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.

If an institution has multiple mathematics pathways in place and the ultimate goal of reform is to better meet the needs
 of students, then an essential element in the implementation process is guiding students into the path that is best suited
 to their educational goals. But what is the best way to communicate to freshmen—many of whom might already be feeling overwhelmed—what their course choices are and what the consequences of those choices might be? One college found success in an elegant, innovative solution. 


This summary is part of the Charles A. Dana Center’s “Notes from the Field” series, which highlights examples of innovative practices from colleges, universities, and systems.
