Bridge to Calculus is a mathematics enrichment program that seeks to overcome the achievement gap by promoting minority student achievement in advanced calculus at the John D. O’Bryant High School of Mathematics and Science. This collaboration between mathematics teachers and administrators at the O’Bryant and Northeastern University College of Arts and Sciences Mathematics and Education department faculty members, provides academic year coaching for O’Bryant students by a teacher who specializes in AP Calculus test preparation; mentoring by NU mathematics students; and a six-week summer calculus course for rising juniors and seniors at the O’Bryant taught by NU and O’Bryant faculty and NU graduate students.
