Support materials for Instructors, Teaching Assistants, and Students on forming Study Groups for undergraduate mathematics classes: http://www.math.yorku.ca/new/undergrad/studygroups.htm

This work was triggered from the findings of Richard Light and the Harvard Assessment Forum, which found that the best predictor of whether a student starting a science program at Harvard would remain in science and graduate was ... not their grades, but whether they joined a study group in first year.
