College students are still struggling with basic math. Professors blame the pandemic

  • Many college students are arriving with significant gaps in their math skills, leading to struggles in higher-level math courses and an increase in failing grades. Colleges attribute these setbacks to the disruptions caused by the pandemic, which resulted in decreased math learning and slower recovery.
  • The problem of math learning setbacks is particularly pronounced among Black, Latino, low-income, and vulnerable students, exacerbating existing educational inequalities. These students are more likely to suffer long-term consequences due to limited access and support.
  • Colleges are implementing various strategies to address the issue, such as identifying gaps earlier through placement tests, offering corequisite classes to strengthen basic math skills alongside higher-level courses, expanding peer tutoring programs, and adopting active learning approaches. However, the effectiveness of these efforts varies across institutions.
