Begun in 1982, the Algebra Project is transforming math education in twenty-five cities. Founded on the belief that math-science literacy is a prerequisite for full citizenship in society, the Project works with entire communities-parents, teachers, and especially students-to create a culture of literacy around algebra, a crucial stepping-stone to college math and opportunity.<br><br>Telling the story of this remarkable program, Robert Moses draws on lessons from the 1960s Southern voter registration he famously helped organize: 'Everyone said sharecroppers didn't want to vote. It wasn't until we got them demanding to vote that we got attention. Today, when kids are falling wholesale through the cracks, people say they don't want to learn. We have to get the kids themselves to demand what everyone says they don't want.'<br><br>We see the Algebra Project organizing community by community. Older kids serve as coaches for younger students and build a self-sustained tradition of leadership. Teachers use innovative techniques. And we see the remarkable success stories of schools like the predominately poor Hart School in Bessemer, Alabama, which outscored the city's middle-class flagship school in just three years.<br><br><i>Radical Equations</i> provides a model for anyone looking for a community-based solution to the problems of our disadvantaged schools.</p><br clear="all">http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=97808070312782002-02-01T00:30:00-05:00Games for Math by Peggy Kayewww.randomhouse.com<a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780394755106"><img align="right" src="http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/catalog_cover.pperl?9780394755106" border="1"/></a><h3><a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780394755106">Games for Math</a> <br/><b>Written by</b> <a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/author/results.pperl?authorid=15231">Peggy Kaye</a></h3><b>Trade Paperback</b>, 256 pages | Pantheon | Education - Teaching Methods - Mathematics | <b>$16.95</b> | 978-0-394-75510-6 (0-394-75510-3)<p>At a time when the poor math performance of American school children has labeled us a "nation of underachievers," what can parents--often themselves daunted by the mysteries of mathematics--do to help their children?
