To Include More Students, Don't Focus on Contests: Prepare for Mathematics!
Belcastro, Sarah-Marie
Mathematics Teacher, v97 n2 p84 Feb 2004
Mathematical contests should be decentralized to allow access to non competitive activities so as to enable students to participate and succeed in Mathematics. These activities should be compellingly interesting so that students enjoy learning about proofs and abstract structures rather than just solving problems.
