About PAL

What you can expect at a PAL session: The PAL leader will often have you work in pairs or groups of three to solve the problems they selected for the session. S/he will circulate to make sure groups are on the right track. S/he is more likely to ask your group questions, which will lead you in the right direction, than give you answers. S/he might bring in a student from another group to explain how they solved a problem because PAL operates on the principle that once you can teach the material to someone else, you really know it. 

  • Come weekly for practice with lecture concepts and problem solving

  • Research shows that students who attend and participate in PAL 10 or more times in a semester can raise their grade by up to one whole letter
