Gender-Related Differences in Interaction Patterns in Elementary School Inquiry Mathematics Classrooms.
Gregg, Diana Underwood
The purposes of this study were to: (1) identify interaction patterns that emerged during mathematics instruction in elementary school classrooms that established an "inquiry" mathematics tradition, (2) describe any gender-related differences in these patterns, and (3) attempt to account for the presence or absence of such differences. Preliminary analysis suggests that aspects of an inquiry approach to mathematics instruction may have had a positive impact in providing gender-equitable learning opportunities for boys and girls.
