This manual is intended for chapters to use when implementing and running a MindSET program.
Please do not distribute this manual to K-12 students or parents.
Read about the high-level goals of the MindSET program.
The program targets students who are off-track for completing Algebra 1 by 8th grade, and hence calculus by 12th grade, or who lack the motivation or encouragement to excel in math and science. These include women, minorities, and other populations that are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Without an encouraging and stimulating math and science environment, these students will be denied access to lucrative career fields. While MindSET does not specifically target students who are already doing well in math and science, these students are not excluded from the program.
MindSET aims to address its goals using a three-pronged approach:
- Student Education
- Teacher Training
- Parent Workshops
Additionally, the K-12 programs will be assessed based on standardized metrics (see the data collection section) to determine their effectiveness. Therefore, chapters are also responsible for collecting and tracking this benchmark data.
The success of the program depends on various parties whose roles are described here.
- NMC - National Management Committee
- RMC - Regional Management Committee
- CIT - Chapter Implementation Team
- Chapter members
- MindSET Advisor (may be a chapter advisor or an alumnus)
- School liaison
