  38. Joyce – INDIAN LAKE LOCAL (verified owner)

    I think the actual content and presentation was fine. I had trouble with getting the sound to work consistently and the module 5 quiz kept telling me I had answered incorrectly on a question when I answered exactly as the handout and presenter had listed the order of Questivity Thinking questions. Did it several times and always the same.

  47. Stephanie – WESTERVILLE CITY (verified owner)

    While she says it can be adapted to secondary, at least in the math field, there are few examples.

    Excellent course
