Barriers to Success in Quantitative Gatekeeper Courses.
Gainen, Joanne
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n61 p5-14 Spr 1995
Each year, about one-third of college freshmen who select majors in science, mathematics, and engineering switch to other fields. Faculty may be able to reduce student attrition from quantitative majors by addressing four barriers to success: (1) pre-college preparation; (2) peer culture; (3) classroom climate; and (4) sink-or-swim instructional style.
