While other types of gender inequality have declined dramatically since the s for example, in legal rights, labor force participation rates, and educational attainmentsome forms of sex segregation are remarkably resilient in the industrial world. She explained that these constructions are possible because of an alignment of rationality with masculinity in Western thinking, in opposition to femininity which is aligned with the irrational and the emotional. In Iceland, girls outshine boys significantly. The idea of an alignment of mathematics with masculinity can be connected with contemporary popular cultural images of mathematiciansfor example in the Hollywood films A Beautiful Mind and Good Will Hunting and the US TV series Numb3rs.
Gender in science, innovation, technology and engineering GenderInSITE is an international initiative to promote the role of women in science, innovation, technology and engineering, and to demonstrate how applying a gender lens to SITE can provide deeper insights, more effective programmes and more sustainable outcomes in the context of development. Studies have argued that women talk more than men, that men occupy both high and low extremes of intelligence, and even, recently, that there are strong differences in the very wiring of male and female brains. Evidence on this problem is quickly stacking up. Maidenhead, Open University Press: Mendick discusses how the alignment of mathematics with masculinity creates tensions for girls and women doing the subject. Psychological Bulletin, ; 1 : DOI:
And what about between the views of learners from different ethnic groups? While the vast majority of Americans today believe Gender should have equal social and legal rights, they also believe men and women are very different, and they believe innate differences cause them to freely choose distinctly masculine or feminine life paths. Explores how and why people reproduce gender and race and class stereotypes in everyday interactions. Effects can be cumulative: taking fewer math classes will negatively affect achievement in math and attitudes toward math, creating a powerful positive feedback system.

Cultural shifts of this sort occur only gradually, but some change can be seen on the horizon. Google Scholar Dowling, P. Cecilia Science and Mathematics - Shortening the Shadow book. But even when fields are defined more precisely, countries differ in some unexpected ways.
Despite overall similarities in math skills, boys felt significantly more confident in their abilities than girls did and were more motivated to do well.

Even if employers base hiring and promotion solely on performance-based criteria, their taken-for-granted beliefs about average gender differences may bias their judgments of qualification and performance.
But actual data about gender differences in math ability tell a very different story. Boys are also more likely than girls to get nearly all the answers wrong.

Search the TechMatrix for tools that support science education, are built using authentic scientific inquiry, and allow students to practice being scientists.
There are also plenty of areas where core technologies can be improved. Female representation is generally weaker in advanced industrial societies than in developing ones. Buxton, L.
Is there any way that you can teach maths that connect it with any of the subjects you identified it as being least like? Curricular and career choices become more than practical Gender decisions in these contexts; they also represent acts of identity construction and self-affirmation. How can biomarker researchers take biological sex differences into account?
Simulations are perhaps the most widely available technology tools for science content at every grade level. London, Cassell: An early book on gender equity and mathematics but one filled with ideas for how to approach the issue in the classroom. The subject of sex differences is a staple of popular culture, and various fields—sociology, psychology, neurobiology, and, recently, genomics—have taken on the topic.
