I have been exploring the use of interactive techniques in CS 2312, a sophomore-level second course in Discrete Structures, which focuses on the proofs of simple results in graph theory and elementary number theory. I have found that the use of interactive techniques has completely transformed my experience and that of the students. I am able to set far more difficult exams than I would have dared in the standard lecture mode.
I am an undergraduate adviser and it is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work.
