Johnson, Raymond
Mathematics and Education Reform Forum, v12 n3 Sum 2000
This report is comprised of a section of three talks in the special session on Mathematics and Education Reform at the January, 2000 Joint Mathematics Meeting in Washington, DC. This issue, which includes three articles based on the presentations and two additional articles, continues discussion on issues and successful approaches to improve the participation of underrepresented minorities in mathematics, especially at the graduate level and in college and university mathematics departments. Articles include: (1) "The Invisible Minorities in Mathematics" (William Yslas Velez); (2) "Graduate Education: Reconsidering Our Response" (Sylvia T. Bozeman and Rhonda J. Hughes); (3) "Increasing the Number of Minority Ph.D.s in Mathematics" (David Manderscheid); and (4) "Attracting Undergraduate Minorities to Mathematics" (Etta Z. Falconer). (KHR)
