在你的辅导课程中期待什么

In order to lead productive sessions within the thirty-minute time limit, we tend to follow a general order of operation:

1. The student and assistant introduce themselves.

  • 如果学生是不请自来的, the student and assistant 填写预约表格 using the Learning Center’s online scheduling system (WCOnline) to document the session.
  • 如果学生有预约, the student and assistant will review the appointment form together to determine the focus of the session.

2. The assistant works with the student on the academic issue:

  • 如果是写作作业, the tutor will review the paper with the assistant, 了解他们的流程, 问问题, 提供资源.  Tutors will introduce strategies for writing and ask students to try them during the session.
  • 如果是数学或会计作业, the tutor may ask the student to walk them through their process, 回答问题, 解决练习题, 提供资源.

  • 如果是学术问题, the tutor may 问问题 about the academic issue (such as study skills, 时间管理, 做笔记, 等.) 提供资源 to help improve those areas.

3. 会议结束时,助理说:

  • provides specific tasks or takeaways for the student to continue working beyond the session
  • provides a brief summary of what was covered and enters it into the client report form.
  • asks the student if he/she would like the report form sent to the faculty member
  • asks the student if he/she would like to schedule a follow-up session

4. A survey is automatically emailed to students when their session ends to provide us with feedback on our services.

澳门MG现金数学训练营

什么是数学训练营?

数学训练营是一个复习工具. It is presented as a Blackboard course, but it is free, not graded, and not worth credit. There is no instructor for the course; instead, it is self-paced. Students can complete as much or as little of the coursework as they want, and they can take as much time as they want to do so. In other words, the Math Bootcamp is entirely self-driven on the student’s part.

数学训练营的目的

The Math Bootcamp was designed to help students review for the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra placement test. Students who want to place out of remedial math but need to review some basic concepts first can complete the Math Bootcamp before taking the placement test.

学生们对数学训练营有什么期待?

数学训练营分为五个单元, based on the topics covered on the Accuplacer Elementary Algebra placement test. 这些单位(和子单位)是:

  • 有理数运算
    1. 整数操作
    2. 分数,小数,百分数
  • 中求解方程
  • 一个变量
  • 指数运算
  • 多项式表达式
  • 线性方程

Each unit (or subunit) begins with a 10-question, multiple choice Pre-Test. Students who earn a 9/10 or a 10/10 move on to the next unit (or subunit). Students who earn an 8/10 or below receive instructions to watch several interactive videos about the topic (described in the next paragraph), following which they complete another 10-question, 多项选择后测. Students may retake the Post-Test as many times as they want.

Videos in the Math Bootcamp are designed through a software called PlayPosit. The software presents a couple minutes of video followed by a question about the content for students to respond to. In this way, the videos immediately engage students in the material.

In addition to the five units, the Math Bootcamp also includes several videos called Calculator Tips. These videos help students use various types of calculators, including scientific and graphing (in both Casio and TI brands) as well as the calculators common to cell phones. 它们涉及以下共同问题:

  • 减法和负号
  • 括号
  • 分数
  • 指数

Students can refer to the Calculator Tips at any point in the Math Bootcamp course.

What value are students getting from the Math Bootcamp?

The Math Bootcamp has proven valuable in helping students to improve their Placement Scores; one student brought her Placement Test score from a 51 to a 90 after completing the Math Bootcamp.

另外, the Calculator Tips benefit students even beyond their preparation for the Placement Test. Many students who enroll in the remedial math course return to the Math Bootcamp to watch the Calculator Tips videos.
