Statway is designed to teach mathematics skills that are essential for a growing number of occupations and professions, and are those needed for making decisions under conditions of uncertainty, an inescapable condition of modern life. This is the math that will help students understand the world around them and it is the math they can use right now.

Our Results

Statway triples student success in half the time. Roughly fifty percent of developmental math students entering Statway have earned college math credit in a year or less.  Among developmental math students in these same schools, only 16% of have earned college math credit in two years.

Instructional System

Statway is designed as a one academic year course that allows students to simultaneously complete their developmental mathematics requirements and receive college mathematics credit in statistics. The course concentrates on statistical content with requisite algebraic concepts taught and applied in the context of statistics. View curriculum materials and sample instructional materials. 

More than just a new curriculum, Statway courses include an intensive student engagement component within the classroom environment focused on increasing student motivation and tenacity. These supports include the information and the skills needed for academic success as well as tools that help students to navigate college. In addition to lessons and student supports, the Pathway includes MyStatway®, online out-of-class activities and homework. This platform takes the place of a textbook, which is not required.

The Members

Currently, there 28 institutions teaching Statway in eight states. Hear what our students are saying about the impact of the Pathways on their lives.
