Math UpdatesMathematics, along with English, is a core content area that transcends disciplines.  Math is used in biology, chemistry, engineering, statistics, and many other subject areas.  It is also an area in which students tend to struggle.  Educators on all levels and in many disciplines have come together in the math transitions meetings to discuss how to better align lessons, learning expectations, and scores between the K-12 and post-secondary levels.  These events are coordinated by the Wyoming School-University Partnership, the University of Wyoming Department of Mathematics, and Wyoming community colleges.  Some events were funded by support from the Qwest Foundation.
