What can be done to change the way that girls do maths?
National numeracy consultants have identified that girls at primary schools are doing so well at their maths, by sheer hard work, that they are masking the fact that they might not really understand the underlying methods. By the time they reach the age of 11, girls who had pages of ticks at the age of 7, are lagging behind the boys.
Martha is joined by Carole McIntyre from the National Numeracy Strategy to discuss the phenomenon, why it happens and what can be done to change the way that girls do maths.
