Who is better in Mathematics among your family members?

My on-going Poll Survey‘s topic this week–“Who is better in Mathematics among your family members?” has initially got a 5-0 run in favor of boys being better in Math.

One of the agencies attached to the DOST–Trans-International Science and Mathematics Study of the Science and Education Institute cited studies in 1999 and 2003 showing a slight margin (2-4%) with women ahead over men in Mathematics.

The usual belief—men are better than women in Math–is because there are more men who are engineers, pilots, mathematician, etc.

Also, because of how we use our brain… women mostly used their right brain which is responsible for random, intuitive, Holistic synthesizing, subjective, looks of wholes or the EMOTIONAL side of human.

While men are usually left brain which is for the logical/sequential, rational, analytical, objective, looks at parts of man to solve problems.



The National Statistical Coordination Board reported Tuesday that Filipino women are more intelligent than Filipino men.

Do women rule now on Earth? There was also an international survey showing more women occupying executive posts in private companies here in the Philippines. My Poll Survey these days is inspired by the data i’ve mentioned here. Please go to our Poll Survey area and cast your vote.
