The good news (and the bad) about math

The good news from the most comprehensive study ever done of gender and math performance?

‘No gender difference’ in scores among children in grades 2 through 11. [see research summary]

The bad news?

In most states [the researchers] reviewed, and at most grade levels, there weren’t any questions that involved complex problem-solving, the ability needed to succeed in high levels of science and math. If tests don’t assess these reasoning skills, they may not be taught. [see CNN article]
