Abstract

The need to change present teaching strategies is emphasized in this study. Most of the changes should be done with caution, however caution should not be mistaken for delays and dismissal. The first year courses are the corner stone of any academic program, hence they should continue to receive adequate attention. Finally, the need for additional research aimed to improve and better understand the needs of the freshman year science and engineering classroom is realized.
