Pre-College Math Reform Update [A]

text item
John Mitchell • Clark College

Clark College is currently restructuring and simplifying its pre-college offerings, aiming for a higher proportion of students to successfully complete college-level courses within their first year. We are implementing a two-quarter applied algebra sequence to better serve those destined for less technical college-level courses, along with “co-requisite remediation” of targeted pre-college topics in college-level STEM and business courses. We overview the course structure and its motivation, outline how we are addressing teacher training, advising and other project impacts, and discuss what we have learned so far—as well as the challenges that lie ahead. There will also be some time for group discussion and reflection, so participants can share pathways ideas and best practices.
