MAT082 students historically demonstrate a need for organizational, time management, test-taking and study skills. They also struggle with Math and test anxiety.
In order to address this need, in the Fall of 2014, I requested to teach a AAA learning community with one of my MAT082 courses. The attached results compare my student performance in concurrent MAT082 courses (one with AAA one without). As the data shows, students who are provided with AAA instruction and curriculum have thus far out performed their peers in a traditional MAT082 course. Since many MAT082 students are new to EMCC and the beginning of the semester includes integers and fractions, I chose to focus on the first half of the semester. I will however, continue to monitor the students progress.
