Higher education gets a reboot when it comes to math

07/09/2017

The first Mastery Math Lab, opened in 2012 with its high-tech, high-touch approach to improving student performance (at the time a mere 30% passing rate for college algebra), has been such a success that a second lab is now open, and today that pass rate hovers in the 70% range.

About Us

The STEM Transformation Institute (STEM-TI) is a multidisciplinary collaboration across the Colleges of Arts, Sciences & Education, and Engineering & Computing, for the research and development of effective Discipline Based Education Research (DBER) practices that lead to substantial increases in the number of well-prepared STEM professionals, including teachers, graduating from FIU.

The STEM Institute capitalizes on the unique skills our diverse student population brings to their learning and ultimately the workforce. The Institute is FIU’s response to national calls for 100,000 new STEM teachers and an additional 1,000,000 STEM professionals over the next 10 years; hence, our vision that the Institute serve as a living laboratory that disseminates practices, policies, and STEM professionals across the nation.

Undertaking this challenge requires partnering with local K-12 schools, colleges, businesses and industry, foundations, and national education leaders in order to create an educational landscape that supports all students coming through multiple pathways, and leading to a productive workforce.
