Teaching developmental math is an important challenge, because math opens doors for our students and allows them additional opportunities. This presentation discusses some research, ideas, and philosophies for making math more accessible for a larger portion of our student body. In addition, a new Interactive Developmental Math (IDM) program will be discussed and demonstrated. IDM allows students to be guided interactively through an entire course similar to how a live tutor would teach. IDM is particularly helpful for students who have difficulty reading the text or organizing their own study plan.
