That still does not refute the statement that the women might make better teachers. Also, that study sure did not apply to me. I did decidedly better in classes with female instructors. Possibly because my attendance was much, much better.
I remember reading about some study that was done that showed that children are more likely to prefer a male teacher over a female one.
A bit more empathy in them.
For some reason I always felt that the girls would make better teachers.
Okay, see you later.
It varies. A lot of mathematicians like to work in the financial sector mostly because it pays so well. I think most of the ones I've talked to on my course want to do that. Haven't met a single one who wanted to lecture, though. All three girls I've talked to said they wanted to be maths teachers at high-school level.
That is true, wherever they use math. Pay over here is pretty good for them. How is it over there?
That is one thing that I did like about studying a degree in mathematics -- lots of potential career paths.
Those are two possibilities but some companies hire mathematicians to solve problems for them.
You mean like working in risk management or as an actuary, for example?
I meant in the capacity of a math consultant, a problem solver.
I would do it but probably not for long. It's difficult for me to say if I'd enjoy it because I have no industrial experience. With teaching, at least I have a fairly good idea of what it entails, having been around them for so long.
I meant working in industry or government instead of any type of teaching.
By teacher, do you mean a high-school teacher? And by lab, what sort of lab?
