WestEd’s Carnegie Math Pathways will present the session, High School Transition Courses: High School-College Partnerships Creating Pathways for Student Success, at the NCTM 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting. The conference is offered over two weeks, April 21-24 and April 28-May 1.
The annual meeting is an opportunity for math educators to share expert resources and best practices designed to improve math teaching and learning.
Carnegie Math Pathways’ session will be held on April 30, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).
In this session, two high school-college partnerships will share the design of and lessons learned from the implementation of high school transition courses, courses designed in collaboration with Carnegie Math Pathways to provide seniors at risk of requiring remediation in college with a robust conceptual understanding of foundational mathematics and academic dispositions and skills that will help them succeed in college.
Participants will learn about:
- Instructional design of high school transition courses
- Implementation models in different contexts
- How high school-college partnerships are created and maintained, including issues regarding intersegmental coordination
- Effectiveness of courses in improving readiness for college mathematics
- Overview of high school-college transition courses
