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.


SUMMIT-P is a NSF funded program for synergistic undergraduate mathematics education. A consortium of eleven institutions are collaborating to revise and improve the curriculum for lower division undergraduate mathematics courses.
