Artwork during algebra class by Emily
M, 13, Saint Joseph's School Menlo Park, California

**Emily
is not concentrating on the quadratic equation. She looks at the rows of
girls in front of her. Each one is sooo different...**

**Six girls. Alex
G., Lauren, Kerstan, Daphne, Leah, Alex B.**

**Samer
looks at the same girls. He sees just "girl". They're all the same, he
thinks. I'll treat them all the same, too.**

**Six girls.
6x.**

**Question: Why does Samer
have a better grade in algebra than Emily?**

**Or
maybe you'd like to get some answers on how girls can improve their algebra?
