Parental Influences on Junior High School Girls' Mathematical Expectancies and Course Plans.
Parsons, Jacquelynne E.; And Others
This project investigated the determinants of one's decision to take or not to take mathematics. Conclusions of the study include: (1) parents do have sex-differentiated perceptions of their children's mathematics aptitude despite the similarity in actual performance of boys and girls; and (2) parents as role models of sex-differentiated mathematical behaviors do not have a direct effect on their children's self concepts, expectations, or course plans.
