Eliciting Students' Beliefs about Who Is Good at Mathematics
August 2007, Volume 101, Issue 1, Page 50
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.
