Preparing High School Students for the Challenges of Postsecondary Math


April 2014


In the January 2014 issue of Principal’s Research Review, two Education Northwest authors discuss the research on how to better prepare students for college mathematics. Large numbers of students, particularly those headed for community college, are underprepared for college math and consequently are assigned to developmental or remedial math courses that do not yield credit. Authors Michelle Hodara and Rhonda Barton look at three ways to improve students’ transition to college math and why that’s important.
