Do Talented Women Fear Math?
Stroup, Kala; Jasnoski, M. L.
Talented women were defined as college freshmen or sophomores having at least three years of high school mathematics and a mathematics ACT score of 27 or higher. The proposition that math anxiety would result in math avoidance when these talented women entered college was studied. The conclusion was that these talented women are generally not avoiding math because they are anxious. Possible explanations are given and suggestions for further research are made. (MP)
