American Indian Women and Mathematics: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Resources.
Christensen, Rosemary; And Others
An annotated bibliography, compiled as part of a 1-year project to look at factors affecting the participation and performance of Minnesota Indian girls in mathematics, contains 64 entries, dating between 1967 and 1982. Because Indian Students in general leave the public schools underprepared for jobs, and because the plight of Indian women is even worse than that of Indian men, the bibliography is intended for use by those who wish to think critically about the present situation in their schools and wish to plan and implement programs to address special needs in mathematics education for Indians, particularly Indian women. Resources listed include 32 journal articles, 13 conference papers, and 1 masters's thesis; ERIC document numbers are provided for 12 entries. Subjects covered include minority group achievement/performance in mathematics; sex-role orientation and stereotyping; math anxiety/avoidance; academic achievement (including mathematics) of Native Americans; sex differences in mathematical abilities/learning; mathematics education research; and cultural/sexual identity of American Indian women.
