Mmks asks about information on gender equity in math classrooms.
I wrote a literature review on this a few years ago, which should point
you to a number of useful sources. It's included in the ERIC
Clearinghouse (ED Number: ED 380 279), and is also available online at
http://camel.math.ca/Women/BOOK/Gutbezahl.txt. There's quite a bit
about teacher and student expectations, and so should be relevant to
your questions about math classrooms. Incidentally, it cites the work
of both Elizabeth Fennema and Sheila Tobias, both of which were cited by
other members of this list as good sources.
