The entire featured Math series by Danica McKellar is a huge boon for girls who thought they weren't good at math (how silly is that?).
Here are some hopeful stats from a Girls Inc. study that make it clear that girls rock the numbers:
- Among SAT takers a higher percentage of young women than young men are enrolled in honors math courses (55% vs 45%).
- Grade point averages in math and the natural sciences are higher for young women than for young men.
- Women earn 47% of bachelor’s degrees in mathematics.
Aw, yeah! Any math-readergirlz out there?
