Abstract

This paper describes teaching strategies based on advances and educational practices proven to enhance student learning in undergraduate education. These strategies were implemented in three statics classes with varying enrollments (50 to 175 students). Meta-analysis of student feedback by their cumulative GPA provides insight into strategies deemed helpful by students. The results from three sections of statics are compared. Over 95% of the students rate overall learning in the statics class as either "very good" or "good" as compared to other classes.
