Are boys actually better in math?

In preschool and elementary school boys and girls generally perform similarly on math tests. Later in school, in high school and college, more consistent differences start to emerge. In addition, gender differences are often larger among higher-performing students but not necessarily for lower- or average-performing ones. Within this specific group of higher-performing math students, boys tend to perform better. Similarly, when studies do find gender differences among elementary school children, they find these start to appear for higher-performing students earlier in schooling than they do for lower- and average-performing ones. Whether a gender difference is found also depends on what type of math the kids are doing. In general, boys tend to outperform girls on tests that are less related to what is taught in schools (like the SAT math test, for example) whereas there tend to be minimal gender differences on statewide standards-based math tests, which are more tied to what’s taught in schools. When it comes to grades in school, which are even more closely tied to the curriculum, girls often outperform boys. A recent meta-analysis of research on the performance of students from elementary age through adulthood found boys tend to outperform girls in more complex areas of math such as those involving more advanced problem-solving. In contrast, there are no differences—and, in some cases, an advantage for girls—on more basic numerical skills and on math problems that have a set procedure for solving them Two of the factors above, age and the […]

A New Year a New Life

It is now 2019 which is the starting of a new year and a new life for everyone and tomorrow I’ll be going right to school. And it’s very scary for me because I have no idea what an American School looks like, and I hope my school will go well for me. But let’s think about the moments that […]

Thailand to America… A long Journey

I’ve finally got a new home in the USA and North Calorina is a great place to live! Flying from Thailand to America was a very long and tiring journey. My family still haven’t sold our house and so half of the family’s money is over there. And we’re living poor here, but it’s still fun. We had to fly from my city to Bangkok. Then Bangkok to Hongkong, and Hongkong to Washington D.C. This whole journey took around a week to be in North Calorina. Also, I hate jetlag haha! Enjoy these photos!

I can’t do Chemistry Experiments anymore

Ah, the good old days and my craze for science experiments. It was a fun time but I’m starting to lose motivation and I also don’t want to waste money. Since I’m moving to the U.S.A., I had to sell all of my supplies to someone else and if I move there, I’ll need to buy all of my supplies again. I cannot do this hobby because I’m just bored of it. You might be asking: “Dan, then what are going to post on this blog?” I’ll be posting about other hobbies and blogging about myself. Anyways, right now I’m still trying to get to U.S.A and I’ll get back “the WordPress grind.” Ciao and see you later! My best science posts: 1. Does mercury conduct electricity 2. Turning a coin to silver and gold simple redox reaction 3. How to make basic copper carbonate 4. Pouring super glue into borax Thank you for reading my chemistry posts. It was a fun experience.

End of the week #2

Hey guys, Nothing really happened this week. But I did took the midterm exam in the school, and I think I did pretty well. I don’t know when I’m going to see my result, but I’m sure it’s going to be soon. I didn’t have time to make any posts because the test interrupted me. The English grammar and science […]

I’m going to make more posts

Hello Everyone! Today I’ll tell you the reason why I went away for a long, long, long time. Here’s what happened: I’ve finally went to school and I never had time to do any more experiments and posts. I learned so many things in these months. Everything was going well, but then one I felt terrible. I felt really lonely […]

How to make Rochelle Salt (Potassium Sodium Tartrate)

How to make Rochelle Salt (Potassium Sodium Tartrate) Rochelle Salt (Potassium Sodium Tartrate) a crystalline solid having a large piezoelectric effect (electric charge induced on its surfaces by mechanical deformation due to pressure, twisting, or bending), making it useful in sensitive acoustical and vibrational devices. In 1824, Sir David Brewster demonstrated piezoelectric effects using Rochelle salts, which led to him naming the effect pyroelectricity. Materials + […]

I’m Back!!

It’s already turning to December, but I didn’t do anything! (I was gone for a month). But now I’m back to make more posts! Nothing much happened in this month, I really don’t have much time for my blog left since I go to the gym. My dad gave me twice of school work because the gym is in the morning and I’m tired in the afternoon (too tired to study). So I need to give more work to myself on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But don’t worry, I went nonstop studying in the middle of nights and now I have less work. Anyways, I’ll be making more posts soon. Bye for now!
