1 The NMP: An Introduction an initiative of the Charles A. Dana Center and the Texas Association of Community Colleges Amy Getz, Manager of Community College Services

2 Who?  Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin  Over 20 years of state and national leadership in mathematics education  Led development of original Statway and Quantway curricula in partnership with the Carnegie Foundation  Staff comprises math educators, policy experts, student success experts  Texas Association of Community Colleges  Represents all 50 community college systems in Texas  Represents the interests of community colleges in state policymaking and budgeting 2

3 What? A systemic approach to improving student success and completion by reforming developmental and gateway mathematics based on four fundamental principles: 1.Multiple pathways with relevant and challenging mathematics content aligned to specific fields of study 2.Acceleration that allows students to complete a college- level math course more quickly than in the traditional developmental math sequence. 3.Intentional use of strategies to help students develop skills as learners 4.Curriculum design and pedagogy based on proven practice 3

4 Dana Center’s Role: State Level Broadly support reform based on the four principles:  Work with TACC, state agencies, and two- and four-year institutions to address policy obstacles  Leverage resources and build support through collaboration with partners:  Other reform initiatives  Professional organizations 4

5 Dana Center’s Role: Institutional Level Build tools and services that help colleges implement systemic reform  Detailed implementation guide  Data templates  Tools and strategies to help train advisors and plan for student recruitment  Services that support planning 5

6 Dana Center’s Role: Faculty & Classroom Level Develop materials and services to support on-the-ground implementation  Course materials  Professional learning opportunities – general and specific to the Dana Center’s course materials  Online modules, workshops, institutes, and written support materials The development process is based on input from and engagement with community college faculty and staff. 6

7 Working with Colleges Codevelopment partners:  Participate in original development of materials and services  Are the first to implement and test materials  Mentor other colleges : Implementing the statistics pathway and helping develop the quantitative reasoning pathway 7

8 Working with Colleges Active Learning Sites:  Implement one to two years later  Prepare for implementation through a mentoring relationship with codevelopment partners : Most active learning sites will work with mentor colleges to prepare to implement in Fall

9 Working with Colleges Capacity Building Sites:  Implement three to four years later  Focused on informing faculty and building buy-in : disseminate information provided by the Dana Center, hold at least one event focused on the NMP 9

10 Resources: Institutional Support Implementation Guide  Outlines the process, how to engage stakeholders, key issues to consider  Provides planning tools, templates and examples Mathematics Pathway Transfer Resource  Lists mathematics requirements for programs of study at 20 four-year colleges in Texas. Policy FAQ  Provides vetted information in response to queries about articulation, applicability, TSI, etc. 10

11 Resources: Faculty Training Webinars specific to the NMP curricular materials  About the NMP: Mathematics Focus  About the NMP: Student-Success Focus Online modules (not specific to NMP curricular materials)  Introduction to Strategies for Supporting Active Learning in Mathematics  Introduction to Mindset Factors in Student Success CASP Pre-Conference Institute  New Mathways Project Institute for Newcomers  Date: TBD (prior to opening of Oct 1-4 conference) 11

12 Accessing Resources Information about accessing and using NMP resources will be sent to college NMP contacts. The resources listed above will become available in September. We will be starting a “Texas Only” monthly update in October. Announcements about new resources and events will be posted in this forum. 12

13 The NMP Courses 13

14 Delivery and Costs of Curricular Materials  Mathematics course materials will be developed in an online platform.  Similar to an e-textbook except that lesson activities will be supported through the platform  Online homework and gradebook system  Students pay a fee for access to the materials in lieu of a textbook.  Fees are still TBD, but we anticipate they will be lower than the price of standard textbooks 14

15 Faculty Involvement -- Frameworks  Curriculum Design Teams with Texas and national faculty leaders:  Established design principles  Wrote initial learning outcomes and course outline  Development teams with faculty from 19 colleges:  Outlined each of the 4 strands  Reviewed lessons  Faculty teaching in the fall will provide in depth information for revision after field-testing 15

16 Faculty Involvement -- Math  Curriculum Design Teams with Texas and national faculty leaders:  Established design principles  Wrote initial learning outcomes  Faculty from codevelopment partners:  Advised on materials organization and structure  Reviewed lessons  Will provide in depth information for revision after field- testing 16

17 Timeline for Development and Implementation *A PDF version of the Frameworks course will be published for open use. 17 CoursesFirst Implementation Available to all Colleges Frameworks for Mathematics and Collegiate Learning* Spring 2013Fall 2013 Foundations of Mathematical ReasoningFall 2013Fall 2014 Statistical ReasoningSpring 2014Spring 2015 Quantitative ReasoningSpring 2015Spring 2016 STEM-Prep and bridge courseSpring 2016Spring 2017
