A major obstacle to the timely completion of an academic degree program is lack of preparedness of students, particularly in the area of math education.
Resources, tools, and events are highlighted on this site to provide a centralized, online platform to support implementation and scale of mathematics pathways across Arkansas's higher education institutions.
Data at both the national and state levels indicate that not completing a gateway mathematics course within the first year of instruction correlates with a reduced chance of student success and timely graduation.
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.
From 2015-2018, Michigan was one of six states engaged in the Dana Center's Mathematics Pathways to Completion project.

This 13–minute video, led by Susan Bickerstaff of CCRC, discusses five themes that emerged as a part of evaluating the MPC project.
Mathematics pathways are a promising approach for improving student outcomes, but if implementation happens one college at a time and without statewide policy support, the potential for scaling is diminished.
