  • Fight Like a Girl: Addressing Disparities in Mathematics for Girls
    From the twentieth century perspective, to be told you “fight like a girl” was an ultimate insult. Although this phrase was commonly assigned to physical prowess, it inevitably translated to many areas of scholarly capabilities as well. A wealth of data exist to support no gender differences in capacity for understanding and applying math concepts in K-12 students. Self-confidence is an important variable and predictor for continuity in advanced-level high school courses, college majors with math as a core requisite, and math-centered career choices. Differential achievements in mathematics by boys and girls are likely to begin forming early, and are also more likely to be successfully modified early in life. This session addresses some approaches to best prepare female middle school students to “fight like a girl” with confidence.
