Preparatory Mathematics Programs in Departments of Mathematics.
Lindberg, Karl
This paper reports on a survey of remedial mathematics programs offered at the college level. The paper is divided into five sections. Section I describes the sampling procedures used in the study. In Section II, the occurrence of remedial mathematics programs in the various types of institutions and some general characteristics of these programs (such as annual enrollment in both remedial and regular programs, the amount of college credit given, textbooks used, and the use of audio-visual aids and of tutors) are discussed. Section III presents a classification of remedial mathematics programs based on two aspects of instruction: the method used to present material to the students and the means of pacing the presentation. In Section IV, evaluations of the effectiveness of individual programs are given, based on each respondent's judgment of that program's success along with the percentage of students successfully completing that program. Section V discusses both the process and the results of change in remedial mathematics programs. Finally, appendices contain lists of mathematics departments identified as having certain types of non-traditional instruction in their remedial mathematics programs. (DT)
