Integrating Adaptive Learning in Mathematics

A Case Study of Adaptive Learning Technology in Mathematics

Mathematics is a required component of many community college degree pathways, yet large numbers of students come to college needing additional support and struggle to complete gateway math courses—courses in which low-income and minority students are often overrepresented. This case study, examines the efforts of seven colleges in their implementation of adaptive courseware in gateway math, suggests that the adaptive courseware provided necessary corequisite and/or basic skills support and valuable guided practice outside of the classroom setting. All seven community colleges participating in the Every Learner Network implemented adaptive courseware to help students succeed in gateway math courses.
