Developmental Math Boot Camp in Kentucky

Owensboro Community & Technical College (OCTC) is a public, two-year college that is one of the sixteen institutions that make up the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS). OCTC awards associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates in a variety of disciplines. They serve approximately 4,300 students, mostly from the surrounding Daviess and Ohio counties. More than half the students attend part-time (57%), and more than half are female (58%).

The Math Department faculty at Owensboro Community & Technical College offered students an intensive, one-week math boot camp to finish the requirements for the developmental math class they were enrolled in that semester. At the end of the week, students would be able to take the COMPASS Algebra test and place into a corresponding math class based on their scores.
