1 CMP – Math Forum November 5, 2009

2 “Accuplacer” software Math and English components Required for all first year students at all campuses To identify strong and weak students

3 Because we can identify students who need help early, we can provide them with tutors Can also identify students who can be math tutors Strongly encourage peer tutoring in class

4 Drop in center for students At most campuses Staffed with Northern College faculty Open during daytime hours

5 Geared more for first year students Some faculty create ‘Directed Learning’ hours so the students have a tutorial booked into their timetable Students have access to their math teacher

6 Recommended that a math class should not exceed 35 students in an introductory math course Promotes ‘one-on-one’ time between student and instructor Encourages students to work more closely together

7 Coordinators discuss with instructors within the programs Have formal meetings, or converse by Approach students that are at risk due to attendance and/or marks

8 Most courses have class notes on the college network system Students can access the ‘Student Success Resources’ available on the college network Some instructors use an on-line evaluation tool Others show math-related videos in class

9 Northern College offers more hours in math than many other Ontario colleges. In most Technology programs: Math 1 and Math 2 have 4 hrs/wk Math 3 has 3hrs/wk Some programs also have: Calc 1, Calc 2, Statistics and Differential Equations. In Business programs: Math 1 and Math 2 have 3 hrs/wk each Some programs also have: Stats 1 and Stats 2

10 A two-semester program that links into a Northern College Trades or Technology program Has two semesters of Math (3 hrs/wk for 15 weeks in S1, and 6 hrs/wk for 8 weeks in S2) Designed to prepare students for first semester Math in a Technology or Trades program
