In this episode, Alan speaks with Stacey Roshan, an AP Calculus and Algebra II teacher at Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland. Alan talks with Stacey about the transformation of her classroom to one that utilizes the flipped classroom model, after attending BLC in 2010. Using this model, Stacey has seen vast improvement in her students understanding of advanced math concepts. Her insights on how she got started, how she got her message out to parents and how she manages her class will be very valuable to those looking to make this shift.
