Why girls don't like math?Disclaimer This is not necessarily my opinion or the opinion of anyone I know (living or dead).

Re: Why girls don't like math?Hi Jane;
Of course not, I don't joke about math. It would suprise me if anyone gets it. My feeling is that know one pays enough attention to my posts to ever figure it out.

Re: Why girls don't like math?
Of course it isn't. ^^ These guys are already biased in the first place, so anything that a girl does they translate in their minds that it equals to a distaste for math. We all meet people like that once in a while.

No, but 3 from a world with 7 billion people doesn't seem much. >> The fact that there are people who suceed doesn't mean there are no difficulties, they suceed in spite of them. Special people? No. Special circumstances? Maybe... "Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true."

Oh. I wouldn't know. I don't know any Canadian girls. People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy. ~ Anton Chekhov Cheer up, emo kid. #13 20090810 16:32:41
