At Bakersfield College (BC), 84% of first-time students enter underprepared, and only 34% of students who started at any level of remedial math completed a certificate, degree, or transfer-related status during a six-year period. BC redesigned traditional math pathways to offer more coherent accelerated options in remedial math. By extending the classroom to support college readiness, BC provides intrusive academic and counseling support to improve student learning in the math classroom and beyond. In this presentation from the 2017 RP Group Strengthening Student Success conference demonstrates how these acceleration and intensive support practices have increased student success at BC. Perhaps one of these approaches will be right for your college!
