Rennie, Leonie; Parker, Lesley H.
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v9 n3 p257-73 Nov 1997
Examines students' perceptions of learning settings in single-sex and mixed-sex mathematics classes and teachers' responses to those different classroom contexts. Concludes that single-sex classrooms provide a more supportive environment for girls but a significantly less supportive environment for boys. The single-sex environment provides opportunities for teachers to address apparent shortcomings arising from students' previous educational experiences. Contains 17 references. (Author/ASK)
