Self-Paced Learning: The Next Game-Changer for College Mathematics
Abstract: In the college math classroom, especially at developmental or general education levels, students vary greatly in motivations and abilities, and self-paced learning can be used to improve student success in this environment. This paper describes the concept of self-paced learning and ways to implement it in college mathematics courses. The paper also reports on the author’s experiment running a self-paced math course at Metropolitan State University and discusses future developments in and challenges for self-paced learning.
