Making Math Pathways a Reality
Ensuring that all students have access to high quality math pathways requires work across multiple levels of the system to establish a small number of rigorous mathematics pathways that apply to degree programs predictably across institutions. The Dana Center provides guidance and resources to support this work at the state, institutional, and classroom levels. Efforts at each level can be organized into four stages of work:
- Getting Started: Leaders identify need(s), commit to action, and prepare to engage stakeholders.
- Planning: Cross-functional and/or cross-sector leadership group collects and reviews data to define the problem, establish goals, and identify strategies.
- Implementing: Working groups and appropriate personnel engage in activities outlined in an implementation plan under the oversight of the leadership group.
- Continuous Improvement: Working groups and appropriate personnel engage in activities outlined in communication and evaluation plans under the oversight of the leadership group.
