*Friday, August 3, 1:30 p.m. - 5:05 p.m., Governor's Square 17, Plaza Building*

### Description:

Many students enter college not yet ready for college-level mathematics. For some, embedded just-in-time review can fill in gaps, but for underprepared students many colleges and universities are showing greater success with “corequisite” courses to increase completion, especially for underserved populations. Talks describing the curricular change process are welcome, especially examples of successful responses to rapid large-scale implementation requirements.
