Motivational and Gender Differences: Sixth-Grade Students' Mathematical Problem-Solving Behavior.
Vermeer, Harriet J.; Boekaerts, Monique; Seegers, Gerard
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n2 p308-15 Jun 2000
Studies differences in boys' and girls' (N=158) mathematical problem-solving behavior in relation to two types of tasks, computations and applications. Differences were dependent on contents of tasks and gender. Girls rated themselves lower on confidence and attributed bad results more often to lack of capacity and to the task difficulty. No gender differences were observed in relation to computations. (Contains 26 references, 4 tables, and 2 appendixes.) (Author/GCP)
