IQ Demise Surmise
Fact 1: An average worker's functioning IQ falls ten points when distracted by ringing telephones and incoming e-mails....
Fact 2: The ten-point drop in IQ was even more significant in men than women.
Fact 3: The ten-point drop in IQ was the equivalent of missing a whole night's sleep.
Question to Investigate: In mathematics classrooms, does this same data apply to students distracted by vibrating cellphones and incoming text messages?
