Early Dana Center Work with Arkansas
In late-2015, Arkansas was selected as one of six states to participate in the Mathematics Pathways to Completion (MPC) project. Through this project, Arkansas sought to move from a broad vision for mathematics pathways to institutional implementation of the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (DCMP) model over three years. In Fall 2017, 20 two-year institutions and 11 four-year institutions committed to implement mathematics pathways in Fall 2018. See Summary of Institutional Commitments for Arkansas for more information about who committed and institutional expectations to implement mathematics pathways.
In Spring 2018, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education and the Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) Mathematics Review Committee reached a major milestone with the publication of the Quantitative Literacy/Mathematical Reasoning (ACTS Course MATH1113) recommendations. These recommendations are guiding Arkansas institutions as they determine which degrees and programs should accept Quantitative Literacy/Mathematical Reasoning as the general education mathematics requirement. See A Statewide Effort in Arkansas to Align Mathematics Pathways to Non-STEM Programs of Study for more information.
