The purpose of this study is to examine how community service learning affects students' engagement and mathematical understanding of geometric transformations. Six African American and four Latino American sixth grade students participated in the study. These students attended an after-school community learning service activity over the course of a semester. The community service activity centered on promoting art and culture awareness in their school while the academic goal focused on geometric transformations. The questions that guided the study are (1) how can community service learning engage African and Latino Americans in learning geometry, and (2) what is the nature of African and Latino Americans' growth in understandings of geometric transformations.Sixth-grade students were selected because geometric transformations in the coordinate plane are introduced in the sixth grade ...
