The Effects of the Use of Problem Solving and Cooperative Learning on the Mathematics AChievement of Underprepared College Freshmen
The study involved first semester freshmen (graduated from high school the summer immediately preceding their enrollment in MA 101 (Algebra)) enrolled in MA 101 and registered for MA 111 (Precalculus) the semester after completing MA 101. The researcher gathered the necessary background data (high school grade point average (HSGPA), gender, SAT-M, SAT-V, MA 101 grade, and MA 111 grade) on all students involved in the study. It should be noted that MA 101 does not satisfy a student's mathematics requirement at the university, however MA 111 does. It is customary for a student to take MA 101 and MA 111 in successive semesters.
