Staying the Course: Investigating Prerequisites to College Calculus

Disparate outcomes in college calculus courses are often attributed to varied levels of preparation among students pursuing STEM majors. But students who start their college math journeys in calculus prerequisites—even college-level trigonometry and precalculus—face longer routes to calculus and lower odds of success. Requirements for STEM students to enroll in calculus vary widely by campus. In this session, practitioners discussed recent research on calculus prerequisites and the challenges of designing effective and equitable approaches.
