Mexican American High School Students' Perceptions of Mathematics and Mathematics Teaching.
Telese, James A.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v21 n2 p154-69 May 1999
A survey of 226 Mexican-American mathematics students at a Texas high school found that student attitudes toward mathematics were not very favorable, with female students' attitudes being more negative than those of males. There was a greater occurrence of traditional, teacher-centered activities in all classes in comparison to nontraditional, inquiry-based activities. (Author/TD)
