The mathematics tutoring center at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) provides supplemental learning resources to students. Despite this, required introductory mathematics courses experience high failure rates. This project aimed to improve the effectiveness of the tutoring center for these (and other) students through the use of e-learning software (ASSISTments). Coupling interviews and surveys with a research experimental design, we found positive sentiments regarding the application of ASSISTments and identified key reasons students struggle with the Basic Mathematics course.
