The Developmental Emporium textbook contains twenty-three modules—roughly one and a half modules per week for a sixteen-week semester. If you need to modify the pace and cover the material more quickly, the following modules work well together:
- Module 1: Whole Numbers and Module 3: Integers (moving the last section to Module 2: The Language of Algebra). If students have a strong grasp of operations on different values, these two modules could be paired up.
- Module 10: Linear Equations and Module 11: Linear Inequalities. If students have a solid understanding of solving equations, these two modules could be paired up.
- Module 20: Linear Functions and Function Notation and Module 21: Quadratic, Polynomial, and Piecewise Functions
- Module 22: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions and Module 23: Exponential and Logarithmic Equations.
This course can be delivered in a variety of ways, but it is key to stay aware of the specific learning outcomes students are struggling with in order to help them, especially if this content is expected to be mastered in a self-paced environment. Please see the detailed Developmental Emporium Learning Outcomes for this course and adjust as needed.
