Dick, Thomas P.; Rallis, Sharon F.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v22 n4 p281-92 Jul 1991
A survey (n=2213) of high school seniors from nine Rhode Island schools studied their academic and career choices related to science and engineering and the perceived influences on those choices. Gender differences are discussed for the influences of parents, pay, interest, and teachers, with the latter potentially influencing career choices of women strong in mathematics. (MDH)
