The Problem of Women and Mathematics.
Fox, Lynn H.
This report is divided into two main parts. The first part, The Problem of Women and Mathematics, emphasizes results of ten research projects initially funded by the National Institute of Education (NIE) in 1979. They are emphasized because the findings are current and the projects touched on all major issues. This part has sections on Sex Differences in Mathematics, Factors Influencing the Study and Learning of Mathematics, and Factors Influencing Career Interests and Choice. The second section, Where Do We Go From Here, is drawn from the book "Women and the Mathematical Mystique." This part suggests directions for research and directions for change. The document concludes with a list of references. (MP)
