Abstract

The new National Science Foundation-funded math instruction program offered at Chief Dull Knife College, the tribal college of the Northern Cheyenne Nation, is designed to prevent students from dropping out of math classes. The new program provides students–most of whom are women–remedial and other support services to improve their scholastic performance and give them with the opportunity for continuing their post-secondary education. The project targets students who score below college- level math skills on math placement tests administered in the first semester they enroll.
