1 AHEA Conference 2008 Developmental math success with online technology Presented by Eric Kraus & Amity Jetton S INCLAIR C OMMUNITY C OLLEGE

2 P RESENTERS Eric Kraus Associate Professor DEV and MAT courses Amity Jetton Instructor, 5 yrs Science Background Previous DEV student Developmental Studies Department, Math

3 P URPOSE To share and discuss pedagogy that enhances students’ learning experiences in developmental mathematics.

4 P URPOSE What is MyMathLab? Focalized lectures More time for group activities Can technology-integrated instruction be helpful to developmental students? Multimedia online textbook accompaniment Non-traditional approach How does MyMathLab improve student performance? Stimulate student engagement Restructure student learning responsibilities

5 DEV STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS Pre-algebra Perform basic arithmetic for whole numbers, fractions and decimals Develop computational skills, number-sense, and problem-solving Beginning algebra Simplify algebraic expressions Solve simple linear equations and applied problems Factor trinomials Typical Student Low retention rate Under-prepared Non-responsive to course predominantly in lecture format Prepares students for further study in mathematics effective study strategies variety of teaching/learning experiences

14 Self reliance  Work independently  On-demand assistance  Peer-to-peer exchange  Experience connection between tasks and achievement Lecture Discuss Apply Inquiry Read Assess Discover Tutor STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY

15 For Students Allows multiple attempts Instant student feedback Instant student grading  Student gradebook  Group Presentations Assessment & Evaluation Assessment measures learning readiness, progress, and outcomes. Evaluation includes the determination of a grade or a decision regarding pass/fail for an individual assignment or for a course. For Instructors Consistent performance standards  Ability to set prereq’s and time-schedule Monitor progress  Access individual work Automated grading

16 “It has [helped] me to understand how to work a problem out that I couldn’t get before” “It has definitely helped…I can go back and review homework and print quizzes...” “I can work at my own pace which helps…” “If I don’t understand a problem it explains step-by- step.” “…it can show you how to break things down.” “I believe its just extra work.” “…I can get lost on those explanations.” STUDENT Responses
