Learning Assistance Review, v21 n2 p69-84 Fall 2016
This paper describes the development, results, and future directions of the mathematics component of the EMERGE Summer Program at Northeastern Illinois University. Initiated summer 2014, EMERGE offered English and mathematics sessions for incoming freshmen. The mathematics session aimed to strengthen participants' mathematical foundations, mathematical confidence, and ability to successfully place into higher-level mathematics coursework in the subsequent fall semester. Mathematics participants attended mini-lectures, participated in group activities, and completed online MyMathLab modules. Mathematics component results indicate that 73% and 71% of summer 2014 and 2015 participants, respectively, placed up at least one course level in mathematics in the fall semester.
