Supplemental Instruction for Math Courses

What is SI?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a program organized by the LeaRN program. SI is a series of out-of-class sessions led by a student who has successfully completed the course. The SI sessions integrate the review of lecture notes, textbook readings, practicing problems, along with appropriate modeling of learning strategies. "How to learn" is embedded into SI sessions along with "what to learn." Through practice and mastery of effective learning strategies, students can adopt and transfer these strategies to other subjects and content areas. Collaborative learning strategies are used in SI sessions as a means of creating a more active learning environment for student participants.

Does my class have SI?

Several math classes at the 1000 and 2000 level have SI.  Common courses include:

  • Math 1400 College Algebra

  • Math 1405 Trigonometry

  • Math 2200 Calculus I

  • Math 2205 Calculus II

  • Math 2210 Calculus III

  • Math 2250 Business Calculus

Visit the LeaRN SI page to see if your class has an SI offered this semester.

How do I join SI?

Each SI has a dedicated WyoGroup through WyoCourses. This is where leaders post announcements, resources, worksheets, solutions sets, and other helpful materials and information. To find out when and where the sessions are for your course be sure to join the WyoGroup through the LeaRN SI page
