Math Summit 2023

The 2023 Central Texas Math Summit will feature a deeper dive into data points shared on our Middle School and High School Math Pathways chapters.

Explore your district using the left hand menu or explore data for the region to better understand:
  • Pipelines from middle school math to postsecondary outcomes
  • Annual high school math course enrollment
  • First-year postsecondary math completion for CTX students who enroll in public CTX institutions

Completing Algebra I Before High School Matters for Postsecondary Success, BUT Acceleration in High School Can Also Support Success

The two charts below show postsecondary outcomes for students based on their first and last math attained in high school. Across our region, students who can start high school with the pre-requisite course of Algebra I in-hand, and who complete college-aligned math their senior year have the best chance at postsecondary completion six-years after graduation.

But, those students who accelerate in high school and complete college-aligned math in their senior year also have better outcomes than those who take on-level or no math their senior year.

When systems align math pathways across middle and high school with the goal of increasing supports and access to Algebra I before high school and college-aligned math senior year, students have the best chance of success.
