Accommodating Student Differences With the Personalized System of Instruction

A. Matthew Bazik

Abstract


Teachers of undergraduate mathematics are confronted with the problems of accommodating a wide variety of mathematical preparations as well as diverse learning styles which students have developed throughout their years of studying mathematics at the elementary and secondary levels. A technique which has been found useful for many such students is known as the Personalized System of Instruction (PSI). The methodology described here is a modification of the "pure" PSI model. This adaptation of PSI has evolved over a period of six years of use in lower division undergraduate courses at Elmhurst College.
