Increasing minority success in the mathematics classroom : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
As the struggle for equality continues in politics, business, and social interaction, it has become apparent that the struggle exists in education as well. This project entails trying to find methods to increase minority success in the mathematics classroom.This project presents three avenues through which success will be increased. These include increasing positive role models in the mathematics classroom, the introduction and/or expansion of a multicultural curriculum, and the reeducation of professionals in the field. In addition, this project includes a guide for schools that will allow assessment of their curriculums as well as providing resources for the implementation of new programs.
