Skiing is definitely separated by sex! In cross-country skiing, men have the same advantages over women as in running. Look up the timing, men are faster. In downhill skiing, strength is needed to withstand several G when turning quickly. Men has a big advantage because they are stronger.

The only cases where gender separation isn't needed, would be those where neither strength nor endurance matters. Maybe shooting, where good aim is what you need?

The purpose of a course may very well be something like "learn math up to some level, _and_ prepare the student for more advanced work". Obligatory latex exercises can very well be part of the latter.

The math in some course may be doable in word, but teachers know it'll be way too much work to get right later on.
