Factors Influencing Retention in Introductory Biology Curriculum.
Sorensen, Kathryn H.
This paper focuses on curriculum development in higher education and gender differences in science, mathematics, and engineering education. Females attribute their problems to not being smart enough to handle the course materials; however, males attribute their problems to poor teaching or the course materials. Classes themselves and the internal curriculum are other sources of student complaints. The real issue goes directly to pedagogy. (Contains 18 references.) (YDS)
