Get Ahead of the Curve: Algebra

baltimoresun.com A failing grade for Md. math What is taught in high schools seen as insufficient for college By Liz Bowie July 12, 2009 Maryland's public schools are teaching mathematics in such a way that many graduates cannot be placed in entry-level college math classes because they do not have a grasp of the basics, according to education experts and professors. College math professors say there is a gap between what is taught in the state's high schools and what is needed in college. Many schools have de-emphasized drilling students in basic math, such as multiplication and division, they say.

"We have hordes of students who come in and have forgotten their basic arithmetic," said Donna McKusick, dean for developmental education at the Community College of Baltimore County. College professors say students are taught too early to rely on calculators. "You say, 'What is seven times seven?' and they don't know," McKusick said. Ninety-eight percent of Baltimore students signing up for classes at Baltimore City Community College had to pay for remedial classes to learn the material that should have been covered in high school. Across Maryland, 49 percent of the state's high school graduates take remedial classes in college before they can take classes for credit.

And the problem has been getting worse. The need for remedial math classes among Maryland high school graduates who had taken a college preparatory curriculum and went on to one of the state's two- or four-year colleges rose from 23 percent in 1997 to 32 percent in 2007, according to an Abell Foundation report released this spring.

8.In 1935 a chain letter craze started in Denver and swept across the country. It worked like this. You receive a letter with a list of five names. You send a dime to the person named at the top, cross out that name, and add your own name at the bottom. Then you send out five copies of the letter to your friends with instructions to do the same. When your five friends send out five letters each, there will be 25 in all. If none of the 25 persons getting these letters breaks the chain, 125 more letters will be sent, and so on.

9.Two students are in a group. Before they start to work, they shake hands with each other. In a different group there are three students. Students A and B shake hands, students A and C shake hands, and students B and C shake hands for three total handshakes. If four students are in a group, the number of handshakes will be six: A and BA and CA and DB and C B and DC and D If five students are in the group, the number of handshakes will be 10. A and BA and CA and DA and E B and CB and D B and EC and D C and ED and E List the handshakes for groups of 6 and 7.
