Class time was used to answer and work out problems students had. Students scored an average of 4.11 on the AP calculus test with the video lessons, and in previous years students scored an average of 3.59 with the traditional way of teaching.

While still attending a “brick-and-mortar” school structure, face-to-face classroom methods are combined with computer-mediated activities. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning. A hybrid course is designed to integrate face-to-face and online activities so that they reinforce, complement, and elaborate one another, instead of treating the online component as an add-on or duplicate of what is taught in the classroom. Advantages of hybrid learning • More opportunities to interact with the course materials and resources, leading to greater engagement and enhanced opportunities for success • Reduce stress • Higher-quality peer interaction • Greater flexibility in the course scheduling, a boon to high percentage of working and commuting students • Increased skills in self-directed learning leading to greater learner
