Getting Started: Introduction to the Developmental Math course for Administrators and Instructors
NROC Developmental Math was designed to be used with students striving to meet college entrance requirements. This multi-modal program allows learners to create their own pace and path through developmental mathematics. Each learner may begin a unit by taking an adaptive pre-assessment that directs them to a customized path through the content needed to close their proficiency gaps. The program offers video, audio, interactive simulations, and other instructional approaches that engage a variety of learning styles and attitudes. Topically organized, this program offers flexible modules that address concepts and skills taught in the traditional developmental math sequence of Arithmetic, Beginning Algebra, and Intermediate Algebra. In keeping with AMATYC’s proposal for a new developmental mathematics approach, this program includes topics that provide a high-level, basic introduction to Statistics, Geometry, and Trigonometry.
The course includes instructor user guides that provide topic outlines, tips and challenges of teaching the math in the unit, guidance for using the unit level activities, the unit glossary, and Common Core topic correlations.
The NROC Course Manager
The PreAssessment version of NROC Developmental Math uses the NROC Course Manager, a proprietary service for NROC members that provides a database of student scores and progress generated by the course. View this section of the NROC Help Center to learn more.
