American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges Developmental Mathematics Curriculum Committee: Annual Report.
Dyer, Patricia A., Ed.
This annual report by the Developmental Mathematics Curriculum Committee (DMCC) of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) includes seven subcommittee reports. After introductory material, the annual report outlines the DMCC's goals, enumerates its objectives for 1981 through 1986, and establishes revised goals for the collection and exchange of program evaluation information and materials. The first report, by the DMCC Evaluation Subcommittee, begins with an evaluation model, details a five-year plan, and summarizes the results of a survey of course completion at 20 schools in 17 states. The report by the Handheld Calculator Subcommittee capsulizes the findings of studies of calculator use and impact in two-year colleges. The Minimal Competency Subcommittee report establishes six objectives to be attained in identifying a minimum level of mathematics literacy for all college-level students. The Newsletter Subcommittee report briefly lists methods of facilitating information exchange between the DMCC and the AMATYC. The report by the Student Learning Problems Subcommittee details a five-year plan and presents results of an AMATYC membership survey conducted to identify perceived learning problems. The report of the Subcommittee on Teacher Qualifications provides recommendations for an AMATYC position statement on two-year college instructor qualifications. The Testing Subcommittee report lists goals to be accomplished in the identification of suitable tests. The concluding section highlights areas for further research. (KL)
