NROC Developmental Math?An Open Program
Project Goal Double the number of
financially-disadvantaged students that pass
developmental math and earn a college degree that
has market value.
  • Funding 5M from The Bill Melinda Gates
    Foundation
  • 1M from The William Flora
    Hewlett Foundation
  • Project Audience
  • Ages 18-80 (average age 28)
  • Students have failed math at least once
  • Objectives
  • Provide learning activities to support an
    efficient path to credit-bearing courses
  • Offer multiple modes of instruction
  • Support multiple curricular standards
  • Allow for flexible course configurations with a
    collection of learning objects
  • Leverage the power of digital media

Focus Group Key Findings
Administrators and Faculty
  • Professional development is essential for
    supporting teacher success
  • Few instructors and institutions are satisfied
    with existing methods or digital options
  • Existing digital products
  • too expensive,
  • inflexible curricula
  • proprietary management system
  • High value placed on flexibility, affordability,
    multiple pathways for learners

18
Focus Group Key Findings
Students
  • Keep it simple struggling students and English
    language learners value simplicity
  • Real-world examples and application are a key to
    engagement
  • Puzzles, animations, simple illustrations, and
    problem sets are important
  • Humor, esoteric example, and idioms trip-up or
    confuse struggling students especially English
    language learners
  • Students appreciate and identify with the
    presenters and real work examples
