The inverted calculus class is on a sound theoretical footing and we know how to create learning objectives and pre-class activities for it. But how to get students along for the ride?

In this next installment of posts on the inverted calculus class, I write about how I used an updated version of the Guided Practice assignment to build the development of self-regulated learning skills into the basic everyday processes of the course.
Self-regulated learning is a principle that describes learning behavior initiated, managed, and assessed by the learners themselves. In this post I describe what self-regulated learning looks like and why it was the basis behind the flipped-classroom calculus course I taught in 2013.
