I am constantly growing as an educator and continually revising and redeveloping these problem sets. In their most current iteration, which was driven by a personal pedagogical evolution, I’ve moved away from course specific problem sets to a series organized by specific topics. First, topic driving problem sets allow for living documents that can be modified to suite various course layouts and future curricular changes. Secondly, and more importantly, topic aligned problem sets allow students to asses their understanding on a particular area rather than a series of topic linked together. This allow students (and me) to more specifically identify areas of disconnect and enhances student learning.
