It’s with some trepidation that we commit this to print. We know that some people won’t take us seriously; indeed, we might even be accused of taking the piss.
In particular, the largest gaps in performance between girls and boys arise in questions that involve projectile motion – things that have been thrown, kicked, fired, etc. On some projectile questions, we’ve seen only around one-third of girls answer correctly, compared to two-thirds of boys.
However, we can make a change: it’s not necessary for physics curricula to begin with projectile motion. Other topics, such as energy conservation, which is more central to physics, could be taught first instead.
See a more recent post. But, you know, I actually do remember consciously observing various aspects of peeing when I was very young. Not just ballistics, fluid dynamics.
Wouldn't you think that has more to do with what are traditionally more male hobbies like throwing a ball, shooting, etc. than peeing?
