Sack Lunch Seminar: Why Should We Care if Girls Like Math?
- Thursday, September 10, 2020 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm
- SUB 168
Nearly two decades have passed since a mass-produced Barbie doll caught flak for saying “Math class is tough.” However, the perception (or is it reality?!) that girls don’t like math persists. No matter your connection to math or girls, we ALL should care whether girls like math. Join Suzi Taylor, MSU Science Math Resource Center, and discover why math is considered “the most misunderstood subject,” look at trends for girls and women in math (plus all of STEM), examine some surprising data about women’s attitudes toward math in countries around the world, and decide whether Hollywood is with us or against us!
