Streamlining math pathways at Clark College
The majority of Washington’s high school graduates are required to take remedial math in college. This increases the time it takes students to move toward a degree, requires students to use valuable financial aid on course work for which they can earn no college-level credits, and dramatically reduces the chance that a student will earn a degree; fewer than half of the students who take remedial math go on to graduate from college.
In an effort to improve student success in math, Clark College introduced a streamlined pre-college sequence and college-level corequisite learning to help students fulfill their math requirements quicker and more effectively.
