Sheila Tobias and Carol Weissbrod argue that remedies for "math anxiety" need to be evaluated and new techniques devised that are more closely linked to theories of learning. They maintain that proper techniques can be effective in reversing female under-achievement in mathematics and that further research will indicate comparable techniques to prevent math avoidance. Research relating mathematical achievement to gender is reviewed.
