|Description||"The Architecture of Intensification: Rethinking Remediation in K-12 and Postsecondary Mathematics Education" - Mathematics is in the spotlight as state and federal policymakers deepen their focus on college readiness and completion in K-12 and postsecondary education. It is a harsh spotlight. The three highest failure rate courses in college are in mathematics and far fewer than half of America's high school seniors are college-ready in math according to a multitude of standard measures.|
In response, Texas' community colleges and their four-year transfer partners are engaged in the redesign of developmental mathematics offerings at scale. Responding to Texas House Bill 5, these colleges are also collaborating with their local K-12 partners in constructing new offerings that strengthen students' preparation for college mathematics.
What are the core research ideas and professional practice judgments underlying the most promising work now underway? What is the evidence for their effectiveness? What are the unanswered questions about these strategies' limitations? Ruminations on these questions will be at the heart of this engaging talk with Uri Treisman.
