MATH 96 - Strategies for Math Success

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 96. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

  1. Students will be able to construct a mathematics mind map.
  2. Students will be able to create a meta-cognitive tool to facilitate distributed practices of mathematical procedures.
  3. Students will be able to create a personalized study plan emphasizing their natural intelligence strengths.

Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)

  1. Apply the structural tools, Structure Notes, Cards, Structure Maps and Tell-Yourself-A-Story to magnify efforts for maximum results with respect to preparing to acquire, acquiring, understanding and remembering new information. 
  2. Analyze professor output for optimized noting by thinking structurally. 
  3. Apply thinking modality shifts as a function of current task and purpose. 
  4. Evaluate personal progress through the use of the "Plan Analysis" tool and synthesize results to create an improved version of "The Weekly Routine" as a component of a dynamic system of continuous improvement. 
  5. Apply mental strategies to obtain a desired state of consciousness to accelerate learning and eliminate test anxiety.
