Developmental Mathematics: Challenges, Promising Practices, and Recent Initiatives
Bonham, Barbara S.; Boylan, Hunter R.
Journal of Developmental Education, v36 n2 p14-16, 18, 20-21 Win 2012
Developmental education has increasingly become part of the national debate in higher education. This is particularly true for developmental mathematics courses which, in general, have the highest rates of failure and non-completion of any developmental subject area. This manuscript describes the current state of the art in developmental mathematics, discusses major initiatives designed to reform and improve success rates, and identifies research-based teaching practices associated with improved student performance in developmental mathematics courses.
