Student preparedness in entry level college mathematics courses has decreased in the past. In order for students to be successful in these courses, early intervention is required. Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) has implemented an early intervention program, the Mathematics Enrichment Program (MEP), which will target freshman students entering College Algebra courses in Spring 2009. This project is part of the STEM Recruitment, Retention, and Graduation program, recently funded by the US Department of Education. This paper will highlight the components of the project, most importantly the extent of the intervention, how the project is planned, and preliminary results.
