Many UH CC-bound HS grads need remedial or developmental courses in math – maybe Fall 2006 placement test data and enrollment data

Note: Percentages may vary greatly due to lack of common placement/course numbering. Colleges currently define which group to count students in. Fall 2006 and 2007 data are as received from the colleges.

DOE raising mathematics preparation of all graduates

High school students may graduate in the following school years with courses as low as the following:

High schools students earning BOE Recognition Diploma will graduate with 4 credits and more rigorous math preparation:

Not enough students performing well in UH pipeline to higher level math courses

Nots:

Courses selected are those with enrollment >500 for xx semesters (Fall 2005 to Spring 2008). Data combines enrollment across UH campuses and terms. “Success” is defined as a student earning a grade of A, B, or C in the course.

Only 1/5 of entering UHCC students successfully completed a remedial developmental math course in Fall 2006

Note: The Achieving the Dream cohort includes entering (includes transfers), full and part time, degree seeking students.

Preparing HS grads to increase math achievement requires qualified and effective teachers

HI projecting significant annual teacher vacancies and UH production falls short

Number of teachers statewide

In mathematics, UH producing too few potential candidates to fill DOE vacancies

Only 47.8% of secondary school math courses are taught by “highly qualified” teachers

Let’s improve math achievement!

- Improve math pipeline leading to “career and college ready” math
- Improve alignment of courses so that students transition smoothly between institutions and courses
- Prepare more qualified and effective mathematics teachers/instructors
