Changing the Equation: Redesigning Developmental Math Changing the Equation was a major program funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to engage the nation’s community colleges in a successful redesign of their remedial/developmental math sequences. Participating institutions improved student learning outcomes while reducing costs for both students and institutions using NCAT's proven redesign methodology. Each participant redesigned its entire developmental math sequenceall sections of all developmental courses offeredusing NCAT's Emporium Model and commercially available instructional software. Each redesign modularized the curriculum, allowing students to progress through the developmental course sequence at a faster pace if possible or at a slower pace if necessary, spending the amount of time needed to master the course content. Institutions fully implemented their redesign plans in fall 2011.
