Mathematics through Tutoring
Course Description:The goals of this course are: refinement or acquisition of mathematics skills and connections between mathematics topics needed for successfully tutoring in an academic setting; acquisition of general methods of tutoring as well as specific tutoring techniques needed for specific courses. Teacher-tutor seminars, teacher-tutor conferences, and formal instruction will supplement the extensive tutoring experiences.
Prerequisite: Consent of the department
Required textbooks/ course materials:
No textbook or course materials are required to purchase for this course. This is a ZTC, no textbook cost course.
See first-day handout.
Discipline-level learning outcomes:
Demonstrate Basic Mathematical Skills and Knowledge
M-1 Apply arithmetic, algebraic, or geometric skills to solve mathematical problems.
M-2 Represent basic mathematical information verbally, numerically, graphically, or symbolically.
M-3 Use technology to solve mathematical problems.
M-4 Interpret mathematical models such as formulas, graphs, tables and schematics.
M-5 Use mathematical processes in solving real world applications.
Course-level learning outcomes:
|Course-level student learning outcomes||Discipline-level learning outcomes||Assessment methods|
M-1, M-2, M-4
M-1, M-2, M-3, T-1
|No artifact will be submitted for program assessment as MAT 2905 is not a general education course.|
Means of accomplishing learning outcomes:
Teacher Centered: Instructor will demonstrate specific problem-solving techniques used in Chipola Math classes.
Seminars/conferences: Students and instructor(s) will meet to discuss assigned readings.
Role modeling: Students and instructors actively demonstrate various tutoring techniques.
Student Centered: Student will work as tutors in the lab to provide individualized help, and will keep both a time sheet recording hours worked and a log of the number of students tutored and the time spent tutoring each student.
Office Hours: The instructor will be available during office hours for individual assistance. The instructor’s schedule can be found posted on their office door and/or via their individual web site.
