This course is ideal for accelerating students as an alternative to the traditional developmental math sequence and preparing them for a college-level statistics, liberal arts math, or STEM-prep course.
MyMathLab for Foundations for Mathematical Reasoning is the first in a series of MyMathLab courses built to support the New Mathways Project developed by the Charles A. Dana Center. The New Mathways Project embodies the Dana Center’s vision for a systemic approach to improving student success and completion through implementation of processes, strategies, and structures built around three mathematics pathways and a supporting student success course. Foundations for Mathematical Reasoning is the common starting point for all three mathematics pathways and is designed to build the mathematical skills and understanding necessary for success in a quantitative literacy, statistics, or algebra course.
MyMathLab for Foundations for Mathematical Reasoning was developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas—Austin. The Dana Center brings together experienced faculty from two- and four-year institutions to author, review, field-test, and revise the New Mathways Project curricular materials.
The Dana Center develops and scales effective math and science innovations to support educators, administrators, and policy makers in creating seamless transitions throughout the K14 system for all students. Their work, based on research and two decades of experience, focuses on K—16 mathematics and science education with an emphasis on strategies for improving student engagement, motivation, persistence, and achievement. They develop innovative curricula, tools, protocols, and instructional supports and deliver powerful instructional and leadership development.
