Strategies for Academic Success In New Editions – Free Download Included

Preparation for College Mathematics and Developmental Mathematics new edition textbooks

The National Student Clearinghouse® Research Center™ studied a cohort of more than 2.2 million degree-seeking students who first started college in fall 2011 (both at 2-year and 4-year institutions in the U.S.). Six years later, 43.1% of that cohort had not completed their degree.*

Oftentimes, low completion rates are due to students not accessing the right resources or having the necessary study skills. Not all students enter your math class adequately prepared to juggle the responsibilities of both the course and their general college experience.

Hawkes wants to set students up for success — that’s why the new editions of Developmental Mathematics and Preparation for College Mathematics offer Strategies for Academic Success, an entire section devoted to preparing students for the challenges they may face and the skills they’ll need to acquire to aid them throughout their academic careers.

View the Strategies for Academic Success here.

The Strategies for Academic Success cover the following:

  1. How to Read a Math Text
  2. Tips for Success in a Math Course
  3. Tips for Improving Math Test Scores
  4. Practice, Patience, and Persistence!
  5. Note Taking
  6. Do I Need a Math Tutor?
  7. Tips for Improving Your Memory
  8. Overcoming Anxiety
  9. Online Resources
  10. Prepare for a Final Math Exam
  11. Managing Your Time Effectively

    • Hi, Dean!

      Great question! While we don’t have a course specifically called “College Math,” we have several options, depending on course goals and needs. We have College Algebra, Viewing Life Mathematically (a quantitative reasoning course), statistics courses ranging from Beginning Statistics to our new Discovering Statistics and Data text, Precalculus, and more. View them all here: http://www.hawkeslearning.com/Products.htm.
