Some of them are old.*How many of you were here last year?Some of these are updates from last years session here.Others are new.Were going to spend most time on the last oneIntermediate algebra the political perfect storm*For those of you who have been sharing my free Youtube algebra modules with your students.Now all 48 are available covering everything in elementary and intermediate algebra*The first 17 have been updated to animated graphics using Mission College Basic Skills Initiative FundsYoutube search is eccentricEasiest way to find them is with this playlistWhen the money ran out I did a low tech capture of the remaining ones a mixture of elementary and intermediatePlease use the, share them, send feedback*Remarkable as a combined political statement of what UC, CSU and CCC all expect.Sadly, often ignored by outsiders with their own agenda or even our own colleagues who dont know it exists.So read it and talk about it with your colleagues and students.Notices Approaches attitudes of students and instructors*This RP Group project is overMake better use of evidence to help studentsTen inquiry guides available online*Research project with RP group and UC BerkeleyNorton sick so no presentationsTen working papers available online*National attention to community collegesFaculty leadership structure is importantSanta Barbara City College both years*The long history of trying to make course articulation and student transfer simplerHow many of these acronyms do you remember?C-ID makes it easier to move coursesTransfer Degrees give students some guarantees</p><p>*Colleges moving along with degreesNow 11 course descriptors finalized and 8 more very closeBut only 144 college approved coursesMake the content descriptions in your course outline match*This years hot button political issue.Four conversations all converging on intermediate algebraWhere should we talk about it?*Heres what were going to do today*High school origin. High political profileCommon standards in Math and EnglishNow adopted by 45 statesBasic Question What Math and English do students need to succeed in college/workplaceSurprisingly the same answer*Two possible interpretations of the answerResearch from original study becomes murkyBackwards data</p><p>*What will really happen it all comes down to the testingMathematical Practice is like ICAS Approaches attitudes of students and instructorsGED encountering difficulties practical and political*What are the implications for our system?*UC/CSU have a different agenda.CSU Executive Order 1033 - Courses in subarea B4 shall have an explicit intermediate algebra prerequisite.2008 removed local discretion</p><p>*How do we encourage innovation/alternatives and increase success?Possible negative side effects if we dont get the politics rightWhat about our graduation competencies*Hal will briefly describe some of the work on alternative pathways and some of the stumbling blocks*Where would we make this happenRecall how long and difficult was the graduation competencies conversation.*Linda will briefly describe activities at the Academic Senate Fall Session that led to their resolution to refer the issue to Executive Committee*Now lets do some work togetherTalk with your neighborMark each topic as necessary for one of the three levels or not necessary at allnecessary with the same interpretation as prerequisite (some odd exceptions/more than would be nice)*Lets talk about some of them*Dont let yourself become the penguin</p></li></ul>
