Rickard, Brian; Mills, Melissa – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2018
Tutoring centres are common in universities in the United States, but there are few published studies that statistically examine the effects of tutoring on student success. This study utilizes multiple regression analysis to model the effect of tutoring attendance on final course grades in Calculus I. Our model predicted that every three visits to…

Hieb, Jeffrey L.; Lyle, Keith B.; Ralston, Patricia A. S.; Chariker, Julia – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2015
At the University of Louisville, a large, urban institution in the south-east United States, undergraduate engineering students take their mathematics courses from the school of engineering. In the fall of their freshman year, engineering students take "Engineering Analysis I," a calculus-based engineering analysis course. After the…

Barnett, M.D.; Sonnert, G.; Sadler, P.M. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2014
Relativizing the popular belief that student effort is the key to success, this article finds that effort in the most advanced mathematics course in US high schools is not consistently associated with college calculus performance. We distinguish two types of student effort: productive and ineffective efforts. Whereas the former carries the…

Reisel, John R.; Jablonski, Marissa; Hosseini, Hossein; Munson, Ethan – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
A summer bridge program for incoming engineering and computer science freshmen has been used at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 2007 to 2010. The primary purpose of this program has been to improve the mathematics course placement for incoming students who initially place into a course below Calculus I on the math placement examination.…
