Welcome to Supplemental Instruction!

SI Sessions are out-of-class study and review sessions for difficult courses. SI supplements, but does not replace out-of-class preparation for the course. All students in designated course sections wanting to improve understanding of course content and grades are urged to participate weekly. As a group, you will review notes, clarify text materials, discuss ideas, do worksheets, prepare for tests and take practice exams.
Come prepared - bring notes, text, and questions!

As the SI motto goes: "Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand."

    Accounting is not intuitive and requires more time spent than most courses reading the textbook and practicing the problems. My advice is to start practicing problems from the book right away (try and avoid procrastination as much as possible) and to form study groups with your classmates" - Charles Brown

    "Watching others work out problems may look easy but to reassure yourself that you know how to do it, you must practice the problems yourself! Practicing problems and chemistry reactions over and over will help you remember the material as if it’s on the back of your hand."

    “Find a way to make the material meaningful to you on a personal level. This can be through creative expression in your note taking, working with peers within a study group, watching videos online, teaching others what you’re learning, or any combination of these or other techniques. If you can find a way to be passionate and enthusiastic about the material, you will thrive and be successful.” - Robbie L.

    "Make sure to do the reading! You cannot do well in this class unless you are actively reading. If it’s in the text, it’s fair game for exams. Each paragraph in the textbook should generate something in your notes. Plan ahead and break it down, do a little everyday, giving yourself a few days before the exam to familiarize yourself with your notes. As long and they are thorough and organized, there is no such thing as too many notes! Make sure to understand your notes and not just memorize because test questions will be application based." - Gabriela J.
