It was a simple observation: The time when students really need educators to be physically present is when they get stuck on homework questions and need individual help. We asked ourselves, "What if we prerecorded our lectures and students viewed the videos as part of their 'homework,' and then we used the class period to help students with the concepts they didn't understand?" How Our Flipped Classrooms Operate We began using the flipped classroom model in 2006, while we were both teaching chemistry at Woodland Park High School in Colorado. In that first year, we gave the same end-of-unit tests as we had before we converted to flipped classrooms. Why Teachers Are Flipping Web Only

Finance Help Long Lots Each security is divided into Lots. These do not appear in the user interface, but they are important for calculating gains and returns. Lots, in turn, are composed of transactions. Every time you purchase shares of a stock, a new lot is opened. This is easiest to explain with examples: Suppose you buy 100 shares of XYZZ on April 1, 2008, then 100 more shares on April 1, 2009. Lot 1: Transaction: 4/1/2008 BUY XYZZ 100 Lot 2: Transaction: 4/1/2009 BUY XYZZ 100 Each BUY transaction starts its own lot. Now suppose you sold 50 shares of XYZZ on May 5, 2008. Transaction: 5/5/2008 SELL XYZZ 50 Suppose you also sold 80 shares of XYZZ on September 19, 2009. Transaction: 9/19/2009 SELL XYZZ 50 Transaction: 9/19/2009 SELL XYZZ 30 At this point, Lot 1 is considered a closed lot, that is, it has no more shares available for sale. Everything we have talked about so far applies to long lots, lots that are created by buying and holding stock. Long Lot Computations
