Author:Sheila Tobias; Math Forum
Description: In her 1990 book, They're Not Dumb, They're Different, Tobias addresses a concern that has been widely felt across the country for years: the shortfall in the number of students who go on to become scientists. She notes the importance of high school mathematics in preparation for studying science in college, and suggests that in order for students to go on to become scientists, more emphasis needs to be placed on early and continuous exposure to mathematics. Tobias makes the claim that science must open its doors to the ranks of the 'second tier', those who for one reason or another have decided not to pursue a career in science. A geometry.pre-college newsgroup discussion.
