DESCRIPTION:Abstract: Mathematics has the lowest retention rate of any coll
ege major, and it is lower yet for women. In a large-scale controlled stu
dy, Ellis, Fosdick, and Rasmussen found that women are 1.5 times more l
ikely than men to leave calculus sequences and STEM degree programs after
taking Calculus 1, although not due to a lack of mathematical ability. At
each subsequent educational and career stage, women’s participation in m
athematics also drops significantly.\n\n Despite the underrepresentati
on of women in mathematics being a well-known problem, conclusive evidenc
e determining the factors that lead women to continue in rather than leave
mathematics, especially in more advanced levels, has not yet been well
established. This talk will summarize the results of a literature review s
tudying factors that drive women to initially pursue math degree programs
and then continue in mathematical career paths. Specifically, it will int
roduce strategies shown to be promising in increasing women’s participatio
n in math and pedagogical methods proved efficacious in retaining women in
STEM degree programs. A focus will be on methods and projects that aim to
connect and empower students.\n\nHost: Nathan Wagner
