The strength of the PPP is the synchronous, online personal tutoring sessions. For each 2-hour online session, a math tutor leads a small group of students in a virtual math class. These sessions help to clear student’s misconceptions, fill gaps, strengthen the student’s mathematical foundation, and help move each student to higher levels of mathematical understanding. The 2-hour online sessions are “live” and interactive. Each student has an opportunity to ask questions, discuss math content, solve math problems, and answer questions posed by the tutor. The student’s tutor is an experienced math school teacher who has been trained in all forms of technology for the program.
INDEPENDENT WORK OPPORTUNITIES
Students enrolled in the Personalized Precalculus Program will have access to high quality videos and review sheets they can access when they need. Tutors will assign individual students problems from the review sheets based upon each student’s individual needs. The review sheets and videos are accessed through the TAMU Learning Management System (eCampus.tamu.edu) and will be available to the student for an entire academic year.
