1.) Prof. Barbara Oakley of Oakland University and the author of a book on learning writes that contrary to the new movement to make #STEM subjects of which #maths is the sine qua non a fun to learn.

All learning isn't-and shouldn't be "fun".
Even though the following 👇👇👇Rhymes were developed to make learning #maths fun!

She state in firm terms to "Make Your Daughter Practice Maths. She'll Thank You later".
Boys and girls have on average similar abilities in #maths

But girls in addition have a consistent advantage than boys in #reading and #writing.

The consequence?👇👇👇
Girls typically think they are better at language arts than maths! Thereby reinforcing an interest and motivation to improve #skills in these areas via more practice than in #Maths

Boys think and act the same way about maths versus language arts.

The link 🖕🖕🖕provides data of where boys outperform girls in maths
#STEM in #US
Well, there's no such thing as a "maths person" and attending an all #girl's school isn't necessarily what makes a girl good at maths

See 👇👇👇nytimes.com/2017/05/15/wel…
"Do your daughter a favour-give her a little extra maths practice each day! Even if she finds it painful. In the long run, She'll Thank you for it.
(And by the way: the same applies to your son)".

-Barbara Oakley (Prof. of Engr. Oakland University)
