Sex-Related Differences in Mathematics Achievement, Spatial Visualization and Affective Factors
Fennema, Elizabeth; Sherman, Julia
American Educational Research Journal, 14, 1, 51-71, Win 77
The data do not support either the expectations that males are invariably superior in mathematics achievement and spatial visualization or the idea that differences between the sexes increase with age and/or mathematics difficulty. The pattern of differences in mathematics achievement, spatial visualization and affective variables strongly suggests the influence of socio-cultural factors. (Author/MV)
