Description:

This research paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, examines how math background may interact with gender on the FCI assessment instrument. 300 non-physics students were given one of two versions of the Force Concept Inventory, along with a brief demographic questionnaire. The trends suggest a preliminary conclusion that math preparation has little effect on FCI score.
