Abstract Engineering Technology faculty regularly encounter undergraduates taking courses in their professional field of study who lack adequate preparation in mathematics. Additionally, students facing difficulty in applying mathematical concepts may be due to the fact that examples from engineering technology disciplines are not widely used in mathematics courses. Also, a recent report by a select group of engineering technology educators and industry leaders calls for substantive changes in the ways we recruit and educate engineers for the 21st century. The report suggests developing curricula which are relevant to the careers of students, attractive to a more diverse student population, and connected to the needs of society.

In response to these issues and the growing demand to retain minority students in engineering and technology programs, we developed a problem-solving based mathematics course. The goals for creating this course were to: 1) increase retention rates of minority students enrolled in engineering and technology programs, 2) introduce engineering problem-solving methodologies in

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
