jramirez23 02/11/19 1:11:55 AM 1 | 80/80 The gist is that in the United States, the highest level of math class that a student takes in high school is the strongest predictor of whether that student will earn a bachelor's degree (no matter the field of study). Specific data can be found in educational research articles. In one source published in 1999, about 50% of students whose highest math class was Algebra II went on to attain a bachelor's, but for students who reached up to precalc, this proportion jumps up to 76% and it goes up to 82% for students who got to calculus. Why do you think this link exists? I have heard some people say because math classes typically will demand a positive attitude as well as logical thinking. Others say that no matter the field, quantitative thinking is becoming more important/valued. I agree with this, but why does the link involve "highest level" of math and not science or maybe even a foreign language?For more info: https://www.renaissance.com/2018/03/22/blog-math-milestones-critical-role-math-achievement-student-success/ --- When life backs you up into a corner, come out swingin'! |

streamofthesky 02/11/19 1:49:28 AM 6 | Math is the most difficult of the four main subjects, so why is it surprising that those who can do well enough at it to tackle higher level classes have a much higher rate of getting a bachelor's degree? |

Beveren_Rabbit 02/11/19 2:19:52 AM 7 | There are people really good at computer stuff, but are not so good at math. --- *flops* |
