Toward Clarifying the Meanings of "Gender" in Mathematics Education Research
Damarin, Suzanne; Erchick, Diana B.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v41 n4 p310-323 Jul 2010
The importance of clarity in definitions of gender is discussed and several conceptual models of gender are presented. Four of these models begin with biological sex differences but draw attention to other aspects of gender. Four models set biology aside and are based on social and cultural theories. Some of the advantages of the latter for mathematics education researchers are identified. (Contains 1 footnote.)
