Jackie Rivers, Algebra Project Coordinator, and Claude Snead, Algebra Project Intern, talk about the benefits of the Algebra Project . Excerpted from NCREL's videoseries, Schools That Work: The Research Advantage, videoconference 2, Children as Problem Solvers (NCREL, 1991).
"Black males are one of the highest risk groups for failing in school, and especially for failing in math and science."
"The algebra project gives students a chance to do something different and be something different. Claude Snead is an excellent example of this. He started out as a student in the project at the Oaten Program of the Kingston in Cambridge, and now as a high school senior, he can think of engineering as a serious career option and give something back to other students."
" I like to do something constructive in the sense that I can take some of the skills that I've acquired and give them back to the community basically in the younger kids."
