Supplemental Instruction in Developmental Mathematics
Phelps, Julie M.; Evans, Ruby
Community College Enterprise, v12 n1 p21-37 Spr 2006
Mirroring the changing demographics of the nation, the community college student population continues to grow in size and diversity. Almost half of all students who enter these institutions need at least one remedial course--which is often developmental mathematics. Developed in 1973, Supplemental Instruction (SI) has quickly gained recognition as an academic support program used to aid student performance, retention, and academic success. Still in its infancy, SI positively influences student achievement. Preliminary findings from descriptive research at Valencia Community College, Orlando, Florida, encourage these researchers to further examine the utility of SI in creating a climate of achievement for learners in developmental mathematics courses.
