Study Skills in Developmental Math
Professors often say that the #1 hurdle to success for many developmental math students is their lack of basic study skills. Pearson offers two math-specific study skills manuals available for either standalone purchase or packaged with textbook/MyMathLab access.
- Friendly and Relatable
Math Study Skills, 2/e, by Alan Bass of San Diego Mesa College, outlines good study habits to help students improve in areas such as time management, organization, and taking tests. Alan Bass addresses the challenges many students face in a math class, with tips and techniques to help.
Strategies for Success: Study Skills for the College Math Student, 2/e, by Lynn Marecek and MaryAnne Anthony-Smith of Santa Anna College, provides a series of activities designed to foster success in college mathematics. This workbook contains 44 activities, in ready-to-use worksheet format.
