A Component of Title V: Opening the Gateways: The High Tech-High Touch Initiative: Improving Student Success in Math, Writing, and Reading

To improve pass rates in college algebra, increase student retention and graduation, and improve STEM pipeline. Transformed all College Algebra sections in 2012/13. Faculty teach using the Mastery program, which involves computer-assisted instruction (high tech) combined with active learning using trained undergraduate Learning Assistants (LAs) (high touch). After class, students go to the computer lab to practice the concepts discussed in class. LAs trained in effective, evidence-based teaching techniques by the LA program assist students with difficulties they encounter.
