ABSTRACT

What are some of the barriers to women's achievement in postsecondary settings, particularly in math and science? How can educators support the development of females to ensure that they reach their potential? Nonintellectual factors may improve the prediction of academic success beyond intellectual dispositions, and yet the typical coed university is still a chilly climate for women. What other issues are occurring in the social context for female students? This article explores the "cycle" of women's experience of learning, focusing on students in an introductory math course and on preservice teachers. Implications for graduate women students are also considered.
