Overview
When Jaime Escalante leaves the corporate engineering world for a job teaching math at James A. Garfield High School in East Los Angeles, he encounters an environment where teachers simply hope to manage discipline rather than see students achieve. He wants to change that culture. Using some humor and unconventional methods, he inspires his math students to achieve, even motivating them to come to school on Saturday in order to progress. When his students start passing the AP Calculus exam, the testing service issues an alarm, convinced that such rapid improvement in test scores is not possible. Escalante is questioned as a possible cheater before his students retake the test and again pass with glowing marks, justifying all the work that they and Escalante put into their studies.
