not by listening

Many small bites

- Before class:
- Reading and check-in problems (30-60 mins)

- In class

- Collaborative problem solving in groups of 4 (30-40 mins)

- After class and before next class
- Homework (60-90 mins)

- So class week =
- 3 hours class time
- ≤ 7.5 hours out-of-class time
