How can K-12, community college, and higher education educators work together to develop new pathways for student success in math?

What’s keeping a large segment of students from transferring from community college to a four-year university?

Join a dedicated group of educators from San Diego regional high schools, 10 community colleges, San Diego Math Network and UC San Diego at a one-day symposium to discuss the primary roadblock to college success: Intermediate Algebra/Integrated Math III.

Intermediate Algebra (Algebra II/Integrated III) is the number one stumbling block for student success and is also the “gatekeeper” to college transfer-level math courses.

This summer, plan to attend and collaborate with a broad range of K-20 colleagues from across the region to improve student math achievement in Intermediate Algebra. The symposium agenda includes:

  • Review of student data from high school, community college and four year universities.
  • Honest conversations about what techniques/approaches work for Intermediate Algebra.
  • Development of outcome strategies for working together to develop success pathways for students to succeed.
  • Participation in 20 breakout sessions where high school, community college and four-year university math instructors and educational leaders present successful models each level is using for Intermediate Algebra.
  • Brainstorming about next steps the region can take to help students succeed in Intermediate Algebra.
  • A limited number of mini “igniter funds” will be available for cross-institutional teams to apply for at the event itself to continue conversations post the Zeroing-in Event. Only participants in attendance may apply for the funds, although they may include others not in attendance on their igniter team.

Breakfast and lunch are included.
