About SI for this Course

I plan on using the bonds and friendships people will make with myself and their other peers to make learning physics not only easy, but enjoyable as well. This will be done via games, working in groups, and any other awesome things I (or you guys, my students) can think up. That being said, I will request feedback from my session attendees often, in order to become the best leader I can be.
