Math Acceleration


Math acceleration

  • Accelerate Developmental Math students through the developmental curriculum by reducing the number of courses in the developmental math sequence.

  • Focus on increasing transfer rates for non-STEM majors who need Statistics to transfer.


Math acceleration

% passing statistics based on beginning math level% is halved with each additional developmental course.


Math 248up accelerated mathematics for statistics

Math 248up – Accelerated Mathematics for Statistics

  • Developmental Preparatory Course for Math 13 (Statistics)

  • pre-req is successful completion of pre-algebra or placement into elementary algebra

  • covers elementary and intermediate algebra topics from Math 201 and 203 that are needed for statistics, with a data analysis contextualization

  • introduces basic statistical topics covered in college-level statistics


Math acceleration

  • intended only for those students who want to transfer and need Math 13

  • not intended for STEM, nursing, or business majors – who need intermediate algebra as a pre-requisite for other math/science courses

  • does not substitute for intermediate algebra

  • students seeking an AA degree before they transfer will need Math 13 to meet their AA requirements


Math acceleration

  • 2 sections begun at BCC Spring 2012

  • COA begins: Fall 2012

  • 5-credit hour course

  • Meets twice/week; almost 6 hrs/week


Recommendations

Recommendations

Institutional encouragement of further faculty training and course development

Institutional monitoring of experimental program success rates
