    1/1/09 - Brown, C.,

    The eminence, safety, and well-being of nations have been entwined for centuries with the ability of their people to deal with sophisticated quantitative ideas. Leading societies have commanded mathematical skills that have brought them advantages in medicine and health, in technology and commerce, in navigation and exploration, in defense and finance, and in the ability to understand past failures and to forecast future developments. History is full of examples. During most of the 20th...

  • Closing of the gender gap in technology enriched science education: a case study

    1/1/00 - Mayer-Smith, Jolie, Pedretti, Erminia, Woodrow, Janice

    This case study explores a popular assertion, namely that success in technology enriched science classrooms is gender dependent. We investigate how students respond to substantive changes that accompany a comprehensive integration of technology with the teaching and learning of secondary science and physics. Specifically, we ask: (1) Do female students view, participate, and achieve differently than male students in technology enhanced science classrooms? and, (2) If not, why not? Empirical...

  • Closing the Achievement Gap

    1/1/05

    Technology makes the assessment of student achievement based on ethnicity more precise and faster and can create and store a huge amount of remediation activities.

  • Early Academic Career Pathways in STEM: Do Gender and Family Status Matter?

    3/1/14 - Tanenbaum, Courtney; Upton, Rachel

    The gender inequities in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) academic workforce are well documented and remain of concern, especially given the urgent calls to increase and broaden participation in STEM. Women of all races and ethnicities continue to compose a small number of science and engineering faculty at U.S. research universities and often do not receive the same level of recognition, career affirmation, and resources as their male colleagues.
