Eliciting Students' Beliefs about Who Is Good at Mathematics

Shelby Morge 

August 2007, Volume 101, Issue 1, Page 50

Abstract:
A series of activities designed to elicit students' mathematics-related beliefs, particularly those related to gender. As a result of the activities, females in upper-level classes rated themselves as having less confidence than males, and viewing a movie clip was sufficient for some students to modify their descriptions of someone who is good at mathematics.
