Directory of Mathematics-Based Intervention Projects. Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement (SUMMA).
Mathematical Association of America, Washington, DC.
The magnitude of the underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans in mathematics-dependent fields is well known. This directory, organized by the Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement (SUMMA) Consortium, is a reference for students, faculty, and others to learn about extra-curricular mathematics-based intervention projects. Sixty-seven projects, supported by foundations, industry, universities, agencies, organizations, and individuals, are listed in two sections: pre-college projects sponsored by colleges and universities, and pre-college projects conducted by organizations. Each entry on the list provides the following information: sponsor; project type; recruitment area; total number and grade level of students; total staff; project dates; cost and financial assistance information; and a description of the program. The SUMMA Program focuses on seven areas of activity: (1) developing the consortium; (2) establishing mathematics-based intervention projects; (3) attracting minorities into teaching at all levels; (4) establishing mainstreaming projects for minority students on majority campuses; (5) mentoring minority students in mathematics; (6) creating an archival record of minority PhDs in mathematics and mathematics education; and (7) developing an organization for mathematics departments at minority institutions.
