Picker, Susan H.; Berry, John S.
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v43 n1 p65-94 2000
Describes a research project that had two goals: to design and develop a tool with which to investigate pupils' images of mathematicians, and to use the device to compare those images held by lower secondary pupils in five countries. Reports that with small cultural differences, certain stereotypical images of mathematicians were common to pupils in all five countries. (Contains 55 references.) (Author/ASK)
