Conclusion – Women and Mathematics: The Effect of Teaching Practices on Girls’ Mathematical Confidence

I have submitted my literature review to my advisor for the last time! Here in my last post I won’t go over my literature review in full detail since I’ve already done that in updates one, two, and three, but as a quick summary I looked into the effects of different mathematical pedagogies on female […]

Update #3: Women and Mathematics: The Effect of Teaching Practices on Girls’ Mathematical Confidence

As summer has now passed and I’m back at the College I can successfully say my research is complete! Since update #2 I’ve written and edited the remainder of my literature review. The last section I had to complete was informal pedagogy – focusing on how people and activities outside of the classroom affect female […]

Update #1 – Women and Mathematics: The Effect of Teaching Practices on Girls’ Mathematical Confidence
