Remediation is typically focused on training students how to get answers.  This is an overt focus on the development of procedural proficiency without conceptual understanding.  Such an approach has students able to repeat the steps they were trained to perform under strict conditions.  However, the understanding is minimal and students will not recall what they've "learned."

In this episode we discuss why remediation fails and what to do about it.  Finally, we discuss a specific application of how to remediate effectively.
