Improving the Basic Mathematics Program at Saddleback College.
Sworder, Steven C.
This study describes the basic mathematics programs used in, and develops a set of recommendations for, the curriculum at Saddleback College. A survey of the mathematics chairpersons of 105 California community colleges and of the mathematics department faculty was conducted for use in beginning a four-part Delphi exercise. Based on the results of the Delphi exercise it was recommended that the Saddleback College program consist of an optional, tutorial laboratory course and two arithmetic/introduction to algebra courses. One of the latter courses would be directed at those students needing extensive development work in this area and the other would be designed for those needing only a review or those already in possession of a high level of computational skills. Cost analysis for the recommended system was reported. Learning environment surveys, the Delphi questionnaires and results, and material for program cost analysis are provided in appendices.
