The average attention span of an adult human is 12-20 minutes. Our lectures are 50-80 minutes. Attention Span Math reminds us to take a break now and then, and to bring the class back to life by bringing some life to the class. Many students learn things better if they can see and touch them, so this column is dedicated to them. Here are 13 physical, kinetic, visual (and fun) things to do to make your EM class notorious (and to wake up even the students in the back row).
