The Role Of Black Colleges In The Development Of Mathematicians, Viveka O. Borum, Adriel Adon Hilton, Erica Walker

Spelman College Faculty Publications

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are home to almost 400,000 of the nation’s college and university population and account for nearly 25% of degrees conferred to African Americans, according to Hale (2006). They have been the launching pads for threefourths of African Americans who hold doctorate degrees, three-fourths of Black officers in the military, and four-fifths of African American federal judges (Hale, 2006). In addition, fifty percent of African American faculty in predominantly White research universities received their bachelor’s degrees at an HBCU (Hale, 2006). These are significant percentages given the relatively small number of Black ...


Impact Of Teaching Styles And Other Related Variables On Student Achievement In Mathematics And The Implications For Curriculum Management, Gloria Howard May 2009

Impact Of Teaching Styles And Other Related Variables On Student Achievement In Mathematics And The Implications For Curriculum Management, Gloria Howard

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

The purpose of the study was to determine if student achievement in mathematics can be improved by student and teacher related variables such as the use of higher order thinking skills/Bloom's taxonomy, teaching styles and techniques, lesson plans, staff development, socioeconomic status, gender of students, attendance, student learning styles, student motivation, and student perceptions of class climate. The sample included 121 second-grade students taught by nine teachers from a high-achieving suburban school in Georgia. The teacher evaluation model was based on NCATE standards. Persuades (1 993, 2008) Observation-Based Instructional Assessment (OBIA) system and Lesson Plan Form in Alignment ...


Institutional Predictors Of Black College Students' Academic Success In Computer Science And Mathematics Majors, Francis O. Onukwuli Jul 1990

Institutional Predictors Of Black College Students' Academic Success In Computer Science And Mathematics Majors, Francis O. Onukwuli

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

The purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which controllable institutional variables, as perceived by Black college students, are related to their academic performance. The population for this study came from an historically Black college in Atlanta, Georgia. Using an Ex Post Facto research design, the study focused on the freshman year experience by asking 38 second year computer science and mathematics majors to review their freshman year retrospectively. Data were collected from the population using the Student Survey on Awareness and Utilization Instrument. Pearson correlation and regression were used to analyze the data. The study revealed ...
