Description
:  Success in the college mathematics classroom is the gateway to a variety of lucrative and prestigious majors at best and a general education requirement for all college students at the very least. Yet our students come from a variety of mathematical backgrounds, many of which are peppered with equity issues. The challenge is how to fill the gaps and provide a more level playing field for student success from first-generation college students to students from low socio-economic backgrounds to women and underrepresented minorities to non-traditional and transfer students. We will look at some common equity issues that can impact success in mathematics, as well as strategies for managing these potential roadblocks.
