G ender differences in mathematics have been the basis of extensive discourse about educational equity issues, and if replicated, the results of the Fennema et al. study have the potential to increase, and perhaps change, this discourse. The results also have implications for achieving equity in mathematics education for girls and boys. It behooves us to consider carefully the study, its findings, and interpretations. In order to do this, we address several questions.
