With the development of multiple mathematics pathways for students at MSU, the population of College Algebra students are now primarily calculus bound. It is important that we do our best to ensure that these students leave College Algebra with the mathematical concepts and skills, as well as learning and self-assessment strategies required to be successful in subsequent STEM courses. This presentation will share the lessons learned over a 3-year journey of curriculum development and provide an overview of the content and pedagogy included in the one and two semester versions of college algebra that will be offered beginning fall semester 2018.
