Gender Differences in Mathematical Trajectories.
Leahey, Erin; Guo, Guang
Social Forces, v80 n2 p713-32 Dec 2001
Large national data sets and curvilinear growth models were used to examine gender differences in mathematics achievement trajectories from elementary through high school. Despite relatively equal starting points and relatively equal slopes, boys had a faster rate of acceleration, resulting in a slight gender difference by 12th grade. (Contains 39 references.)
