CADE 2017: Conference Schedule

Breakout Session 3, 2:00-3:00 p.m.

Restructuring the Math Pipeline for Success

Capitol Ballroom 1

Terrie Nichols, Cuyamaca College

Cuyamaca College no longer offers math at two or more levels below transfer. Instead, developmental students enroll in: 1) Intermediate Algebra with concurrent-enrollment support, 2) an accelerated pre-statistics course, or 3) a college-level math course with concurrent-enrollment support. The outcome? Pipeline success rates are significantly greater across all disproportionately-impacted groups.
