High School to College Transitions and Expectations

Presenters: Amy Bonham, Holly Wallace, Julie Oddo, Eric Rausch; Monroe High Schools

Summary: This presentation will be about how our high school is working to align content and expectations to our local community colleges. We will discuss how we made this alignment, the successes, and challenges we are still trying to overcome. We will share other avenues we are willing to try to help our students be ready for college mathematics. During this presentation we will highlight the High School Course Expectations (HSCE) as required by the state of Michigan. Sample assessments and problem sets will be shown, in hope to receive feedback on college alignment. We would like to end the presentation with a group discussion on aligning first-year college math courses to the HSCE.
