The goal of this Statement on Competencies in Mathematics Expected of Entering College Students is to provide a clear and coherent message about the mathematics that students need to know and to be able to do to be successful in college. While this is written especially for the secondary mathematics teachers, it should be useful for anyone who is concerned about the preparation of California's students for college.
Articulation and Transfer
A document sponsored by California Education Round Table
This paper explores the background of the Transfer Center Pilot Program, identifies some fiscal issues, and suggests ways for local academic senates to provide leadership related to their primary responsibility for the function of transfer. By providing a brief history, this document equips local faulty with ideas for increasing the overall institutional commitment to the mission of transfer by embedding transfer in institution-wide activities, programs and services.

At the November 1994 meeting, the California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees' Committee on Educational Policies discussed the history, cost, and issues surrounding precollegiate instruction in the California State University (CSU). In January 1995, the Workgroup on the Under Prepared Student presented a report on precollegiate instruction in the CSU. The report concluded with ten recommendations aimed at improving the effectiveness of, and reducing the need for, remedial/developmental education on the CSU campuses.
This paper addresses articulation with high schools. It considers the philosophical basis for such articulation, discusses current programs, recommends activities which academic senates can undertake in concert with college administration, considers incentives which institutions can offer their faculty to encourage participation, and discusses activities in which individual faculty may engage. Finally, this paper briefly cites some exemplary programs.
