Student Learning Success

You have helped bring mathematical thinking and active problem solving to life. Superintendent,
Wiseburn Unified School District

There is a strong correlation between exposure to MLC and an increase in student math achievement:

  • In 2015-16, 44% of 6-8 graders at Richard Henry Dana Middle School with 1 year of exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard, while 29% of 6-8 grade students with no exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard.
  • In 2015-16, 58% of 11th graders at El Segundo High School with 1 year of exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard, while 39% of 11th grade students with no exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard.

Sue had an amazing year in math! She has never seen herself as a math student and she did so well this year. She did very well on the math placement test into Algebra and is going to continue, I am so pleased. Thank you for MLC. 7th grade El Segundo Middle School parent

This correlation becomes stronger the more years a student is exposed to MLC:

  • 44% of 6-8 gradersat Richard Henry Dana Middle School with 3 years of exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard, while 22% of 6-8 grade students with no exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard.
  • 72% of 11th graders at El Segundo High School with 3 year of exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard, while 13% of 11th grade students with no exposure to MLC met/exceeded the math state standard.

Students are more engaged in problem-solving and mathematical thinking. Our mathematics classes have become more rigorous across the board, and students are meeting the challenge of that rigor. Director, Secondary Teaching & Learning,

Student Equity & Access

Equity

After MLC implementation, the percentage of students in Culver City High School enrolled in college-ready courses as defined by UC/CSU’s A-G requirements increased. Specifically, the percentage of seniors enrolled in college-ready math courses increased from 71% in 2013-14 to 90% in 2015-16.


After MLC implementation, the percentage of underrepresented minority (URM) students in Culver City High School enrolled in college-ready courses as defined by UC/CSU’s A-G requirements increased. Specifically, the percentage of African-American seniors enrolled in college-ready courses increased from 35% in 2013-14 to 62% in 2015-16.


After MLC implementation, the percentage of underrepresented minority (URM) students in Culver City High School who sat for the AP Calculus Exam increased. Specifically, URM students who sat for the AP Calculus Exam increased from 35% in 2013-14 to 52% in 2015-16 with no drop in achievement.

You taught me to fail hard and fail fast because that is how a person grows…thank you for teaching me how to think. Before your class I got away with just recalling facts. But now that you have showed me how to ask questions… I am able to think on my feet. Your passion for math has been passed down to me. 12th grade El Segundo High School student


Differentiated Math Teaching

Data indicate that improvement in math instruction relates to student math achievement. 59% of students taught by teachers who improved in math instruction met or exceeded the math state standard compared to only 28% students taught by teachers who did not improve in instruction.

There has been transformation in participating teachers’ teaching practices and their depth of mathematical practice. Teachers’ personal reflection and depth of conversation has moved to a meta-cognitive level. Superintendent,
