Learning how to effectively and efficiently solve problems is the key to success in many math, science and engineering disciplines. This training session will expose TAs to proven approaches to working with students who are learning the process for solving problems in their discipline. Participants in this session will learn how to plan effective problem set tutorials, designed to best support student learning and promote long-term understanding.  We will also look at different ways to organize problem set tutorials incorporating small group work and other active learning approaches that are designed to reinforce key concepts and problem-solving processes.
