Math
Since 1977, EQUALS programs have worked to increase access and
equity in mathematics for students in traditionally
under-represented groups. Gender and race, class and culture are
issues that affect all students. FAMILY MATH is a program
developed by EQUALS, at the Lawrence Hall of Science, University
of California, Berkeley, California. The goal of FAMILY MATH is to
encourage underrepresented groups (especially girls and minority
students) to enter careers that use mathematics. FAMILY MATH is,
of course, family-based.
