Original Post:  
KCC Faculty & Staff: SmarThinking is hosting three webinars on January 19th. If you are not familiar with SmarThinking, these sessions will offer you a chance to learn more about what SmarThinking has to offer our students and our institution. If you are already familiar with SmarThinking this is a chance to ask question that may not have been addressed previously. 

Because faculty and staff from other institutions will be attending these sessions, we will not have the opportunity to ask questions specific to our CC. However, if we want a more personalized session, the folks at SmarThinking will be happy to host such a session at a later time. As always I will be happy to help you any way I can. Available times are below. To register, go to the URL provided. You will receive an confirmation.

Available sessions - Thursday, January 19, 2012

College Conversation about Mathematics

Did you know that only 10% of students testing into MATH 22 will ever make it through college mathematics?
KCC Ohana, You are invited to a talk-story session with the Math Department and Jon Kalk. We will present data on how KCC math students do compared to national statistics. We will also offer some solutions to address this complicated math problem. In order to make a difference to those who tested into the lowest level of remedial/developmental math, we need to consider an alternative to how we do mathematics here at KCC.

Since math affects almost everyone here, as a prerequisite or program requirement, your valuable input will be much appreciated.
Date: Friday, January 27, 2012
Time: 2:00 – 3:30
Location: NSCI 110 
Please come to enjoy yummy treats, listen, and offer us your thoughts.
