Marchand, Susan G., Ed.
This book evolved from projects that participants in a training institute for sex desegregation developed to eliminate sex bias in their classrooms and school districts. The first chapter of the book delineates recent research in sex bias related to achievement in mathematics and science. The following five chapters present projects on the following themes: (1) evaluation for sex bias in school mathematics and science programs, (2) communication with and education of parents and staff, (3) the use of word problems and of a unit on spatial relationships, (4) career awareness for males and females, and (5) the use of both female and male role models in science careers. A large resource section is appended which includes project data collection instruments, relevant documents, and instructional materials. (Author/MK)
