  • Mon, 03 Oct 2022 17:27:43 +0000: Study shows how math, science identity in students affects college, career outcomes - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Two researchers have published a study that asked students if they see themselves as a math or science person, then followed up with them several times in following years. Results showed those who said yes in ninth grade were much likelier to major in STEM subjects and work in related fields after college. The results show the importance of helping students have positive math and science experiences early and could be a way to help address equity gaps in STEM.
