START is designed to help students learn formulas, theories and concepts using a step ​by step approach as a prelude to advance problem solving.


The approach uses key steps that require students to
  • State/define the concept, theory, or formula, to
  • Take it apart, to
  • Analyze the assumptions, to
  • Relate it to other phenomenon, and to
  • Translate it to the real world.​​
