 “Opening” Developmental Math 
 The Goal: To help dramatically increase the number of students meeting the current required standards that open the door to desirable post-secondary educational programs and career opportunities. Curricular Sequence Delivered freely online, this series will allow for customized pathways through the four courses offered in most remedial math sequences: Basic Math, Beginning Algebra, Geometry, and Intermediate Algebra. The series will heed the call for “21st century” mathematics, acknowledging that traditional curriculum may not best prepare learners for modern occupations or to be well informed citizens, as suggested by national common core standards and AMATYCs proposal for a new developmental mathematics. 
 Learner Centered Experience This project is designed to deliver a flexible, learner-centered experience, taking into account learning theory, the research literature in mathematics education and new research in technology, media, and learning. The design process is informed by a rigorous study of current and proposed curriculum standards and products, including textbooks, software, web applications, and tools. “Portfolio of Learning” 
 This curriculum integrates multiple modes of learning - conceptual, procedural, problem-solving, project based, peer-based, simple games, and assessment - to open the door to mathematical reasoning and critical thinking to a broad range of learners. The learning object architecture allows institutions, instructors and students to adapt the content to different program and learner needs. Media-Rich and Diverse Learning objects include dynamic audio and video presentations, active and collaborative learning 
 activities, problem sets, self-tests with feedback, and formative and summative assessment. Students work through activities in a sequence that leverages their own successful learning strategies while building 21st century skills. Components include: Warm-ups: a series of problems to assess prior knowledge and recommend review. Presentations: the new media equivalent of a session with a teacher and a blackboard. Worked Examples: narrated step-by-step presentations of a problem solved. Problems: symbolic and word, designed in adaptive sets, giving students practice and feedback. The National Repository of Online Courses (NROC) is an Readings: excerpts that provide reinforcing or alternative explanations and examples. Open Educational Resource Review: self-test mastery before moving to the next lesson. (OER) project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Projects: promote collaboration in the project-based learning tradition to solve real-world problems. Education (MITE), an Peer Tutor Simulations: pair students with simulated peer tutors to solve problems. educational non-profit corporation committed to Simple Games: give learners a chance to practice what they have learned in a no-fault environment. improving access to high-quality education for everyone. Assessment: formative and summative assessment designed to guide a learner's progress. To review course TOCs, or provide feedback on this project, visit us at: ©2010
