Counselor Publishes Article in National Review

Dr. Paul Nolting, a recognized mathematics learning specialist and a counselor at Manatee Community College (MCC), co-authored an article that appears in the spring 2008 edition of the "American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) Review."

Nolting and his wife, Kimberly, wrote "Matching Instructional Methods With Student Learning Preferences: A Research-based Initiative for Improving Students' Success in Mathematics" for the Review. The article focuses on how math instructors can teach mathematics through different modalities to improve students success. The AMATYC is the only organization exclusively devoted to providing a national forum for the improvement of mathematics instruction in the first two years of college. It boasts approximately 2,500 individual members and more than 100 institutional members in the United States and Canada.

Nolting is a nationally recognized author, consultant and mathematics learning trainer. He has conducted Public Broadcasting Service television specials, and published award-winning books and CDs. With MCC since 1978, he also has consulted with numerous other colleges and universities on mathematics success strategies, and served as a presenter at state and national conferences. Nolting has a Ph.D. from the University of South Florida, where he also taught at the graduate level.
