Equitable K-14 pathways provide each and every student access and support that mathematically prepares them for their future. Recent reports call for changes in the mathematics students need to be college, career and citizenry ready, with greater emphasis on statistics and modeling. In this webinar, we examine course pathway design and implementation, and related policies and practices for K-12 and the first two years of college that effectively support each and every student to be mathematically prepared for their future, along with common pitfalls to avoid. We draw on recently released research and recommendations, including those from the current Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) High School to College Pathways Project and the recently released 2018 National Survey on Science and Mathematics Education (NSSME+) report.
