MindShift KQED has an informative article about girls getting the message that they are either good at math or not. I know I believe I’m not great at math. Because of this belief, I never pushed myself to become better at math. My daughter sent me this article link and said, “I’m glad I’m good at math.” We need to teach girls to persist through difficulties.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much room for failure, then learning from this failure in our educational system . I invite you to read this article and let me know what you think.
