Failing to meet remedial math requirements is a known barrier to degree completion. On May 31 from 3-4 pm ET, the Minority Serving Community Colleges and Affiliates Group welcomes Dr. Elizabeth Zachry Rutschow from MDRC for a webinar on how the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways model reforms the traditional developmental math course sequence by providing math instruction most applicable to a student’s major while increasing the likelihood of success in college-level math classes.
Dr. Margo Keys, from Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC), will describe CVTC’s implementation of four distinct math pathways, including the Carnegie Math Pathways (Statway and Quantway), to improve student achievement in mathematics. The presenters will discuss the benefits and challenges associated with implementing alternative math pathways.
