A Developmental Mathematics Program at the University of Minnesota.
Robertson, Douglas F.
Following introductory background comments, an overview of the General College mathematics program at the University of Minnesota is given. Placement testing, course offerings, and the mathematics tutorial program are each briefly discussed. Then the program is described: students are given a choice of lecture classes, programmed instruction in a classroom setting, or programmed instruction on an independent study basis. Changes planned for 1983-84 are discussed in detail. In addition, special mathematics programs offered by the General College are noted: math anxiety program, continuing education and extension, summer institute, and other programs. An appendix includes the placement test, additional course information, and some statistics. (MNS)
