Does Your College Have a Math Concierge?
Angela Pascopella, eCampus News
Some students at Rio Salado College have little memory or knowledge of math concepts either bcause they are older than the average college student or left high school early. Rather than letting students get stuck in remedial classes that might block them from reaching their education goals, the community college decided to try something new: pair technology with human help to increase student success.
The Math Emporium is an informal, cafe-style study and practice space to help students navigate basic math. It's also staffed by a math "concierge" who acts as tutor, small-group presenter, and coach.
