But, on February 7, 2014 the Lumina Foundation and Gallup released a poll on how business leaders view higher education.

“While 96%of Chief Academic Officers think they are equipping their graduates for the work force, just 11% of employers strongly agree.”

The New Mathways Project (NMP) Model

A systemic approach to improving student success by reforming developmental and gateway mathematics based on four fundamental principles:

  • Multiple pathways aligned to specific but broad fields of study
  • Acceleration that allows students to complete a college-level math course more quickly
  • Intentional use of strategies to help students develop skills as learners that are directly linked to their courses
  • Curriculum design and pedagogy based on proven practice and linked to improvement protocols
slide28

STATISTICS PATHWAY is designed for students seeking a college-level statistics course as part of their general education requirement for majors in fields including:

  • Nursing
  • Social Work
  • Criminal Justice
  • QUANTITATIVE REASONING PATHWAY is designed for students pursuing a field of study in which general education math is a requirement. These fields include majors in:
  • Communications
  • Graphic Design
  • Paralegal
  • STEM-PREP PATHWAY is designed for students seeking a STEM or mathematics-intensive major in fields including:
  • Petroleum Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Chemistry
