Quantitative reasoning pathway
Quantway is a set of quantitative reasoning course options designed to promote success in mathematics and to develop quantitatively literate students.
Quantway curriculum provides students with a firm conceptual mathematical understanding in order to master developmental or college-level goals and use quantitative tools intelligently in their daily lives.
Quantway courses are taught using a unique pedagogical approach that promotes collaborative learning and addresses social-emotional factors that affect student success. They also employ innovative curricula supported by aligned assessments and an online student platform.
Quantway includes a set of 1-term offerings that are designed to meet a range of developmental and college-level student needs, and access is just $59 for students.
What One Student Says About Quantway
"Quantway has made me look at math in a different way. I appreciate it more and I understand it more. It'll help you with your everyday life."
Terrence Banks,Former Quantway student at Cuyahoga Community College

Supporting Students In-Person and Online
Launched this year, our online courses are modeled after our in-person Quantway and Statway courses, which benefit from 10 years of research and evidence-based instruction and pedagogy.

We are offering online faculty certification to teach our virtual courses this fall.
In light of Covid-19, these certification courses are currently free of charge.
The Carnegie Math Pathways courses were created and continue to be improved upon by faculty for faculty and use research-proven pedagogy to engage students in rich learning experiences. They are taught using a unique approach that promotes active, collaborative learning around real-life situations and incorporates embedded social-emotional supports that positively affect student success.
Quantway is a great math option for students in non-STEM fields who benefit from quantitative reasoning for their other courses and for their career path. There are Quantway offerings for students who are ready for college-level quantitative reasoning, as well as for students who need developmental support or who need a stand-alone development course.
Quantway was designed as a quantitative reasoning pathway for students in non-STEM majors. Should students in this pathway need or desire to take pre-calculus courses, we have designed a set of open source Bridge materials that provide students with the algebraic reasoning skills they need to transition into college-level algebra and/or transfer to a STEM field. These, along with our full sample curriculum materials, are available on our Explorer portal, which you can sign up for here.
Additionally, a great new option for students interested in a STEM field is our College Algebra with Corequisite course. Designed with the same emphasis on collaborative learning and real-world contexts as our Statway and Quantway courses, this course combines a one-term, college-level algebra course with a corresponding corequisite component aimed at developing students’ algebraic reasoning skills in support of the college-level learning outcomes. The materials are currently available for those who wish to pilot this course. For more information, contact us at email@example.com.
Yes. The Carnegie Math Pathways program offers a unique approach to learning mathematics and engages math faculty in new ways of teaching. To help them successfully launch their courses, we require faculty to participate in one of our multiple training opportunities so they become familiar with our distinct pedagogy, platform, and faculty resources.
To support faculty and their busy schedules, we offer a wide variety of training ranging from individual, self-paced courses to in-person trainings led by experienced Carnegie Math Pathways Faculty Mentors. Our newest offering is a self-paced online faculty certification course designed to give faculty the information and support they need to prepare to teach our new fully online courses this fall. More information about our faculty certification is available on our Explorer portal. Click on the Get Started button to start exploring further.
