Presented findings on Linked Classes at "Gear Up" Spring 2008
Presented findings on Linked Classes at Title V Workshop Fall 2007
I have developed and taught linked classes that link Math 0300 with Math 1300, Math 1300 with Math 1301, and Math 0300 with Math 1310. I believe this is the way to successfully get students through their required Math sequence because students are in a Math class 4 days a week. They can keep their Math current and engage in Math activities more often. Another reason for the success is the comradery that develops in the class when these students spend so much time together. They also feel better about their Math abilities and no longer have issues with Math anxieties. They work harder to pass 2 math classes in the same semester, and take their first final exam when it is the only final exam they are taking the (7th – 8th week).
