RISE Math Development Plan has been
conceived and designed to strengthen the
academic quality of mathematics programming
at Lake-Sumter State College.
LSSC Title III – Goals
Goal 1
Curriculum and Delivery Redesign
(Math Emporiums)
The Grant is designed to increase student retention and
degree completion by transforming the traditional math
class to a new modularized, technologically enhanced
curricular approach that fully supports a more
individualized learning modality.
LSSC Title III – Goals
Goal 2
Partnerships & RISE Summer Math Academy
The Grant is designed to facilitate partnerships to
accelerate high school students to college-ready
status, while providing them with the knowledge,
skills, and abilities to accelerate to dual enrollment
college credit math courses before high school
graduation; thereby increasing first-time-in-college
(FTIC), at-risk students success rates in college credit
math courses, retention, and degree completion.
