Placement

Preparation for College MathMCC RAMP-Up Math Program

Complete at Least

4

Modules

to Pass

- Student must complete at least 4 modules in order to pass the class
- Mastery is required to pass each module (75%)

- Students can accelerate their progress by completing more than 4 modules

Requires at Least

75%

for Mastery

75% or better and the student passes the module.

<75% and the student does a required assignment based on their errors before retesting.

75% or better and the student passes the module.

Use of Khan Academy in Pilot Sections

- Identified two topics that are typically challenging for students in each Module.
- Selected a Khan Academy video for each topic.
- Each video replaces a page in the Module Workbook. Watching the video is not additional work for the student.
- Students are asked to write out the problem(s) that are worked out in each video.
- Students answer a short survey after each video.
- Students hand in completed work for each video.
- At semester end, Instructors tally number of videos watched and time spent watching videos for each participating student.

Khan Academy Pilot Sections Summer semester:

- Fall and Spring Semesters:
- 2 Day sections on the Lowell Campus
- 1 Day section on the Bedford Campus
- 1 Evening section on the Bedford Campus
- 1 Saturday section on the Bedford Campus

- 1 Day section on the Bedford Campus
- 1 Evening section on the Bedford Campus

MCC RAMP-Up Math Classroom

- 6 hexagonal pods with 6 computers per pod
- Faculty instructor and tutor embedded in each section
- 3 hours of class & 1 hour of lab per week
- Attendance is mandatory

- 30 students per section
- Also room for other students who want to make up missed classes or put in additional time

Benefits for Students

- Opportunity to complete the developmental sequence more quickly.
- More opportunity for one-on-one help.
- More active learning by students. Students do lots of problems in the course.
- Flexibility. Students can recover from set-backs more easily.
- Students start where they left off the previous semester.

Completion-Fall 2013

- Succeeded means the student finished the modules equivalent to the course they would have been placed into in the previous developmental sequence.
- Exceeded means the student finished modules beyond those equivalent to the course they would have been placed into in the previous developmental sequence.

Succeeders & Exceeders Fall 2012

Student QuotesFrom Spring 2012 Survey

- I really like the self-paced idea of this class! Traditional math classes can be so boring but This was great being able to work on my own.
- Very well organized course. I learned a lot from it, and I feel like the material was a lot easier to learn in this course rather than in a classroom setting. I was in this class for two semesters, and both professors were very helpful and pleasant to work with.
- I would rather a teacher actually teach this class than sit in front of a computer. I think not just myself but others would learn more and faster if it were taught in a classroom environment and there was classroom participation.
