   Abstract = {Teaching and learning occur both inside and outside of the
             classroom, but undergraduates' transition to college
             mathematics are affected by many factors outside of the
             classroom. A collaboration at Duke between mathematics
             faculty and the Academic Resource Center (ARC) originally
             designed to fill knowledge gaps gradually adapted into a
             tool to help less well-prepared students transition to the
             calculus curriculum. The collaboration to monitor student
             progress and the adaptation of research tools grew initial
             voluntary algebra review sessions into an algebra review and
             study group program that supports students through the two
             course sequence of Laboratory Calculus with Functions I and
             II. The collaborators have applied for an NSF grant proposal
             to transition the program into the structure of the course
             labs to build a formative feedback loop between the
             students, undergraduate TAs, and mathematics and ARC
             instructors. The grant proposal builds on a collaboration
             between the ARC and Chemistry faculty to help pre-med
             students navigate a four-course Chemistry sequence through
             Organic Chemistry, which trains TAs to monitor not only
             content understanding, but self-regulation and metacognitive
