Identifying Gaps in Mathematics Preparation that Contribute to Ethnic, Gender, and American/Foreign Differences in Precalculus Performance.
Baranchik, Alvin; Cherkas, Barry
Journal of Negro Education, v71 n4 p253-68 Fall 2002
Prior to a precalculus course, 2,000 Asian, Hispanic, black, and white college students were graded on three dimensions of mathematical achievement: early skills, later skills, and formulation. The development of later skills was substantially the most important to successful course completion. Results suggest that for black and white students, environment (American versus foreign-born) can play a decisive role in the development of skills needed to succeed in precalculus.
