TLC3 Partners with AMATYC to celebrate Calculus Allies: Supporting the transition of diverse learners to calculus in community colleges

by Helen Burn / Mar 5, 2018

Calculus Allies is an exciting new partnership between TLC3 and the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) that will broaden the impact of the TLC3.  Calculus Allies are colleges that promote the transition of diverse learners to calculus through practices identified in the TLC3 national survey that align with the newly released AMATYC IMPACT standards.  Selected colleges will be highlighted during a session at the AMATYC annual conference in Orlando, Florida, November 15-18, 2018, and in the MathAMATYC Educator during the 2018-19 academic year.

Calculus Allies are:

1.      Colleges that demonstrate “equity-mindedness” in mathematics curriculum, instruction, and institutional practices indicated through quantitative data collected in the TLC3 grant

2.      Colleges that demonstrate commitment and service to their profession through participation in AMATYC

3.      Colleges that demonstrate commitment to the principles and practices in AMATYC IMPACT
