ABSTRACT In Fall 2004, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) piloted a modeling-based approach to college algebra. This paper describes the course and an assessment that was conducted to determine the effect of this approach on student achievement in comparison to a traditional approach to college algebra. The results show that compared with their counterparts in the traditional sections, students in the model-based approach had a higher success rate in the college algebra course; performed… Expand
