Making Math Count: Building Accelerated Math Pathways and Early Findings on Their Impact on Students’ Success

In this session, representatives from The Charles A. Dana Center, MDRC, and the California Acceleration Project (CAP) discussed successes and challenges of implementing classroom, institutional, and state policy reforms to support the development of multiple math pathways. The Dana Center began by introducing the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) and its work to support college faculty, institutions, and states in implementing these pathways at scale. Additionally, a CAP practitioner shared on-the-ground experiences with implementing these pathways. Finally, MDRC shared beginning implementation and impact findings from a random assignment study of these pathways at four Texas colleges, including faculty and student perspectives as well as lessons for successfully implementing the pathways at scale within an institution.
