By now, most of us know that girls have great math skills. Still, there are some folks out there who are holding on to the bias that boys naturally have better math abilities than girls.
In my latest Math Manifesto video, I go through some of the recent research on gender and math. It’s good news for girls and boys!
More videos are coming, so please subscribe to my YouTube channel: mathforgrownups. Also, I hope you’ll share this video on Twitter, using #mathgirls and post it on your Facebook page. Share the Math for Grownups love!
As always, I’d love to hear what you think. Ask your questions or share your feedback in the comments section. After watching the video, are you convinced — as I am — that both girls and boys have math brains? Why or why not? And to all of you grownup girls, how has your gender affected your affected your math learning and doing? Did you ever buy in to the idea that you could not do math as well as your brothers, father, husband or male classmates? I would love to hear your stories!
