Scholarships for all women have grown immensely, including both academic and athletic scholarships. Negative stereotypes can have a negative impact on young women when they complete tests of mathematics and spatial reasoning. Applied Developmental Psychology, 26, — Curiosity, persistence and hard-work are the attributes of high performersaccording to research by Deborah Eyre.

      Teachers need to get girls interested in maths before choosing their GCSEs and younger students should encounter a variety of challenging maths problems. In the areas of physics, computer science, engineering, and chemistry, women earn a much smaller percentage of degrees. At age 10, she started reading science fiction books for inspiration, but none of them featured women. For example, elementary students might solve math problems to discover the location of a buried treasure.

      If a student believes that intelligence and abilities are set at birth, she may be more likely to downplay achievement and give up on challenging tasks. Curiosity, persistence and hard-work are the attributes of high performersaccording to research by Deborah Eyre. These gender differences are observable as early as first grade.
