Working Group on Gender and Mathematics: Gathering Reflective Voices.
Erchick, Diana B.; Condron, Linda
This paper reviews the history of the work of the PME-NA Gender and Mathematics Working Group, and the progress made toward the intended end product of the Working Group. The first section, Introduction and Review, outlines the history and work to date of the group. The second section, PME-NA XXIV Session Goals, delineates the plans of the group for the PME-NA IV sessions. The third section, Review of Contributed Voices, includes abstracts of the 13 papers submitted for the monograph project and being reviewed and discussed in this year's conference sessions. These papers are organized into four categories: Reflecting on Voices in the Literature includes three literature reviews; Voices of Inquiry and Adolescent Girl includes three papers reporting on adolescent girls' experiences with mathematics; Voices from Post Secondary Classrooms includes three papers reporting on work in post secondary mathematics and mathematics education classrooms; and Voices (Re)Questioning where four scholars raise questions about the work we do and future directions for inquiry around gender and mathematics.
