Presentation locations and times TBD

Description

This session will present findings from a study conducted within the Carnegie Math Pathways that explored how instructional reflection tools and supportive coaching relationships can help faculty deepen their practice around two key aspects of mathematics reform pedagogy – Productive Persistence (tenacity and use of good strategies) and social justice.

Presenter

Ann Edwards, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Numerous states and institutions are now implementing mathematics pathways in an effort to improve student outcomes and reduce time to completion. Carnegie Math Pathways -Statway and Quantway – are a holistic reform approach designed to give students options that appropriately prepare them and are relevant to their academic and career goals. More than just a curriculum, the Carnegie Math Pathways operates as a collaborative Networked Improvement Community (NIC) that engages and supports individual educators and whole institutions to transform the mathematical teaching and learning experience for all students. Believing that we can accomplish more together than we can alone, the Carnegie Math Pathways have taken a radical, systems-approach to tackling the low success rates in college math. This session will focus on lessons learned in implementing effective institution- and classroom-level reform and share out the newest data about the effectiveness of Statway and Quantway in terms of student success in mathematics as well as transfer and completion rates. Participants will examine key research-based design elements of effective math reform efforts and explore how Carnegie’s Statway and Quantway incorporate these design elements. These elements will also be illustrated through demo lessons and a productive struggle activity. Finally, the session will feature student voices and faculty perspectives from Carnegie Math Pathways network institutions on the successes and challenges of incorporating the programs on their campus.

Presenters

  • Ann Edwards, Carnegie Math Pathways
  • Lewis Hosie, Carnegie Math Pathways
  • Dan Ray, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Implementing innovative curriculum and pedagogy requires a well-designed support system for faculty members as they teach. Participants will examine a comprehensive package of just-in-time instructional support materials for developmental mathematics, developed by faculty, and learn how to apply user-centered design principles to support planning, guide instruction, and improve student outcomes.

Presenter

Dan Ray, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Participants will learn about curriculum strategies that are responsive to redesign pressures to get more students successfully through mathematics faster. Leave with design strategies for corequisite and accelerated courses and pathways, and understand how these structures can impact student success.

Presenters

  • Ann Edwards, Carnegie Math Pathways
  • John Kellermeier, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Participants will learn and discuss strategies for incorporating issues of social justice into high quality math lessons. Exemplar lessons from Carnegie Math Pathways will be discussed in depth, including teaching strategies to support students’ productive and respectful conversations around the topics. Poster session.

Presenters

  • Lewis Hosie, Carnegie Math Pathways
  • Scott Strother, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Can students learn more mathematics when instructors implement classroom interventions to promote Productive Persistence, or academic mindsets and use of good learning strategies? Discover how our national network of faculty used rapid cycles of testing and everyday classroom data to understand students’ Productive Persistence and adapt interventions for their classrooms.

Presenter

Ann Edwards, Carnegie Math Pathways

Description

Explore the design principles of online courses that drive instructor presence, engender a growth mindset in students, and increase student sense of belonging. A mathematics instructor and an instructional system specialist from a nationwide math pathways network will discuss devising such principles, and demonstrate implementation strategies.

Presenters

  • Ruth Carlson, Chippewa Valley Technical College
  • Lewis Hosie, Carnegie Math Pathways
