MSTE Friday Lunch Series - "Taking High School Level Math in College: Issues, Trends, and Novel Approaches."
Each year, over one million college students enroll in math classes that do not count towards degree credit and serve to delay their time to graduation and use up resources. This talk provides a brief introduction to the major issues and trends related to these pre-college level math classes and then outlines a current effort to help accelerate students through these classes. This will include initial data from a study examining student experiences in this class.
The MSTE Friday Lunches take place during the Fall & Spring semesters. Join us weekly for presentations and informal dialogue on Math, Science, Technology, and/or Education.
