After watching the videos and learning about how Susan Mcclory transformed the mathematics department at San Jose State, I was intrigued by the fact that, just by reconstructing the way math could be taught brought their progress percentages up. It is a fact that every individual has a different learning style. The quality of Susan Mcclory's content was very well said. She proved that developing a program where students could attend lectures and take notes as well as take the time to ask for help in seperate math labs, improved the scores of students that were not fully understanding the material before. Presenting a program that gives students a positive mathematical learning experience really helps others who watch Susan Mcclory's educational videos. The easy use of the material allows people to engage in new ways to teach or create programs where not only will students improve, but teachers as well.
