A Synthesis of Selected Research at NIE in Mathematics Education Related to Minorities.
Ortiz-Franco, Luis
Nineteen projects related to mathematics education issues among minorities, funded by the Learning and Development Unit at the National Institute of Education (NIE), are summarized. It is felt that minorities and mathematics education issues have been largely neglected in recent investigations. This neglect is seen to have the potential to render tenuous the generalizability of empirical findings which have been observed among the non-minority student population. The studies abstracted here cover seven ethnic groups, with both sexes included. Collectively, they include populations in all levels of schooling. More specifically, two investigations include pre-elementary school populations, six involve grades K-6, six focus on grades 7-9, four on grades 10-12, seven include college populations, and five involve adult professionals. Further, three studies do not specify what ethnic groups are included. Of the remaining, eight involve whites, seven pertain to blacks, and four include Puerto Ricans. Each of the groups American Indians, Chinese, and Chicanos is included in two studies, and one report includes Alaskan Natives. One study covers females only, the remaining include both sexes. (MP)
