Many colleges and universities offer courses, such as Remedial Mathematics or Elementary Algebra, that underprepared students must complete before they can take a college-level mathematics course. However, nationally there is a push to replace remedial mathematics courses with corequisite courses instead. This design allows students to enter directly into their general education mathematics course instead of first overcoming the barrier of a remedial course. Corequisite mathematics courses were implemented across the 23-campus California State University system during the 2018-19 academic year. I will discuss the design and implementation of a corequisite structure at California State University, Monterey Bay, in particular focusing on the redesign of our Introductory Statistics course and corresponding corequisite course. I will discuss the rationale for moving to this structure, the logistics of making this change, the design and pedagogy used for Introductory Statistics and its corequisite, as well as preliminary findings about student success in our first year implementation.
