Kevin points out that we actually have seen a bunch of things like Aplia that are making aspects of undergrad education more efficient. They’re just not making it any cheaper for students and their parents
My name is Nick "Saij" Horton and I'm a graduate student studying mathematics and mathematical biology through the use of quantum evolutionary game theory.

And don't forget to check out my podcast below, Math for Primates, that I host with Tom Henderson.
