As teachers, we are in a unique position to positively influence girls’ attitudes toward math. We can actively counter beliefs and biases that girls aren’t as good as boys in math. We can expose girls to successful female role models who can impact their interest and performance in mathematics. And we can let girls know that they have the right to perform well in math because they can. When we do these things, girls will begin to see themselves as equal to boys in math because they are.
