This resource explores mathematics as a barrier to student success and degree completion for millions of higher education students. Further, it examines two major drivers — mismatch of math content to student's academic and career needs, and long developmental sequences — linked to these issues and current multiple math pathways initiatives that show promise for assisting students to complete their entry-level mathematics coursework in one year or less.

Currently, most state- and system-level policy supports the transferability of credits but does not account for the applicability of those credits to a student’s program of study. Several states have taken steps to address this issue directly. While each state’s approach to the problem is distinct, all of them can be instructive in better understanding the nuanced policy and planning considerations needed to better serve students in this area.

The Mathematics Pathways to Completion (MPC) is a major effort supporting six states in moving from a broad vision for mathematics pathways to institutional implementation of the DCMP model at scale. As of 2018, almost three years into their efforts, MPC states have done exceptional work as they move into the final phases of implementation. Read through their activities to learn some of what’s involved as you plan or implement math pathways at your institution.

Students who are struggling in mathematics can often find academic support in the form of one-on-one tutoring and drop-in help labs, which are commonplace at both two-year and four-year institutions. These supports provide personalized interventions and often play a key role in helping students succeed in gateway mathematics courses. Identifying effective practices in these types of student services, however, is a challenge that many institutions face. Oklahoma State University sought to address this challenge, which led to a revitalized mathematics support center that not only helps students through use of data-proven practices, but also serves as a center for ongoing research to improve its student support practices
