Mathematics

Preparing students for college, careers, and life through a positive math mindset

Achievement in math is one of the top predictors of college success or failure. Using the power of inquiry-based math instruction — the ability to integrate knowledge, skills, and concepts to solve real-world problems — teachers are able to transform their classrooms and provide students with new ways to discover, understand, and apply math.

The Challenge

  • 92% of math students at Napa Valley College do not meet its math standards and must take remedial math courses.
  • Only 34% of students in Napa County are at or above grade level in mathematics.
  • On average, there is an annual 3% increase in the number of students who are at or above grade level in math.
