Title:
The Right Math at the Right Time Task Force

Abstract:
The Right Math at the Right Time Task Force is a crossinstitutional, statewide group
of Michigan educators who are working to improve students' success in gateway mathematics
courses by aligning these courses across institutions, supporting program faculty in
choosing the right math pathway for their students, and promoting research based
solutions for mathematically underprepared students. This work is supported by the
Michigan Center for Student Success through a Dana Center grant and draws from successful
approaches sponsored by the Dana Center in other states. Please, come find out more
about the work of the group and its proposal for improving mathematics higher education
in Michigan.

Mathematics Pathways

Abstract:
This session will address:
 Pathways designed to accelerate students' progress from developmental mathematics to a collegelevel course as replacements for the traditional Prealgebra/Beginning Algebra/Intermediate Algebra route.
 Courses that reflect the mathematics pathways described in the Michigan Transfer Agreement.
 Pathways leading to alternatives to College Algebra that are aligned to targeted programs of study.
