Synopsis


Stand and Deliver
Edward James Olmos portrays the real-life Jaime Escalante, a no-nonsense mathematic teacher in a tough East LA high school. Handed a classroom full of "losers" and "unteachables," Escalante is determined to turn his young charges' lives around. Drawing from his own cultural heritage, Escalante forms a bond with his largely Hispanic student body, evoking the names of famous Spaniards and Latin Americans whose great accomplishments were predicated on their ability to learn. The students gradually come to realize that the only way they'll escape their own poverty-stricken barrio is to improve themselves intellectually. As a result, the class' academic achievements soar dramatically -- too dramatically for the Educational Testing Service, which is convinced that the class' high test scores are the results of cheating. The triumphant exoneration of Escalante's students provides Stand and Deliver with its rousingly upbeat conclusion. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A "Must See" for beginning Calculus students

    Posted

    I would suggest that every Calculus teacher require their incoming students to watch this movie in their first week of class. You know how the movie Rudy is to football, well, that is what Stand and Deliver is to Calculus. You do not have to be a math major to enjoy this movie. It is another one of those underdog movies where people's abilities are underestimated.

    I show this movie to my 8th grade students at the end of the school year. It gives many of them encouragement that they can overcome any obstacles they may have.

    Movie is a classic. For those cats who enjoy Math , Calculus is always tough so any teacher willing to take the extra time to teach it, is worthy of praise!
