ab: Summary: We describe empirical research into the question which possible
themes for mathematical modeling interest Dutch high school students.
We investigate possible differences between boys’ and girls’
interests. We also study differences between students in two different
streams of the Dutch school system, called havo and vwo. Our study
confirms in the mathematical domain the conclusion of international
surveys about students’ interests in the natural sciences that there
are marked differences between boys and girls. However, our study did
not find such differences between the havo and vwo streams, although
Dutch literature suggested otherwise.
