“The status quo is unacceptable.”  This is the running theme of “A Common Vision for Undergraduate Mathematical Sciences Programs in 2025.”  A joint effort of five national mathematical organizations, this document is focused on modernizing undergraduate programs in the mathematical sciences.   After a brief history of the National Math Summit and overview of the Common Vision project, this webinar will focus on two of the five recommendations of the Common Vision:  scaling up of the use of evidence-based pedagogical methods and finding ways to remove barriers facing students at critical transition points (e.g., placement, transfer).  We will explore the responsibilities of institutions, departments, faculty, and students that allow the mathematics practitioners to collectively change the 'status quo' unacceptable practices.
