- Biology I, II
- Physics 2A, 4A

SI was first founded at the University of Kansas City, Missouri by Doctor Deana Martin. This program strives to create an engaged learning environment where students interact with course material amongst their peers to gain applicable - there is no effort to separate students by knowledge level. Efficacy and data analysis prove that students who attend SI sessions on a regular basis typically earn higher grades than their peers who do not attend understanding. Delta College is thrilled to be facilitating an SI program in conjunction with the HSI-StEM grant. It is our hope that students in these difficult courses utilize this amazing program as a resource to achieve their academic goals.
