Stopping the Math Meltdown: MITE Launches Developmental Math Solutions Project
Nearly three-quarters of freshman entering community colleges have to take remedial math. Fewer than half of them pass. Getting into and through college is key to the future of these students, but math is often an insurmountable hurdle for many of them. Change is on the way, though. A new planning project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is designed to find ways to retool math education to overcome this obstacle to success.
The Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE), known for innovation in open educational resources distributed through the National Repository of Online Courses (NROC), is meeting with school administrators, teachers, and students across the nation to find new and practical ways to tackle this issue.
If you would be interested in participating in a May online focus group about this project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the project, click here.
