The Mathematical Preparation of Entering College Freshmen.
Lappan, Glenda; Phillips, Elizabeth
NASSP Bulletin, v68 n468 p79-84 Jan 1984
Seeking an explanation for the increased number of students requiring college remedial math courses, the authors surveyed the mathematics backgrounds and college math placements of entering students at a large university. Researchers concluded that students need better awareness of math requirements and that math must be taught as a lifelong skill. (MD)
