LLCC hosting Transitional Math Summit on campus today

LLCC Math and Sciences is hosting a Transitional Math Summit today in the Trutter Center from 1-4  p.m. More than 50 teachers, principals and advisors from 16 high schools in the LLCC district will attend. Kathleen Almy, Illinois Director for Transitional Math, will be conducting the summit.  According to Bill Bade, dean of math and sciences, a new state mandate requires high schools and community colleges to work together to create transitional math classes. High school seniors would complete the classes (if needed), and successful completion would ensure that for up to 18 months after completion, they could enroll in any state school college-level math class without having to take a placement exam or otherwise test into the transfer level class. These classes would be implemented in the next few years.
