Women Out-Math Men? Statistically Impossible!
I am taking an extremely challenging math-based logic class as I work toward my Bachelor’s degree. Half the class failed the first exam. As the prof was about to hand back the second exam, he took the time to give us some statistics that were, to him, nearly impossible to comprehend. The average score for the women in class was 94%, whereas the highest score for any man in the class was only in the 40th percentile of the women’s lowest scores. I was bursting with pride, since I had gotten 100%, and was basking in the glow of women being publicly acknowledged as better at math than men. It took me a couple days to register the prof’s utter incredulity at the women so thoroughly trouncing the men! Unmansplainable!
