Gender Differences in Learning and Achievement in Mathematics, Science, and Technology and Strategies for Equity: A Literature Review.
Valentine, Elizabeth F.
The literature is rich with studies investigating gender differences in math, science, and technology. While some inequities have been evidenced and studied for years, we are still finding out many new sources of gender bias in the classroom. That girls think and learn differently as well as interact with equipment differently from boys is a major key to beginning to understanding how best to educate girls in math, science and technological areas in order to encourage their continuation in these areas as career fields. Suggestions for strategies and interventions for rethinking gender biases in the classroom and professional organizations are presented. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/YDS)
