Moreno, Susan E.; Muller, Chandra
American Journal of Education, v108 n1 p30-57 Nov 1999
Analyzes the influence of calculus performance on choosing a mathematics, science, or engineering (MSE) major, noting the role of diverse students' participation in the Emerging Scholars Program (ESP), which helps strengthen calculus performance and encourage persistence in MSE.
