A Wake-Up Call: Mathematics as an Equalizer for Social Justice and Equity

Speakers: Drs. Helen Burn, Vilma M. Mesa, J. Luke Wood, Eboni Zamani-Gallaher

This session at the 2019 AERA Meeting will present findings for improving the success of underrepresented and underserved students of color in the developmental education to precalculus sequence in community colleges.

Findings from this study were derived from a National Science Foundation (NSF) project that involved a survey of math chairs, a survey of math faculty, and case studies at exemplar minority-serving institutions.
