Be part of the growing network of 60+ institutions that are solving the developmental math challenge.
Each year, an average of 500,000 students will not complete a college level math course, thus creating a barrier to reaching their academic and career goals. We are changing that.
Transforming mathematics from a gatekeeper to a gateway takes more than a textbook. It takes a system. Here’s how we do it:
Relevant and challenging content that supports career readiness and further mathematics learning.
A collaborative instructional approach that builds students' flexible expertise and confidence in learning mathematics.
Educators, administrators, and researchers work to transform mathematics education inside and outside their classrooms.
We can accomplish more together than even the best of us can accomplish alone.
Everyone in the network plays an important role.
Carnegie Math Pathways students have been much more likely to successfully complete college-level math and developmental math sequences and do so in half the time.
Faculty members enrich the learning experience in their classrooms and lead the continuous improvement efforts of the curriculum and pedagogy across the entire network.
Administrators remove barriers and create changes that enable the greatest number of students to benefit from Carnegie Math Pathways course offerings and improve success rates.
So far, more than 20,000 students across 15 states have enrolled in Statway and Quantway, and since launching in 2011, these programs have consistently seen triple and double the success rates, respectively, in half the time for students placing into developmental math.
Voices from the field:
“The Quantway approach has been shown to really help those students get over the mathematical hurdle and be able to achieve their educational aims.”
Jim Willis,Professor of Mathematics, Sinclair Community College
“Because I have had such a turn around in the way I feel as someone who is competent at doing math, it has started to translate into the other things that I do in my life. I feel like I am growing a new capacity."
Student,Carnegie Math Pathways
“One thing I feel about teaching is that so much of it is done in isolation. Being part of this network has been wonderful – just interacting with other teachers both in my own college and across the country that are working on this project.”
Kristin Egan,Cuyahoga Community College
“Countless students have told us what it means to them to have finally made it through mathematics, to have tried again and again and not be successful and then to be successful.”
Karon Klipple,Executive Director, Carnegie Math Pathways
