This is an extract from Ben Woodford’s Statistics class. The students are working on finding patterns in Pascal’s Triangle and then making a pattern of their own that they share with each other. You will notice that we hear primarily from the male students in the class during the video. With the exception of the ending when one of the young women presents the pattern she created. One reason for the gender imbalance in the discussions is that the class has 19 males and 5 females. The school itself, a new school on the central coast of California, is 60% male and 40% female. The teachers and administrators are working to improve the ratio of males to females at the school as well as the ratio of male to female students in the Statistics course.
