Developing Compressed Beginning and Intermediate Algebra Courses
Walker, Sylvia E.
Journal of Developmental Education, v40 n2 p30-34 Win 2017
The purpose of this project was two-fold. First, it would provide an opportunity for students to complete the developmental math course sequence more quickly, thereby enabling students to proceed to a college-level mathematics course sooner. To accomplish this, the classroom was designed with computer-assisted homework courses that blended beginning and intermediate algebra into two, 8-week piloted courses. Second, by using a combined beginning and intermediate algebra book, the students' repetition of previously learned material was reduced, thereby enabling more class time for the new material in Intermediate Algebra.
