what is modmath
What is ModMath?
  • Nine separate modules created from the 3 traditional developmental math courses
  • Each module is a 1-hour, 5-week course.
  • Repetitive topics removed from curriculum
  • Learning outcomes are aligned from College Algebra to Pre-algebra.
  • Students use MyMathLab (instructional software package from Pearson).
  • Students are assessed with MyMathTest and advised for placement.

  • TCC has 5 campuses and enrolled over 50,000 students in fall 2011.
  • TCC is the sixth-largest college or university in Texas.
  • In 2006, TCC began reviewing the success rates of students in developmental math courses: Less than 50% pass these courses.
modmath s history
ModMath’s History
  • TCC hosted summit in 2007 with area four-year and two-year institutions.
  • Faculty and administrators defined standard learning outcomes for College Algebra.
  • Faculty “backward mapped” and vertically aligned the learning outcomes needed to reach College Algebra.
  • Faculty created modules using MyMathLab, placement exam using MyMathTest, and example test questions for each instructor to use as reference.

    • 1,227 students enrolled in Spring 2010
    • Over 2,000 enrolled in Spring 2012
comparing success rates of modmath and traditional math students
Comparing Success Rates of ModMath and Traditional Math Students
  • During the first 4 semesters:
    • In Pre-Algebra, ModMath students’ success rate (rate of receiving at least a “C” grade) was at least 20% higher.
    • In Beginning Algebra, ModMath students’ success rate was at least 12% higher.
    • In Intermediate Algebra, ModMath students’ success rate was at least 13% higher.
