Statway and Quantway: Mathematics Pathways to Student Success in Community Colleges

Please join us for a one hour discussion online with:

Uri Treisman (Introducing the problem via video)
Carnegie Senior Partner
Executive Director, Charles A. Dana Center at UT-Austin

Karon Klipple and Jane Muhich
Statway/Quantway Directors
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

Julie Phelps
Pathways Networking Liaison
American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges
Professor, Valencia Community College

Carnegie and its partners are addressing the low success rate of developmental mathematics students by providing alternatives to the current community college mathematical sequence and content. The Statistics Pathway (Statway) is designed to take developmental math students to and through transferable college statistics in one year. Quantway provides an alternate and accelerated pathway with an innovative quantitative literacy focus in which students use mathematics and numerical reasoning to make sense of the world around them.

During the broadcast, the presenters will:

  • Discuss how the Carnegie Foundation in partnership with the Charles A. Dana Center and 27 community colleges around the country are on the leading edge of a movement to disrupt the system that has been an impediment for our developmental mathematics students for decades.
  • Describe the new pathways for non-STEM students that focus on the quantitative literacy and statistical reasoning skills needed in today's society and for college success.
  • Outline Carnegie's approach to building a networked improvement community centered around increasing student success in developmental mathematics
