children who suffer from it. Bibliography lists 20+ sources. Mathanxi.wps
Gender and the Capacity for Learning Mathematics : An in-depth, 20 page
research paper in which the writer seeks to determine whether which sex is more apt to
have problems grasping math concepts at an early age. Report contains analysis,
methodology, discussion, etc; Numerous studies are cited and it is found that while girls
generally perform better, they are more likely to avoid harder levels of math than are
their male counterparts. Standard bibliography lists 20+ sources and a FREE annotated
("working") bibliography is included ! Mathgend.wps
