Strengthening Implementation of Math Pathways in Maine - Current

In Maine, and across the country, students are placed in remedial math courses more than other content areas. In some cases, this is an unnecessary barrier to college completion, as not all careers require the same math skills for success. Different careers require different types of math skills, yet all students have been required to complete the same mathematics coursework, regardless of its relevance to future career goals. This can create unnecessary barriers to college completion and career success. 

R1CC is working with the Maine Department of Education, the Maine Community College System, and other interest holders to develop a vision for new K-16 math pathways that set students up for success throughout their academic careers and beyond.
