The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education have identified college completion as their No. 1 goal and are working to increase the number of degrees and certificates earned in Oklahoma by an average of 1,700 per year, resulting in a 67 percent increase by 2023.
The Math Pathways Task Force, organized in October 2014 pursuant to House Bill 1042, strives to identify alternative entry-level mathematics courses most effective and beneficial to each academic major. The task force works with faculty, administrators, professional associations, and state legislators to implement its recommendations.
For many students, the required mathematics course becomes a barrier to degree completion, either because they are reluctant to sign up for a mathematics course, or because they sign up for a mathematics course that is not appropriate for their program of study. It is important that students take the right mathematics course for their program of study or major. Ideally they should complete this first mathematics course during their first semester of enrollment.
Math Pathways is a mathematics course or sequence of courses that students take to meet the requirements of their programs of study.
