Math Advancement Project

The Mathematics Department has also begun innovative education in its Math Advancement Project (MAP). This compressed version of the Math sequence utilizes two eight week courses in one semester. The major benefit of the program is that students are heavily invested in math for that semester, which can require up to ten units of math. In addition, students are guaranteed entry into the next level in the sequence. Piloted with two development levels, the program has been expanded to include courses from two levels below college requirements to transfer level courses and this model has been added to the FYE. The data has been dramatic, with students completing two sequential courses at double the rate in half the time. The plans moving forward including determining how to scale this model to students that are traditionally part-time and developing block schedules such that students failing a course in the first eight weeks are able to re-try that course in the second eight weeks.
