The program for the January 2012 Joint Mathematics Meetings is available at: http://www.ams.org/notices/201107/rtx110701026p.pdf

The following is listed in the middle of the left column on Page 1036

"Developmental Mathematics Education: Helping Underprepared Students Transition to College-Level Mathematics, organized by Kimberly Presser and J. Winston Crawley, Shippensburg University; Friday afternoon. The struggle to assist underprepared students to be successful in collegelevel mathematics is not new. However, in recent years, the number of underprepared or math anxious students coming to our colleges and universities has been growing. In order to help these students to be successful, we need to undertake new strategies for support services; courses offered; and perhaps even in our programs themselves. This session invites papers on all aspects of developmental mathematics education. In particular, what classroom practices are effective with such students and how does research in student learning inform these practices? For students interested in math-intensive majors such as the sciences, how can we best prepare these students for several subsequent mathematics courses? How can we best coordinate support services with the courses offered in our mathematics departments? We are interested in hearing
presentations from across the spectrum of community colleges through four-year universities at this session."
