2. Demonstration of Understanding
Example: Students were introduced to several problem solving strategies. To demonstrate their understanding, they were to identify one and illustrate with an example where the strategy was used to solve the problem.

3. Learning... on their ownSelected topics (e.g. Percentages) were identified with large part of the module delivered to the Subject Site where suggested timeframe were given to students to learn the topic on their own. For the more capable students, they could escalate by attempting the online quizzes in the Content Management System to check their understanding and mastery of the topic.
