Staff Photo: Brendan Sullivan The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology in Lawrenceville is using a what one teacher called a "creative conceptual way of teaching and learning" titled "Flipped Classroom". Students David Aguirre, 16, Sergey Hamdan, 14, and Jason Hwang, 16, do their homework in the classroom and do their classwork at home. Students from the physics and engineering class watch videos at home created by their teacher John Willis, providing them with the knowledge needed to prepare for classwork the following day.
