This webinar series highlights strategies for strengthening transitions to college and ensuring that math requirements aren’t arbitrary barriers to progress.The Quantitative Leap! webinar series hosted by The Opportunity Institute and LearningWorks explores how mathematics policies can support the transition from high school to college. Mathematics sequences in high school and college are a key hurdle for students seeking to attend and complete a postsecondary degree or credential. The four-part series highlights three strategies for strengthening the transition from high school to college in ways that ensure that math requirements don't constitute arbitrary barriers to academic progress:

  • Quantitative reasoning expectations: Ensure that math requirements for college readiness and graduation are evidence-based, well-aligned with students' programs of study, and reasonably consistent across educational segments (Webinar 1)
  • Evidence-based placement practices: Rely on evidence to ensure the validity and efficacy of the placement measures used to determine students' readiness for college-level quantitative reasoning courses (Webinar 2)
  • Opportunities to prepare: Provide all high school students opportunities to prepare for college-level work and avoid the need for remedial courses in college, especially by leveraging the senior-year of high school (Webinars 3 and 4)
