Debunking Myths about Gender and Mathematics Performance

Pt 286

Debunking Myths about Gender and Mathematics Performance – Jonathan M. Kane and Janet E. Mertz via /.

“A new study was published today in Notices of the American Mathematical Society, looking at data from 86 countries, to test the ‘greater male variability hypothesis’ as the primary reason for the scarcity of outstanding women mathematicians. It concludes that cultural and not biological factors are the chief causes of the gap in math skills between men and women.

We are what we celebrate!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
