Increasing the participation of Native American students in mathematics and science is the one goal of Montana's statewide reform program. This video documents its approach through outreach by university and college systems, mentoring programs, and recruitment of future Native American
teachers. In the classroom, Native American students study math and science while working in groups and drawing upon their native cultures.
