Forgasz, Helen; Leder, Gilah – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Declining enrolments in advanced level mathematics at the school level are noted with concern. Whether school type (single-sex school or co-education) affects participation in mathematics continues to be debated. In this article we examine, by school type and gender, statistical data from 2001 to 2015 on Victorian Certificate of Education…
