Math Gets a Makeover<p>by Shannon Najmabadi<br><em>Chronicle of Higher Education</em>, April 16, 2017<br>Full text <a href="http://www.chronicle.com/article/math-gets-a-makeover/239789" target="_blank">here</a>. Excerpt reprinted with permission.</p>
<p>TPSE (often pronounced "Tipsy") works with other groups to bring awareness, resources, and legitimacy to math reform, and makes it easier for reform-minded faculty members to learn from one another. The organization is led by a prominent mathematician in the field, Phillip Griffiths, an emeritus professor of mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study. His involvement alone, many math reformers say, validates the effort.</p>Mon, 17 Apr 2017 14:32:00 -0400Tpse Math

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Awards Ithaka S+R Multi-year Grant to Develop, Test, and Scale new models for Entry-level Math Instruction<p><em>Project team includes TPSE Math.</em></p>
<p>Each year nearly half of U.S. high school graduates who begin college are forced to take remedial math before they can take college courses for credit. For most, this remediation requirement is unexpected and a substantial barrier to earning a college degree. Only 22% of students who face math remediation are able to finish college. For minority, low-income, and first generation students—who now comprise the majority of college students in the U.S.—math remediation may be even more detrimental to their degree attainment rates.</p>Mon, 27 Mar 2017 13:36:00 -0400Tpse Math

Rethinking Postsecondary Placement Policies and Processes<p>by Uri Treisman</p>
<p>My Dana Center colleague, <a href="http://www.utdanacenter.org/about-us/staff/jenna-cullinane/" target="_blank">Jenna Cullinane</a>, and Jobs For the Future’s <a href="http://www.jff.org/about-us/staff/lara-k-couturier" target="_blank">Lara Couturier</a> have released a powerful report, <em><a href="http://www.jff.org/publications/call-action-improve-math-placement-policies-and-processes" target="_blank">A Call to Action to Improve Math Placement Policies and Processes</a><a href="http://bit.ly/1G1krT5"></a></em>. Their call to action offers six recommendations for how states and their public colleges might revise math placement policies, processes, and supports to ensure that STEM-interested students realize their professional aspirations.</p>
<p>I warmly encourage you to take a look.</p>
