HiMAP, High School Mathematics Access Program, was started in 1995 by Dr. Viji Sundar, chair of the CSU Stanislaus Mathematics Department, and is an attempt to further math education in middle school and high school age students.

With the ratio of teachers to students becoming increasingly larger, Sundar believes that if students are able to interact in a smaller setting, they have the ability to thrive in math and science.
d spend 10 minutes a day with each child each week, no child should have problems,#8221, said Sundar.
According to Sundar, teenage girls often struggle in math after fifth grade because of perceived pressure from the opposite sex.

Sundar soon realized however, that there was a definite need to include boys in the program as well.

The coaches that are teaching the students are CSU Stanislaus students, University faculty and secondary school teachers.

Sundar believes that another aspect of success in their program is derived from communication between herself and the coaches.

In their inaugural year in 1995, the program was packed with 127 girls.Each year, they have remained steady and successful.

TURLOCK, Calif., April 12 (AScribe Newswire) -- Dr. Viji Sundar, a California State University, Stanislaus mathematics professor who determinedly pioneered innovative programs to help students and teachers improve their math skills, has been named a recipient of the California State University Wang Family Excellence Award in the category of Natural Sciences, Mathematical and Computer Sciences, and Engineering.
Sundar is the first faculty member from CSU Stanislaus to be honored with the Wang award.She will be presented with it at the May 10 CSU Board of Trustees meeting in Long Beach.
A member of the CSU Stanislaus faculty for 27 years and twice honored with Outstanding Professor awards, Sundar is being recognized for her dedication to teaching, research, service, and her efforts in improving mathematics instruction in California while encouraging students to excel with numbers.
"Students, many of whom have been failed by the educational system, find a sense of belonging in our programs," Sundar said.
Sundar has been remarkably successful at attaining grant support for her programs.With dogged perseverance, she has brought in more than $3.8 million to CSU Stanislaus over the past 20 years to provide professional development for K-12 mathematics teachers and help middle and high school students improve their math and science skills.
Sundar has devoted personal time and efforts to identify empowering strategies for those she calls the 'math anxious' to gain confidence and counteract negative messages about learning and mastering math.
"Involving students in the programs and activities that excite them is the key to their becoming critical thinkers and responsible citizens," Sundar said.
A native of India who came to the United States as a graduate student and earned her Master's degree and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, Sundar is recognized statewide and nationally as an outstanding and innovative mathematics professor.She recalls being stirred to action when it became apparent to her that many college students' dismal understanding of mathematics was caused by a school system that allowed them to graduate without those skills.Sundar's students and teachers became research subjects as she sought support for programs that focused on helping them overcome negative math experiences in their past.
Programs she has developed through grants and donors to empower students and teachers to overcome math anxiety have included:
Sundar also has generated mentoring opportunities for new and probationary faculty members at CSU Stanislaus.She is an active researcher whose publications evoke a passion for the subjects of equity issues and effective mathematics education.Sundar has been an active member of the Mathematics Teacher Preparation and Assessment Advisory Panel of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
"Just to know that some of my efforts have helped students succeed in their mathematics and science studies while making the subjects more palatable has been the biggest reward for all," Sundar said."This honor is recognition of those who have dedicated themselves to the mission and goals of the program," she said."I have been very fortunate in being able to assemble a stellar crew of students, staff, administrators, and faculty to share in my dream."

The host for this academy was ..., 13 Nov 2011 [cached]
The host for this academy was CSU mathematics professor Viji Sundar, who leads HiMAP, an active tutoring and outreach effort in math for local pre-college students. She had attended other technical literacy workshops held by me, so she invited me to introduce her Noyce scholars to classroom-relevant technical writing techniques.
We also shared a buffet lunch with our host Prof. Sundar and with Robert A. Marino, dean of the College of Natural Sciences at CSU Stanislaus.
The motto of Prof. Sundar's Noyce program is "from the [San Joaquin] valley to the valley.
