A summary of the findings is posted by the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.

Parents are more likely to provide a more math- and science-supportive environment for their sons than for their daughters, a study by the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan concludes.

The study also found that fathers in particular had a major impact on their sons' and daughters' interest in science and math. As fathers' gender stereotypes increased, their daughters' interest in science and math decreased, and their sons' interest in the two subjects increased. The researchers surveyed about 800 children who were 13 or older. The results are part of the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Gender and Achievement Research Program's "Childhood and Beyond" project.
