Math 113 Precalculus Algebra: Improving students' preparation for Calculus Structuring large lecture courses for student success and designing curricula to meet students' needs Math 113 Precalculus Algebra: Improving students' preparation for CalculusTue, 16 Jun 2015 09:25:37 -0700Increasing MATH 122 Success through Online Homework and Coordinated Remediation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1036510
This course traditionally has a very low success rate and acts as a bottleneck for the academic programs of students in STEM fields. It is taught each semester in 10 or so small sections, and we do not have a departmental mandate to impose pedagogical changes within the classroom. We do have historical data that identify students as "at risk" based on past courses and exam scores. We aim to increase student success through a coordinated combination of online homework sets, weekly remediation (in the form of supplemental instruction sessions) for the at-risk students, and milestone examinations.Sun, 14 Jun 2015 16:23:59 -0700Scaling Forward: Precalculus Algebra in an "Active Learning" Classroom
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1036507
We utilize a hybrid model to teach what is usually a large lecture Precalculus Algebra class in a smaller "Active Learning" class setting. Our goals are to improve student persistence within the course, as well as student preparation for subsequent courses, such as the Calculus sequence. These goals are particulary crucial in spring semesters, as historically, a significant fraction of students that take the course in the spring failed to complete or pass the course in the previous fall. This course is also prerequisite for other courses in other disciplines, including chemistry and kinesiology. Increasing the quality of student engagement through the incorporation of technology for initial and ongoing assessment, as well as instant in-lecture feedback and emphasis on group work has led to positive impact on passing rates. Finally, we were able to incorporate robust supplemental instruction and academic advising in response to student performance on initial assessment, and are tracking student retention of core competencies in subsequent courses. This implementation has shown potential as an effective remedy for students at high risk of failing the course.Sun, 14 Jun 2015 15:59:05 -0700Strengthening Student Achievement in Mathematics Using Supplemental Instruction
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=860586
This project sought to strengthen the achievement of students enrolled in high-impact mathematics courses. While SI targeting key courses rather than particular groups of students, a secondary benefit of SI was to help reduce the achievement gap between groups of students who have traditionally been underrepresented in the STEM fields. In SI, students worked in structured collaborative groups on challenging problems based on timely material presented in their lecture classes. Each of the SI sessions was led by an undergraduate student who has strong content and communication skills. SI leaders attended the class sessions to ensure that their SI sessions are current and to act as a role model for students in the course. SI leaders then met with students at least three hours per week to creatively work on problems and study skills based on that week’s lessons in a highly interactive setting.
