The authors of two articles aim to discuss about gender difference that exist between the boys and the girls in depth, of course, from their own perspectives. Similarly, Orenstein and Stabiner both explore the norms and beliefs that exist in classroom through subjects, like math. Stabiner indicated in her article, brain research has shown us that girls and boys develop and process information in different ways, and they do not even use the same region of the brain when they do their math homework (Stabiner 328). According to the observations of Orenstein, the performance in math class between Amy and other people is very distinct. Boys often lead and dominate classroom discussions. They raise their hands more often to answer questions than girls. However, though Amy is a bold and brassy when getting along with her peers, she performs quite nervous in the class. In

Women focus on more than one problem at time and prefer to solve problems through multiple activities at a time using both the brains.

The SAT is an exam taken by high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, it measures literacy, writing and math skills that are needed to succeed in college. Male students have been viewed as benefiting from the math section of the SAT. “One test that has played a particularly important role in the impression that male students possess more math ability than female students is the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)” (Byrnes and Takahira., 1995).

Although some gender differences in brain structure and function have been found, many of the differences are small or the researches behind the differences are
In the 20th century, educators have dedicated their attention to trying to define and teach problem solving skills. In the early 1900s, problem solving was viewed as a mechanical, systematic, and often abstract set of skills, such as those used to solve riddles or mathematical equations. The given problems often have correct answers that are based on logical solutions with a single correct answer. Under the guidance of cognitive learning theories, problem solving shifted to represent a complex mental activity consisting of a variety of cognitive skills and actions. Problem solving included higher order thinking skills such as “visualization, association, abstraction, comprehension, manipulation, reasoning, analysis, synthesis, generalization—each
