Perspectives on Women and Mathematics.
Jacobs, Judith E., Ed.
The papers presented in the strand on "Women and Mathematics" at the 1978 Annual Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics form the core of this monograph. Two commentaries synthesizing the presentations and offering additional suggestions for action are also included. The papers consider sex-related differences in mathematics achievement, mathematics problems, affective components, mathematics anxiety, sexism in textbooks, mathophia, factors leading to success and the role of the mathematics education community and others in promoting change. A selected bibliography is also given. (MS)
