One mathematical topic that always seems to have some discussion is the gender gap in mathematics. This is why I chose to research and find out more information on this topic for my EMTH 217 class. Here is a quote from the first page of my paper.
“According to Sofia Catsambis (2005), the gender gap in mathematics has been an issue of national concern since the mid-1970s because it is a matter of educational equity with extensive consequences for the lives of women and their families (p. 220). Since educational equity is important to all educators, it is important for educators to know about the gender gap in mathematics.”
So, since the gender gap in mathematics is a topic that I think is important for all educators to know about, I will supply you with a copy of my paper, so that you can further understand the gender gap and further your knowledge on what you can do to create equity in your mathematics classrooms.
