Summary
"Females consistently score lower than males on standardized tests of mathematics, yet no such differences exist in the classroom. These differences are not trivial, nor are they insignificant. Test scores help determine entrance to college and graduate school and, therefore, by extension, a person's job and future success. If females receive lower test scores, then they also receive fewer opportunities." "Why does this discrepancy exist? This book presents a series of chapters that address these issues by integrating the latest research findings and theories."--Jacket
