boys and girls really don't have as much of an intellectual separation in areas
such as math as we thought.
Remember that old elementary schoolyard taunt, "Boys go to
Jupiter to get more stupider. Girls go to college to get more
knowledge"? Turns out that that saying doesn't really cut it
anymore. According to
For as long as we can remember, there has been a controversy over whether or
not men and women have superior abilities with that tricky numbers
subject. They even tried to say that it was because men had larger
brains! Not so, girlies, not so at all.
Recently, studies performed on the "gender gap" have proven that if
there ever was an actual gender gap, it has most certainly taken a fall.
What was once boiled down to the biology has instead been attributed to
education, culture and environment. What does that mean for you? Your
skill in the math has absolutely nothing to do with your gender, babe, so
thrust your hand in the air and rock the next Q Teach throws out there.
Talk it out: Are you good at math?
