Developmental Math Design for a Science/Math Bridge Program An Accelerated Approach to Basic Skills Remediation
Abstract: Developmental Math Design for a Science/Math Bridge Program: An Accelerated Approach to Basic Skills Remediation by Luann Borowicz and Emily Baguhn, Madison Area Technical College; a conference paper for the Education Division's 2011 ASQ Advancing the STEM Agenda in Education, the Workplace and Society at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, July 19-20, 2011.
This paper is about an innovative Bridge program at Madison Area Technical College that pairs General Chemistry with a non-credit developmental math course and an technical reading course designed to support a chemistry curriculum. The outcomes are considered very successful and encouraging: 93% of the students who completed the program earned a C or better in the Chemistry course and a 93% in the Math course.
