Dr. Rehema Gray, a professor at CSU Northridge, made a presentation on CSU’s Summer Algebra Institutes at a College Board-sponsored gathering that drew more than 500 higher education participants from across the country.
The Summer Algebra Institute represents a model for collaboration among academia, community and faith-based institutions to develop African American students' skills in mathematics.
The program is part of CSU’s African American Initiative designed to increase the college preparation, enrollment and graduation rates of African American students.
The algebra program uses a culturally relevant mathematics curriculum designed to enhance academic performance, nurture college-going aspirations and accelerate acquisition of math skills.
The presentation took place at the "Dream Deferred" conference, April 26-27 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles.
