It doesn’t take a genius to know this fact: more men go into the field of mathematics than women. What’s not so clear, however, is why this is. There was a time when conventional wisdom said that ...
because women and men are wired differently, men are just better at math. While that misconception has been rejected by people both in and out of the math field, there are still some who insist this is true. Other studies, however, have shown that how well girls do in math compared to boys may depend on how they are tested. - See more at: http://www.onlinecolleges.com/infographics/women-in-mathematics.html#sthash.WL0zqhOi.dpuf
