As a way to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the global education system —including higher education— switched to digital education. Most of face-to-face educational strategies can be used in a virtual teaching, with slight adaptations. In the case of flipped classroom, the students are provided with learning resources before the class and online classroom time is used to deepen understanding through discussion with faculty and peers’ different problems. In this study, an optional experience of using flipped classroom, with first year students of Agricultural Engineering Grade in the subject Mathematics I, during online teaching period due to COVID-19 pandemic is described. Thirty-two of 76 students took part in this experience. More than 50% of them attended to 8 out of 10 seminars. Both the percentage of students who took the final exam and the qualifications, especially those above 6, were better for students involved in flipped classrooms. However, there was not a clear relationship between the marks obtained and the number of seminars received. Therefore, all the results show that this methodology is highly effective and has a great deal of take up among students.
