Implementing Corequisites to Impact Student Success - Our Journey

Sponsored by the Developmental Mathematics Committee

Meet the Developmental Mathematics Committee Chair

Dr. Kathryn Van Wagoner is the Director of Developmental Mathematics at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. As a member of AMATYC she has served on the DMC for many years, contributing to producing position statements.  She has also been a state delegate and is currently the president of UMATYC. In addition to decades of teaching experience, Kathryn managed a university math tutoring center. In recent years, her passion has been developing and teaching Intermediate Algebra curriculum that helps students think and reason conceptually, contextually, and procedurally about mathematics.  Kathryn loves adventure and spends as much time as possible in the outdoors.

About the Sponsoring Committee

The purpose of the Developmental Mathematics Committee (DMC) of AMATYC is to improve the quality of developmental mathematics programs in colleges by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas.

In addition, the DMC strives to

  • Provide opportunities for professional development on proven practice for developmental mathematics faculty;
  • Share best practices for curriculum and instruction that promote successful matriculation into gateway college mathematics courses and other courses requiring quantitative tools;
  • Increase involvement with national policy-making boards on issues related to college-readiness;
  • Strengthen connections with other professional organizations regarding concerns of developmental mathematics; and
  • Communicate the issues of developmental mathematics reform and the consequences of recent state-required mandates.

Spotlight of the Month Summary

This month we’re moving away from the deeper thought of student ownership of learning towards a structural effort to support student success. Sticking with the Ownership Theme from June on
Revolution, let’s look at the third stanza:

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan

The corequisite concept is a real solution (we think, but would like to get to “we know”). And yes, we’d all love to see the plan, so we can adjust it to fit our local environment.
