Heather and I will be at the AMATYC conference in Jacksonville, Florida talking about our course on Thursday, November 8, at 1:40 pm. The presentation we'll give will be slightly different than the one I've been giving lately, so consider attending if you'd like more information and/or want to hear more about the classroom experience. Several samples of activities will be shown.
Thursday 1:40 - 2:30
MLCS: Redesigning a New Pathway for Non-STEM Majors
Kathleen Almy, Heather Foes
On Friday, November 9, I'm part of the Developmental Math Committee's (DMC) themed session on redesigns. In 10 minutes, I will very briefly overview our version of MLCS including challenges, progress made, and plans going forward. If you or a colleague want a quick snapshot of this redesign and others, consider this themed session.
Friday 9:00 am - 10:55 am
Evidence-based Developmental Math Redesigns (DMC Themed Session)
Embedding Student Success Strategies into Math
Courses Amy Getz
MLCS: One Year Later
A First Look at Developmental Math Students After Course Redesign
Developmental Math I and II Redesign at Valencia College
A Developmental Math Boot Camp
Washington State’s Developmental Math
Michael Nevins, Carren Walker
On Friday afternoon, I'll assist with Jack Rotman's workshop on the two New Life courses, MLCS and Transitions.
Friday 1:45 pm - 3:45 pm
New Life Courses: Mathematical Literacy and Transitions
Additionally, there are more talks on MLCS, Dana Center's New Mathways Project, Carnegie's Quantway initiative, and other schools trying pathways of their own design. Definitely the concept of pathways through developmental math beyond beginning and intermediate algebra is taking hold. The DMC will have a committee meeting on Friday afternoon that anyone can attend. At it, we'll be voting on an intermediate algebra position statement. The statement addresses the concept of allowing for innovation and moving away from a universal college-level math prerequisite, intermediate algebra, for all. Instead, the statement promotes appropriate preparation for all students based on the courses they will be taking.
Lastly, we'll be at the Pearson booth if you have questions. Also at the booth will be copies of the sampler of our book, Math Lit, in both student and instructor versions. If you want to talk more, please stop by. Or, if you'd like to set up a time to meet, please email me.
See you in Jacksonville!
