Paul Nolting has tracked an interesting trend when it comes to students learning developmental math: The more you take the same algebra class, the less chance you have to pass it.
Nolting, a learning specialist who is also an enrollment services advisor at the State College of Florida's Manatee-Sarasota Campus, has studied development math success rates of students at Valencia Community College and noticed that, on average, some 50 percent passed on the first try, but the number dropped to roughly 30 percent on second attempt and an additional 25 percent on a third time.
