  We conclude that early experience, biological factors, educational policy, and cultural context affect the number of women and men who pursue advanced study in science and math and that these effects add and interact in complex ways. There are no single or simple answers to the complex questions about sex differences in science and mathematics. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' math achievement in elementary school, and few differences at any age (Feingold, ; NAEP, ; Shipman, Krantz & Silver, ). Although these differences are small, parents and teachers often expect large discrepancies between boys' and girls' performance in math class.

At once a pioneering study of evolution and an accessible and lively reading experience, The Mating Mind marks the arrival of a prescient and provocative new science writer. Psychologist Geoffrey Miller offers the most convincing–and radical–explanation for how and why the Cited by: Description.
