As usual, it's been a while since I've posted. The position I have now directing the statewide rollout of transitional math in Illinois keeps me hopping. If you'd like to learn more about this approach to college readiness and placement that's being used around the country, not just in Illinois, please join me for an AMATYC webinar I'll be doing next week. The information is below. I hope to see you there!
Transitional Math: The Next Frontier in Developmental Math Pathways
Speaker: Kathleen Almy
Sponsoring Network: Mathematics for Liberal Arts
Date: Wednesday, August 15th
Time: 12:00 pm EDT / 11:00 am CDT / 10:00 am MDT / 9:00 am PDT
Description: Transitional math courses, which are high school courses that provide seniors the preparation and placement for college level math, are taking off around the country. Illinois is scaling them using the approach and content of pathways courses like Math Literacy. Transitional math courses complement corequisite remediation and developmental math pathways to form a successful approach to developmental education. Attendees will learn about the course content and approach as well as the implementation model being used in Illinois, a local control state with significant numbers of community colleges and high schools.
