The Numbers Game: Gender and Attention to Numerical Information.
Jackson, Linda A.; And Others
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n7-8 p559-68 Oct 1995
Examined whether males attend more to numerical information than females if it were presented in a male-related or gender-neutral context, and whether females would attend more to numerical information if presented in a female-related context. Research involving 162 undergraduates support this hypothesis. Implications concerning gender-linkage of math materials and gender differences in math performance are discussed. (GR)
