Researchers from UC Berkeley, as well as the University of Wisconsin at Madison did a study which focused on 7 million students across 10 states.

The idea was to try and see if there was any different in terms of math scores across genders.

The grades checked through the study were from grade 2 through 11, comparing math scores between girls and boys.

The authors of the study found that in all classes, girls did just as well as boys at math.

The past myth was that a gene allowed boys to do better at math, compared to girls.

The research on the study was funded by the National Science Foundation.
