Integrating Study Skills into Corequisite Courses

National research indicates that student affective characteristics represent 25% to 41% of students’ math grades. Institutions can improve student success by teaching math study skills, test-anxiety reduction, test-taking skills, and self-efficacy, especially in corequisite courses.

Study skills expert Dr. Paul Nolting discusses ways to integrate these study skills into a corequisite structure. Dr. Nolting highlights this topic, as well as new features and enhancements from the upcoming release of his new edition of Winning at Math, which improves students’ abilities to learn math and make better grades.

The webinar provides:

  1. An overview of corequisite designs
  2. Math study skills strategies that can be implemented in corequisite courses
  3. Information on test anxiety
  4. Test preparation tips and how to prepare for finals
  5. An assessment of math study skills using Hawkes Learning
  6. How the Winning at Math 7th edition has changed and will help in corequisite courses
