Math Pathways Initiative Is in Full Swing

Nov 16, 2017

Colleges around the state have started to offer new math courses in response to the Missouri Department of Higher Education’s Math Pathways initiative.

The initiative is designed to give students math classes that are more appropriately aligned with their programs of study. Some colleges no longer require college algebra for students who don’t need higher level math classes. Rusty Monhollon, who oversees the Math Pathways initiative, said these alternative courses should not only set them up for academic success, but also for career success.
