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."
