Benson said he is unable to incorporate the same degree of flexibility into the math class that he teaches because the program is "restrictive," i.e., students must master a certain body of knowledge to advance to the next class.
Benson's experience that the majority of students in his class hailed from the ranks of the general track of students and tended not to be motivated by lectures on theory or lock-step progression through the subject.
Benson enjoyed the "mix" of students and was pleased when several of his "low-motivation" students became strongly engaged during the second semester, developed a "love" for technology and electronics, and decided to return for a second year.
