Below I have collected some articles on studies about some topics that are worth reading and taking some time to reflect upon.  If you wish to discuss any of these articles, or send me some additional ones that deserve to be here, do not hesitate to contact me.

Perception of Gender in STEM
  1. "A study of how both men and women perceive each other's mathematical ability finds that an unconscious bias against women could be skewing hiring decisions, widening the gender gap in mathematical professions like engineering."

  2. "Male [college] students assume their male classmates knew more about course material than female students — even if the women earned better grades."
  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/02/16/the-remarkably-different-answers-men-and-women-give-when-asked-whos-the-smartest-in-the-class/?tid=sm_fb

  4. "Students gave professors they thought were male much higher evaluations across the board than they did professors they thought were female, regardless of what gender the professors actually were."
  5. http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/12/09/gender_bias_in_student_evaluations_professors_of_online_courses_who_present.html

  6. "More than four fifths (83%) of the students interviewed described different standards for female and male instructors. For many students, these higher expectations for female faculty were conscious and explicit."

The Biases of Evaluations
  1. "Students gave professors they thought were male much higher evaluations across the board than they did professors they thought were female, regardless of what gender the professors actually were."
    http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/12/09/gender_bias_in_student_evaluations_professors_of_online_courses_who_present.html

  2. "The better the professors were, as measured by their students' grades in later classes, the lower their ratings from students."

Framing of Math and Science
  1. "Researchers found that students perform better in science where they read stories about how famous scientists struggled rather than when they read stories about what those scientists achieved."
    http://www.npr.org/2016/06/07/481058613/how-the-stories-told-of-brilliant-scientists-affect-kids-interest-in-the-field  

  2. "Convincing students that they could make themselves smarter by hard work led them to work harder and get higher grades. The intervention had the biggest effect for students who started out believing intelligence was genetic."

Teaching of Math
  1. "Students most effectively learn "math facts" working on problems that they enjoy, rather than through exercises and drills they fear. Speed pressure, timed testing and blind memorization damage children's experience of math"
