The connection between high school and college is a vital part of a student's transition. The alignment of learning objectives and standards supports academic momentum and provides efficient use of resources.

The reasons lie in system and institutional policies and practices that have a direct impact on student success. This Points of Interest suggests that students with advanced math knowledge continue to be enrolled in into developmental math courses in college.
