Developmental Math Workshops

Developmental Mathematics is the single-largest instructional program (in mathematics) at community colleges in the U.S. and a topic of discussion in many state legislatures. Improving instruction for these courses would impact a large number of college students across the country. Since adjunct faculty are heavily involved with this instruction, an AMATYC Traveling Workshop in Developmental Math can provide support for faculty who have many demands placed on them, but limited resources.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Aligning developmental mathematics (horizontal and vertical alignment of curriculum, meeting needs of different student programs, seamless transition, implementation process)
  • Implementing technology in developmental mathematics (effective use of technology, calculators, and online courses)
  • Retaining and motivating students (student engagement, collaborative and group methods, learning communities, impacting student attitudes)
  • Assessing students' learning, and/or assessing developmental mathematics programs (types of assessments, purposes, methods)
  • Improving and enhancing instruction in developmental mathematics (which methods to use, lab-style courses, individual instruction, outcomes and assessment, motivating mathematics and relevant applications, learning styles, study skills)
  • Applying Beyond Crossroads to the developmental mathematics curriculum
  • Implementing New Life courses such as Mathematical Literacy for College Students and/or Transitions [link]

Each workshop is tailored to the site. You choose the facilitator and the topics that will be most beneficial to your faculty and the event. To inquire about a Traveling Workshop, submit the Requesting a Workshop form.
