Developmental Math

I spent some time with the Cengage editorial team yesterday, and want to capture some key points.

Developmental Math Courses
Mostly 2 year schools
Many small sections
Students test into the course
Usually non-credit

A few lead instructors - full time
Many adjuncts - freeway flyers

Generally struggling in school
Many non-traditional students
Resent having to take the class
Lack basic math skills
Fear Math

Key Problems
Instructors: Time
Students: Fear, motivation, math skills
