‘The Problematic Math of College Admissions’ Webinar

Using calculus as a measure of rigor or talent in college admissions ignores the fact that not all students have access to calculus and reinforces inequity—with an outsize effect on underserved students. It also overlooks the rapid expansion of 21st-century courses such as data science and statistics that better align with many students’ aspirations. Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics (TPSE Math) and Just Equations partnered to host this discussion exploring how math recommendations are influenced by admissions practices. Using research from Calculating the Odds: Counselor Views on Math Coursetaking and College Admissions, panelists discuss solutions and offer recommendations to open the door to greater diversity in STEM.
