Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking
provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course
material and improve their grades.
SI sessions are open to all students in the course and are attended on a
voluntary basis FREE of charge. For you the student, it’s a chance to get

session you will be guided through this material by your SI leader, a
competent student who has previously taken the course.

content and are anxious to help guide you through it. They’ll be in class
with you every day, hearing what you hear and reading what you read. What
they won’t do is lecture; their job is to help you think about the lectures
you hear and the books you read, and then put it all together into some kind
of perspective during SI review sessions so you can learn it more

choice is yours) and each one will be different because you will have new
