To sum up, the case study of female students in India has shown that because they perform well in mathematics, they have high self efficacy for enrolling and remaining in CS. The new domain of CS builds on prior skills in mathematics. This suggests that CS and mathematics share skills. There is a need to carry out a comparative study of how mathematics is taught to girls and boys in the U.S. and India in order to understand issues related to gender and mathematics.
