The main goals of the Discrete Math Project are to promote a college and career readiness culture and to help traditionally disenfranchised students qualify for and succeed in college-level mathematics courses, ultimately broadening the base of student populations in STEM-related college majors. We have designed courses for curious, thoughtful students who need more than formulas and equations. The project takes issues of equity in mathematics education by opening access to mathematics to traditionally marginalized students through the introduction of non-traditional, but relevant topics. This provides all students equal footing.
