Recruiting and retaining engineering majors in colleges to meet the workforce demand for engineers continues to be challenging. Success in the engineering calculus course sequence is vital to the attainment of this goal. Many universities have seen the need to support students with weak mathematics skills in order to retain a diverse group of prospective engineers. Previous studies have shown that improving precalculus can be effective in improving placement scores for enrolling in the first engineering calculus course.
