WPI to host Upper-Division Pathways: New England Regional Meeting June 11 & 12

DEPARTMENT(S): 
June 6, 2018

Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics (TPSE Math), sponsored by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the National Science Foundation, aims to effect constructive change in mathematics education at U.S. community colleges, 4-year colleges and research universities.

The Upper-Division Pathways: New England Regional Meeting of TPSE Math will be held at Worcester Polytechnic Institute on June 11-12, 2018. This workshop will focus on developing math pathways for undergraduate students at the upper-division level that respond to regional workforce needs. Participants will also consider pathways for math majors intending to pursue graduate studies in mathematics, and for majors in other departments who need upper-division math courses as part of their programs of study. In interactive sessions, all participants – faculty members, recent graduates, industry employers – will share their perspectives and experiences and work in groups to develop sample pathways. Faculty members will leave armed with the tools needed to explore pathway design in their home institutions.

This event has been made possible by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York
and the generosity of our host, Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
