Developmental Math Summit

AMATYC New Life Dev Math Project, Mathematicians, and the New Curriculum in Mathematics
That session (Wednesday, 8am … March 16) used these materials.

The sample Algebraic Literacy lessons are available here:

  1. Algebraic Literacy Sample Lesson Rational Exponents 2015
  2. Algebraic Literacy Sample Lesson Trig Functions Basics 2015
  3. Algebraic Literacy Sample Lesson Rate of Change Exponential 2015

 

The SECOND National Summit on Developmental Mathematics will take place in March 2016 (Anaheim, CA) prior to the NADE conference.

The official Summit program:  Summit Program 2016 feb 11 2016

Here are the program sessions:  National Math Summit Strand Presentations Final

And , here is the current schedule of sessions:  National Mathematic Summit TentativeScheduleR_1

Attendees will have many sessions to choose from (over 20), with the event starting at 1pm on March 15 and completing late afternoon on March 16.

To register for the Summit, go to the NADE web site: http://www.nade2016.net/math-summit.html

 

 

This is a page to share resources from two events — the Developmental Mathematics Summit 2013 (October 29 & 30, at Anaheim CA) and the AMATYC Conference (2013 and 2014).

 

Presentation at AMATYC 2014:  The Missing Link — Algebraic Literacy to Replace Intermediate Algebra

The existing intermediate algebra course is out-dated, and meets very few needs among our students.  The Algebraic Literacy course (New Life Project) is a modern replacement that will meet the needs of all students making the transition to college mathematics past the level of beginning algebra or mathematical literacy.

Presentation at AMATYC 2014:  Accelerate and Improve — the New Life Model

Developmental mathematics in the traditional curriculum was not designed to meet any needs; it was ‘found in a box’ years ago.  The New Life Project (AMATYC Developmental Mathematics Committee) with the help of the Carnegie Foundation and the Dana Center created outcomes for two new courses — Mathematical Literacy, and Algebraic Literacy.  The Math Lit course is shared among the three organizations with some differences.  These new courses focus on a ‘one and done’ when possible approach to developmental mathematics, resulting in acceleration while delivering improved content.

Presentation at the 2013 Summit:  Bringing New Life to Your Developmental Mathematics

Math Paths … acceleration … curriculum reform: These are key parts of improving the developmental mathematics programs at our colleges.  This presentation reviews the paths involved and gives a curricular model that can help us create new options for our students:  Good mathematics for every student.

Presentation at the Summit:  The Missing Link

The phrase ‘missing link’ refers to a connection between developmental mathematics and college mathematics.  We’ve often assumed that Intermediate Algebra plays this role.  However, we have much evidence that this course is not sufficient preparation.  The Algebraic Literacy course from the New Life Project is the missing link.  Building on resources documenting the quantitative needs of students preparing for calculus (via pre-calculus), college algebra, emerging technologies, and biology, the Algebraic Literacy course provides a modern mix of mathematics — still with a focus on algebra, but with an emphasis on reasoning and application, while including some statistics, geometry and a little right triangle trigonometry.
