"Dismantling Barriers--Opening Math Pathways that Empower Our Students
Do your students struggle to complete Math courses? Do they serve as a barrier to completion at your institution? If so, then plan to join our October TLFSS webinar with Frank Savina of the UT Dana Center. His talk will focus on surfacing some of the unintended barriers our students face as they enter their math journey in higher education, and describe statewide initiatives that empower Latinx students to succeed in mathematics.
About This Month's Speakers:
Frank Savina has a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Bachelor of Science, both in Mathematics from the University of Texas at El Paso. He leads the design, development, and implementation of the pathway to Calculus for the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (formerly the New Mathways Project), an initiative to modernize entry-level college mathematics programs through working with states, universities, and colleges. He presents findings at national and regional conferences of professional mathematics organizations to inform the mathematics community about best practices in teaching gateway mathematics students. Frank has 20 years of teaching experience at the university and high school levels. In addition to serving for five years as a mathematics professor at El Paso Community College, he was an adjunct math faculty member and director of the Educational Talent Search Program at the University of Texas at El Paso. Most notably, Frank was the first Mathematics Department chair for the first early college in El Paso, where he was selected as Teacher of the Year. Mission Early College High School, a collaboration between Socorro Independent School District, El Paso Community College, and the University of Texas at El Paso, went on to become a national Blue Ribbon School during his tenure.
