Hudson, Peter; Matthews, Kelly – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) areas in university settings; however this may be the result of attitude rather than aptitude. There is widespread agreement that quantitative problem-solving is essential for graduate competence and preparedness in science and other STEM subjects. The research…

Yong, Bob Chui Seng – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2012
This study investigated the thinking styles of high achievers and normal achievers and examined whether the thinking styles based on Sternberg's (1988, 1997) theory of mental self-government could predict their achievement in science. The sample consisted of 145 high achievers in Year 7 classes from a Science school and 242 normal achievers in…
