The Transition to College Mathematics (TCM) course materials were developed to help high school seniors who have not met a college readiness measure achieve college readiness by the end of their senior year. The materials, supporting a full year of instruction, address concepts and skills needed to prepare students for success in college quantitative reasoning, statistics, or college algebra courses.
During this 2-day session, you will learn how to leverage the course’s instructional model to develop students’ abilities in the three dimensions of college-readiness: academic knowledge and skills, noncognitive skills, and college cultural capital. You will experience selected student activities from the perspectives of both a learner and a teacher. You will network with participants from other high schools and collaborate on how to facilitate and assess student learning using the course materials.
You will receive printed copies of the TCM teacher materials. You will also receive 10 TCM student books. Included with each student book is access to the online homework and support system that is an integral part of the course.
