Who's Afraid of Pi R Squared?
Tobias, Sheila
AGB Reports, v22 n2 p32-38 Mar-Apr 1980
A key to continuing occupational segregation by sex is seen to lie in "math avoidance" by women students. Borrowing from the insights of affective education, innovators have developed "reentry mathematics" courses which turn to self-conditioning, the attitudes, the psychological mindset, and the self-defeating behaviors of those with "math anxiety." (Author/MLW)
