Curriculum Renewal Across the First Two Years (CRAFTY)

CRAFTY is a subcommittee of the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) and is charged with monitoring ongoing developments with the intention of eventually making general recommendations concerning the first two years of collegiate mathematics.

CRAFTY leads national initiatives to renew mathematics course work and instruction offered for students in their first two years of college. In making decisions about timely renewal efforts concerning lower level courses and programs, CRAFTY considers CUPM recommendations including the CUPM Curriculum Guide and information obtained from representatives of employers and of partner disciplines. In undertaking its initiatives CRAFTY collaborates with CUPM and CRAFTY’s sister CUPM subcommittees as well as with other MAA committees and special interest groups.

Focus Articles: CRAFTY has published four articles in 2016 on general recommendations to renew mathematics course work and instruction in the first two years.

Publications: CRAFTY has been active in determining the mathematical needs of partner disciplines and on the College Algebra course. These activities have resulted in two publications.
