Undergraduate Research Projects Woven Into Remedial Math Curriculum [G]

text item
Michal Ramos • Yakima Valley College

Opportunities for undergraduate research (UGR) predominantly arise for students with college-level standing in mathematics and science. Yet meaningful UGR projects can be facilitated within a remedial math course to expose students to the rewarding and motivating experiences of collecting data, designing experiments, interpreting outcomes, and presenting findings to a diverse audience. These projects can address issues directly related to the campus to generate more buy-in from student participants. Standard math concepts and skills taught in remedial courses are directly applied to such projects. This talk will discuss a case study involving two cohorts of students: one in accelerated Pre-Algebra/Beginning Algebra and another in accelerated Beginning/Intermediate Algebra.
