The series continues with Stand and Deliver. Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz and special guests Tatiana Camacho and Thomas Valdez for an hour of discussion. In Stand and Deliver, Math teacher Jaime Escalante comes to an underprivileged high school to find students performing well below their grade levels. While other, more cynical teachers don't believe the students are capable of improving, Escalante sees potential in them and takes it upon himself to teach them advanced calculus in time for senior year.
In this special evening event, Steve is joined by Tatiana Camacho and Thomas Valdez, former students of Escalante's, for an hour of conversation about the man — and the math — behind the movie.
Please watch Stand and Deliver at your leisure in the days leading up to the event. Subscribers to Hulu and/or HBO Max can stream the film for free. If you don't subscribe to either of those, you can rent the film for $2.99 from YouTube, Amazon Prime, or Apple TV.
Though viewing each film is not required for participation, it is suggested that participants stream the movies independently prior to the event.
Please note that this is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
