Tri-C Pilots Innovative Math Curriculum

 

 

Tri-C is one of eight community colleges nationally participating in

 QuantwayTM, in partnership with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, which pilots techniques to improve student success in developmental mathematics and collects and uses evidence of factors that contribute to their success.
 

Quantway allows students who are not in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs to select an accelerated pathway through developmental mathematics that applies mathematics and numerical reasoning skills to real-world issues.
