Lectures

All lectures given during the semester in this course have been added to this page. The course employs a reverse-classroom system, meaning that the lectures have slides with narration from Dr. Antaki himself. The students listen and watch the lecture before arriving to class. Class time is spent on a short review of the material and then numerous activities. The lectures included on this website are URLs from the Youtube channel for Inventive Problem Solving. Some lectures also include additional readings that help supplement the material discussed in the recorded lectures.
