====== Short Activity Sequences ====== ====== Short Activity Sequences ======
-In many cases we use several activities in a carefully structured sequence to help students see how information ties together. This is a major task for beginning upper-division learners. Short sequences are ~3 or 4 activities that are used together to explore a particular topic from several different viewpoints.+Sequences are ~3 or more activities that are used together to explore a particular topic from several different viewpoints to allow students to explore how information and ideas tie together.
