AbstractThis quasi-experimental study examined student engaged time as a function of the gender composition of the classroom. Three levels of single sex and coeducational mathematics classes were compared. An analysis of variance found that class environment (single sex or coeducational), and class level (Algebra 1/2, Geometry 3/4, or Algebra 5/6) were significant factors. A significant interaction effect was also found. Algebra and Geometry students were more engaged in a coeducational environment and female Algebra 5/6 students were more engaged in a single sex environment.
