How the Book Serves Students and Instructors


Although the book is addressed to students, it is just as valuable for mathematics  instructors, as well as instructors in the other STEM disciplines of science, technology, and engineering. It is especially valuable for those instructors who have not been formally trained in the theory of learning and the science of teaching. This statement on the front cover of the book supports this position: Learning is best achieved when student and instructor roles are mutually supportive and based on sound learning principles. The book draws on many education areas, including educational psychology, pedagogical research, learning technologies, measurement and evaluation, reading and writing in content areas, and models of learning, thinking, and problem solving.


Instructors need to look at the book’s content and the exercises in the assignment manual from their perspectives. For many issues that arise in a mathematics course, there is a learning, or student side, and a teaching, or instructor side. Many suggestions for students have their counterpart suggestions for instructors. Teaching and learning are the two sides of a coin.



Two Important Features of How to Succeed in College Mathematics, Second Edition


  1. Learning Mathematics is not discussed in the book in isolation from other college-life issues bearing on college students. Most things in the lives of college student are connected—when one thing in a student’s life is affected, it usually is the case that other things are positively or negatively affected. Thus, throughout the book, Richard M. Dahlke addresses what it means to be a college student, as well as a college mathematics student.

  2. How to Succeed in College Mathematics can also be described as a book on “learning how to learn,” or a book supporting students in becoming self-reliant or independent learners. Therefore, it will benefit students in any course they are taking, mathematics or otherwise. This is especially true for mathematics or the mathematics-related STEM disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology, geology, computer science, and engineering.
