Math Re-Design

The university in Maryville is making it easier for students to get through some math classes.

The Board of Regents has approved the proposal from the math faculty, that will be piloted this Fall. Right now if a student tests below a certain level on the math portion of the ACT, they have to take at least one math class to get their skills back up. THe new system allows students to do a pre-test before enrolling then math content is broken up into 10 modules that allows the student to only take the portions they need. Northwest Missouri State provost Dr. Doug Dunham says there are several benefits. If successful the math course re-design, might also be used as a model for other classes on the Maryville campus.
