Editor's Note from Walter

intelligence and motivation are normally distribution
and some or on the high side of both.

Other have a higher end.

Few are always in the lower end.

Years ago I Flipped my Accounting, Economics and Statistics Classes.
 Result: Top 25% learns lots more, remainder learned the same.
Computer Lab was available during class.
All did less work, especially the better students, who worked at home.
