The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between gender, grade level, teachers, and the selection of mathematics software as measured by the type of mathematics software chosen, and time-on-task. Research data were collected from 202 third, fourth, and fifth grade students in a single elementary school located in northeastern Colorado. Intermediate students were introduced to four different pieces of mathematics software during instructional time and then asked to choose one as their favorite. Results from this study indicate no gender or grade level differences in software selection. Outcomes from the study did however show significant differences in time-on-task by gender and grade level. These data resulted in some commonalties and several deviations from the prior research in the area. Results of this study are discussed in comparison to previous research and recommendations for future research in gender selection of software are included.
