What is flipping?

Wolverton gets paid to teach and I feel like for the first couple of weeks of class, he did not do that and he told us to just read the book.
Professor Wolverton's teaching methods, should serve as a model for all professors.
I thought Wolverton was a great professor. I appreciate his approach with the class with more application questions...
