Aptitude and Experience Influences on Proportional Reasoning during Adolescence: Focus on Male-Female Differences.
Linn, Marcia C.; Pulos, Steven
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v14 n1 p30-46 Jan 1983
Whether differences in aptitude and experiences explain sex differences in proportional reasoning is examined. Subjects were pupils in grades seven, nine, and 11 from three school districts. Results indicated proportional reasoning occurs infrequently for both sexes, with males performing slightly better. Aptitude and experience measures did not account for sex differences. (MP)
