1 California University of Pennsylvania’s Approach to Improve its Developmental Math Kaddour Boukaabar, Ph.D. Professor of Mathematics California University of Pennsylvania NADE, Greenville, SC, February 26-28, NADE Dr. Boukaabar 1 California University of Pennsylvania

2 Team-Teaching  A tenured experienced professor, team-teaches with an adjunct sections of DMA 092, Introductory Algebra, in a computer classroom. The whole course is set out in the software. The tenured professor meets the three sections on Mondays or on Tuesdays and lectures over the assigned sections. He asks a couple of questions using Web-based CRS. He assigns Brain-Paper-and-Pencil (BPP) activities and let them start on the homework (time permitting) NADE Dr. Boukaabar 2 California University of Pennsylvania

3  On W-F (or R), the adjunct meets the students. She helps them with doing their online homework, practice quizzes and practice tests. She is helped by a work- study tutor. The co-instructors meet weekly to discuss the course, adjust and decide will be covered the upcoming week. Announcements are then sent to the student (coordinator course feature ) NADE Dr. Boukaabar 3 California University of Pennsylvania

4 Thoughts:  Team-teaching (making adjunct part of the department).  Work-Study in and out of class.  Online resource (video clips, multimedia)  Classroom Response System helps.  Coordinator Course feature of the software helps.  Students actually do the work, different students at different paces NADE Dr. Boukaabar 4 California University of Pennsylvania

5 Technology is not sufficient!!  Study Skills are embedded.  BPP (brain-paper-and-pencil)  Help in the Math Lab and NSC 109 open on TR  Group work California University of Pennsylvania NADE 2015 Dr. Boukaabar 5

6 Constantly Remind Students  Pep talk them on a daily basis about good study habits  Not to procrastinate  To seek help if needed California University of Pennsylvania NADE 2015 Dr. Boukaabar 6

7 From Dr. Paul Williams, Director Math Lab  “Another inclusion in this report is data from three flipped classroom sections that were taught by professors Boukaabar and Langley this semester. Ninety six students were enrolled in these sections. Eighty five percent of the outcomes assessment objectives were met by the flipped classroom sections. “
