WASHINGTON - Little girls may learn to fear math from the women who are their earliest teachers.

Despite gains in recent years, women still trail men in some areas of math achievement, and the question of why has provoked controversy. Now, a study of first- and second-graders suggests what may be part of the answer: Female elementary school teachers who are concerned about their own math skills could be passing that along to the little girls they teach.

Young students tend to model themselves after adults of the same sex, and having a female teacher who is anxious about math may reinforce the stereotype that boys are better at math than girls, explained Sian L. Beilock, an associate professor in psychology at the University of Chicago

We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them."

En een nederlands bericht erbij: http://noorderlicht....richt/43011855/

Doet me trouwens denken aan de wiskunde leerkracht die wij hadden in de eerste 2 middelbaren. Die vrouw kon er wat van. En ze kon er zich ook in opwinden als de leerlingen het niet snapten. "Dat is nu toch het simpelste dat ge kunt willen" zei ze vaak :eusa_whistle:
