Title:
Math Literacy Without A Math Prerequisite

Abstract:
Lansing Community College has dropped all courses below the beginning algebra
level. To serve students, we are developing a variation of our Math Literacy
course ... without a math prerequisite. This session will give a little background,
provide tons of operational details, and even the experience of a sample lesson
from this new course.

Mathematics Pathways

Abstract:
This session will address:
 Pathways designed to accelerate students' progress from developmental mathematics to a collegelevel course as replacements for the traditional Prealgebra/Beginning Algebra/Intermediate Algebra route.
 Courses that reflect the mathematics pathways described in the Michigan Transfer Agreement.
 Pathways leading to alternatives to College Algebra that are aligned to targeted programs of study.
