Finally! A Curriculum that WORKS for NON-STEM Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Here’s the worst-kept secret ever:  the traditional math curriculum was not designed with non-STEM students in mind.  In essence, we’ve treated every course as preparation for the next course, with little thought to the fact that most students will stop somewhere in the middle.  Fortunately, momentum is growing nationally, and of course in North Carolina, for an alternative pathway that focuses on what’s best for non-STEM students.   

 I’ll propose two new courses (along with materials, of course!) that will not only fulfill math requirements for non-STEM students more quickly, but will also be a much richer and more useful experience for those students.
