College Ready: 2017 Mathematics Symposium

This symposium is intended to give high school and college mathematics educators and administrators a chance to discuss concerns, common practices, and shared goals. Panel discussions will include high school teacher representatives, professors who use or teach math, and those who support students in the transition from high school to college. 

The primary symposium topics will be…

  • What mathematical topics and practices will serve students best as they transition from high school to college?
  • How should students be engaging with these topics and practices at the high school level? What will the expectations be at the college level? How do expectations vary across different higher ed institutions?
  • What mathematical pathways exist for students entering college?
  • How do we ensure equity and access in mathematics to traditionally underserved populations?
  • How can we engage students in problem solving and mathematical communication while meeting standards and requirements?

Panel discussions will alternate with small group discussions and breakout sessions around the symposium topics. This symposium is targeted for anyone (K-16) who is interested in discussing what it means to prepare children mathematically for college.

Registration is $65 and includes lunch.
Participants who are part of the Writing Across the Curriculum ​symposia receive a $10 discount.
