“Clicker Technology” Almost all the lectures incorporate a few multiple-choice questions that test the concepts we are learning. You will individually enter answers via a clicker, and a bar graph will be instantly generated for you to see how you all answered. Then, you will be asked to discuss with your neighbor, and convince them of your answer*! After a few minutes, you will all re-enter answers individually and we will all see what happens to the bar graph! Participation in this is very important, and useful for you (and fun!). Attendance will also be monitored via the clickers – you will enter the last 4 digits of your SSN at some point in the lecture. Importantly, it is your participation that will give you course credit (10%) for this, NOT the correctness of your actual answers – individual answers are never correlated with individuals. * Original idea of Eric Mazur, Harvard University, “Peer Instruction”
