New York State is committed to dramatically increasing the completion rates and success of its students by bringing evidence-based practices to scale.
As part of this goal, the State University of New York (SUNY) is scaling the Carnegie Math Pathways (CMP), a research-based approach to mathematics. The Quantway/Statway models, of which many SUNY colleges have adopted, use engaging, relevant concepts that students can use in their everyday lives, has been shown to accelerate students’ progress through developmental mathematics. As a lead system in this work, SUNY is working in partnership with the Carnegie Math Pathways (CMP) with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to offer Quantway/Statway to all SUNY campuses choosing to pursue these courses. SUNY and CMP are providing support at the state level to help launch and teach the Pathways, as well as provide professional development for faculty, administrators and advisors, along with a nationwide networked improvement community. Recently, CMP and SUNY developed a 5 year report describing the partnership, click here for a PDF copy.
More than 28 two- and four-year SUNY institutions are participating in developing Math Pathways and co-req courses and have launched a system-wide network of more than 400 faculty, administrators, advisors and tutors all engaged in this work.
This important faculty-driven initiative is aimed at improving students’ college readiness and graduation rates statewide. Participating faculty, administrators, and advisors impact students far beyond a single course or semester. Their work informs the efforts of other university systems, strengthens remedial instruction, and ensures greater academic success for thousands of students.
