Title: New Pathways for Developmental Math: A Look into Mathematical Literacy for College Students
Presenter: Kathleen Almy, Rock Valley College
Description: Mathematical Literacy for College Students (MLCS) is a new course that is part of an AMATYC initiative called New Life for Developmental Math as well as the Carnegie Quantway project. It is an innovative way to redesign the developmental curriculum, providing pathways for the non-STEM student. The course uses integrated, contextual lessons to develop conceptual understanding and technology to improve mastery of skills. In one semester, a student placing into beginning algebra will gain the mathematical maturity to be successful in statistics, liberal arts math, or intermediate algebra. Reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem solving are key components to reaching that goal. Webinar participants will learn much more about the course as well as receive ideas for course development including a sample course outline and a sample lesson.
