Arizona State University is currently phasing out the traditional classroom setting, at least for its math and science courses.  This new way of teaching is about providing a more interactive learning experience for students, and the new system has been so successful that it has been adopted by about 30 other universities across the country. Instead of going to class to listen to lectures, students in Professor Susan Holechak’s class do that online. Then, they go to class to work on problem-solving in small groups. “I feel the students are more engaged, because in a setting like this, they work in groups and able to go table by table, group by group. I can interact with them,” said Holechak, an instructor at ASU’s School of Life Sciences.
