Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) 2020 Survey.
With generous funding from the National Science Foundation and on behalf of the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences (CBMS), the American Mathematical Society is conducting the 2020 CBMS Survey of Undergraduate Mathematics Programs in the US.
A Resource for Guiding and Building Undergraduate Math/Stats Infrastructure
Provide a comprehensive, statistically-based picture of the characteristics of undergraduate mathematical and statistical science programs throughout the United States.
- 2019: prepare survey instrument
- Fall 2020: survey questionnaires sent to stratified random samples of program leaders
- 2021—22: analyze data, share preliminary findings, and prepare reports
- Comprehensive written report on the findings
- Online searchable database
- Briefs focused on specific findings and areas of interest
Who is the target audience?
- Departmental, programmatic, institutional, and system leaders
- Mathematical education researchers
- Policy makers
- Wider community of undergraduate educators
Tracing the Evolution of Undergraduate Mathematics Education
Every five years since 1970, the CBMS sampling survey has collected multifaceted data from mathematical and statistical sciences departments in:
- All types of universities and colleges with four-year undergraduate programs
- All types of community colleges with predominantly two-year programs. The CBMS Survey is unique in providing a comprehensive view of mathematics and statistics programs in two-year colleges.
The reports on these studies outline the evolution of the system of undergraduate mathematics and statistics programs over a 45-year period. They focus on such attributes as: Enrollments; Curriculum; Bachelor's degrees awarded; Course availability; Faculty demographics; Special one-time topics
