The mathematics component of this program is a joint collaboration between the Mathematics Department and the School of Education and recruits junior and senior undergraduate math majors to K–12 schoolteaching careers. During their senior year, undergraduates have an opportunity to intern in school classrooms. The internship experience, which is offered during the winter and spring quarters, involves approximately five hours of classroom participation per week with an individual stipend. A considerable amount of student tutoring and teaching is involved in the classroom 18 participation.

Outreach programs that focus on underserved communities are especially important for study for a number of reasons: _________________ 1See for example, National Science Resource Center et al. (1997) and Sandia National Laboratories (undated). 14 • The persistent achievement gap in math and science. A tremendous achievement gap between whites and students of color in math and science still exists. Very few strategies seem able to address the different variables that may account for this. Studying outreach programs that show some measure of success in engaging diverse populations in math and science may be the first step in developing creative and innovative ways of solving this problem.
