VIDEO: Black Students Can Excel in AP Math

While watching Dr. Mims discuss equity through his Calculus Project consider this reflective questions:

  • Dr. Mims uses several methods to support Black and Brown students in math like grouping Calculus Project students in cohorts, peer tutoring, running an academic support center and pre-teaching content in the summer. How do you support growth to underserved students?
  • How do you build confidence with students who don't see themselves as successful?
  • What structures of inequity like social promotion or tracking have you dismantled or what to change within your school or district to improve equity and inclusion?
  • Additional resource, brief video on Robert Moses, Founder of the Algebra Project, and his mission to improve math literacy as a form of democracy: https://www.wcvb.com/article/civil-rights-leader-moves-to-the-classroom/8062333#
