Articles doesn’t seem to be released yet, but there is a short write-up on Ars Technica:
“A new study suggests that elementary school may be a breeding ground for this anxiety. The study found that when elementary school teachers, who are primarily female, displayed a high level of anxiety about math, that skittishness was transmitted to their female students. Those students who spent a year with a math-phobic teacher displayed lower math achievement and an increased belief in stereotypes about female mathematical ability.”
I’m anxious to read the actual paper and judge the claims for myself.
