DailyDirt: Cheering For Mathletes

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

It’s a no-brainer that math is a critically important subject. Okay, a lot of people probably don’t remember much calculus from high school — or how to do “long division” — but the exposure to advanced math and encouraging everyone to appreciate math is still laudable. And making sure kids aren’t turned off by math will hopefully lead to more people involved in STEM fields in the future.

"time debt" for girls is different because house chores...


Melinda Gates has been promoting the idea that girls have more housework to do than boys…. so there’s less time for them to do their homework. how does that mesh with the “girls do more homework than boys” stat?

Re: "time debt" for girls is different because house chores...

She’s thinking of her own childhood (maybe) and projecting that on modern society. My sister rarely if ever did any housework. My mom, either. My dad was the cook and cleaned the kitchen. My mom did laundry, but little else. Us kids had to clean our rooms and the living areas, but my sister always found ways to avoid the work.
