Les stéréotypes de genre en mathématiques et leur influence sur les résultats, la motivation et le cheminement scolaires des élèves

Abstract : Gender parity and equality, especially in science, is a major issue in our society. This research paper is a review of various studies on gender stereotypes in mathematics in order to see the impact of these stereotypes on achievement, motivation and career choice of boys and girls. Although stereotypes tend to move back, they are still prevalent and internalized by many pupils. They affect particularly girls who tend, in particular in science, to devalue themselves, thereby inhibiting their performance and this helps to maintain the idea that girls succeeding unless in math than boys. A survey of CM1 and CM2 pupils showed that girls are turning away more math than boys. There are things that remain to be done to reduce or eliminate the gap. The fight against stereotypes requires a better information for families, teachers and of course children from an early age.
