Students and Mathematics - By The Numbers

When students graduate from college and move into today's workforce, more than 88 percent of them must understand and perform basic mathematics as part of their jobs. Competence in basic college-level math is key to the best choices in rewarding career opportunities. Too many students are blocked from these choices because they struggle to succeed in their math courses.

Many students struggle with traditional math courses and universities have recognized that a radical redesign of these courses is needed. Most students do better in mathematics when they actively do the mathematics themselves, rather than just sitting and listening.

The Kent State University Math Emporium builds on this successful approach in a welcoming learning environment with a personalized program that uses adaptive software and one-on-one support to help students learn what they need at a pace that works best for them.
