    it is important to remember that ‘most people at one point have struggled with math. Mathematics in many classrooms is based on rote and memorization skills. A classroom that can accommodate gender differences while considering individual styles and behaviors would overall have better learning results (Geist 2008). Certain theories about different gender abilities of girls and boys when it comes to mathematics have been made. In the 1970 's, girls actually out performed boys in all but the

    Mathematics has traditionally been seen as a culture neutral subject that is universal to all societies around the world. “Two twos are four” (Bishop 51), even if a certain society has a different word or base, it is fundamentally the same number. However, beyond elementary mathematics, such as counting, measuring and designing, Alan J. Bishop argues in his article, “Western Mathematics: The Secret Weapon of Cultural Imperialism,” that mathematics is a construct of society. The units of measurement

    Mathematics is proposed to seek out patterns and utilize them to devise new conjectures. The learning gap in mathematics for high school students is cause for alarm. Many high school students who are enrolled in Algebra 2 or Geometry lack the fundamental mathematical skills to succeed. High school mathematics teachers have difficulty filling this void while meeting the prescribed time frame for units and benchmarks. For this reason, I want to explore the topic: Constructivism: How does constructivism
