This case study provides an example of two simple interventions adopted in a Pre-Calculus course. This was done to keep students motivated and persevering through the semester as well as a way to help them prepare for upcoming examinations in the midst of COVID-19 quarantine. Though these interventions are proposed for an elementary general education Pre-Calculus course, it can be adopted for any course seeing similar effects in their DFW rates due to lack of student motivation and study skills deficiency.
