10/22/17 7 There is more evidence to support gender differences in specific tasks Women Better on verbal tasks like spelling, writing, word pronunciation Better in math calculation in childhood Better at detecting/recognizing feelings in others Men Better on tasks requiring spatial ability, especially mental rotation Better on math tasks that involve complicated reasoning Gender Differences in Intelligence Socioeconomic Differences Parents’ jobs and status influenced by own intelligence Income affects child’s environment Motivational differences Those with higher IQs may have greater opportunities to earn more money Important Points to Remember! Group differences do not predict individual differences Range and degree of IQ variation within groups is greater than the difference between groups Inherited characteristics are not necessarily fixed Intelligence Conclusion Why is it important to understand and study intelligence? Educational opportunity Aptitude for important occupations For research: to understand how we think and reason the way we do Intelligence is not a clearly defined and measurable concept and must be considered in the context of an array of other factors

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
