Do women "enjoy" math as much as men?
I've seen many studies that say girls/women do as well as boys/men in math. However, I was wondering if there are any studies which investigate if there's a different level of enjoyment of math between the sexes
I don't doubt that women are just as good as men in regurgitative knowledge. That is, be taught how to solve math problems and then later use that knowledge to solve other math problems. However, I wonder if they enjoy math for its own sake as much as men.
For example, I like thinking about how numbers work. Sometimes I doodle where I play with prime numbers. I think trig is cool. Stuff like that. I enjoy math in and of itself. Is that behavior similar between men and women?
