Summer Institutes scheduled for July

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Quantway and Statway Summer Institute is scheduled for mid-July. Teams from 30 colleges in eight states will gather in Palo Alto, California, to further develop these two newly designed mathematics pathways. Carnegie’s aim in this project is to significantly increase the proportion of students, who, within one year of continuous community college enrollment, are mathematically prepared to succeed in further academic study. While there are other objectives, the primary Institute goal is for faculty to feel comfortable delivering lessons to developmental math students this fall for Statway, and for Quantway in spring 2012.
