Factors Associated with the Underrepresentation of African Americans in Mathematics and Science.
Powell, Lois
Journal of Negro Education, v59 n3 p292-98 Sum 1990

Learned helplessness in science and mathematics can be ameliorated through desensitization of mathematics phobia, freeing educational environments of crowding and noise, and special career counseling for minorities.
