Directory of Mathematics-based Intervention Projects, 1997. Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement.
Mathematical Association of America, Washington, D.C.
This directory is a reference for students and faculty to learn about extracurricular mathematics-based intervention projects. The individual projects are directed for the most part by collegiate mathematicians and held on their campuses. The "Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement" (SUMMA) Consortium of the Mathematical Association of America was organized in 1992 to disseminate information about these projects and provide a variety of services to the Project Directors. Support for these 132 programs comes from foundations, industry, universities, agencies, organizations, and individuals. Projects are conducted in 42 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Canada. The majority of projects are held in the summer, but they have academic year activities including meetings on Saturdays, electronic networking and newsletters. The two sections of the directory organize the programs by those sponsored by colleges and universities, and those conducted by organizations. For each program information is given on the type of project, recruitment area, total students/grades, total staff, application deadline, project dates, cost to student, and stipend and scholarship availability.
