Final Post on Women and Math
Here are a couple articles people sent to me featuring women who have no problem with math, and in fact, excel. The second link is more related to number patterns and the first is about the way women who excel at maths are, or were in the recent past, treated.
Patterns have never been difficult for me personally and science has never been a problem for me. While I can accept that rote computations may be more of a right/left brain capability, the fact that articles like the two below even have to be written tend to tell me that there is a still gender difference, if not in the capability of women, then in the perception of that capability.
