Enjoy this unique opportunity with mathematics instructor and study skills expert Dr.  Paul Nolting
Breakfast will be on Friday, March 1, 8:00 a.m. – 9:15 a.m. Mathematics’ success has come to the forefront of developmental education. 

Colleges, universities and even state legislatures are trying to determine how to improve math success and decrease the number of required developmental math courses. There is now a national realization that mathematics curriculum needs to be redesigned along with the sequence of developmental math courses required for different majors. However, these changes must be validated and supported by improved placement procedures and in areas of learning support which can include tutoring, Peer Assistance Learning, Supplemental Instruction, Academic Coaches, math study skills, and test anxiety reduction.  There is no “silver bullet” for math success. Developmental math students need various support strategies. Thus, mathematics success has now become an institutional responsibility requiring cooperation from many areas outside the math department.  Dr. Nolting, a national mathematics expert, will lead the breakfast group through these suggested curricular changes and best learning support strategies to improve math success.  The group will leave with theoretical and practical knowledge on improving math success and the need for a national math summit.
