Moms Talking Numbers

Interesting article in the New York Times about how mothers talk numbers and number concepts with boys more often than girls. Interestingly enough, they said there is no proof that this influences later beliefs that math is “not a girl thing” but given that familiarity breeds liking, wouldn’t that make sense? Moms – please talk math with your daughters!!
