The book is used for doing assignments and occasionally looking at a sample problem. Assignments are an important part of the learning process.

Video- Plus courses provide a unique educational option that blends video-based and LIVE session learning. Students watch videos and complete lesson requirements on a weekly basis on their own schedule.

Probably the most important interactive component is where the teacher pauses the video and asks the students to work out a problem, make an observation, or gather some materials before continuing. This helps to keep the student engaged instead of being a passive learner. Why is it important that the work is shown on all assignment and test answer keys? For students, showing work is important for being able to figure out how a problem ended up being wrong.

Since the assignment and test problems are worked out on the answer keys, this makes the diagnosing process simple. It also gives students an example of how the showing of work can be organized. While missing a session is not encouraged, the primary "vehicle of instruction" is the videos and therefore, an absent student would only miss supplemental learning.

However, all sessions are recorded which allow students to make up a missed session. Students may watch the recorded session to be current with the group.
