Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Can low achieving mathematics students succeed in the study of linear inequalities and linear programming through real world problem based instruction? This study sought to answer this question by comparing two groups of low achieving mathematics...
Homework; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The value of homework as part of the educational process has been debated for many years. Some researchers believe that homework is critical to learning and development, while others indicate that there is no benefit to the practice of homework. ...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Higher)
The prediction of college mathematics grades has been widely researched. Results from other studies have shown that the prediction of college mathematics grades can vary depending on the set of predictor variables considered. For instance, some...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Block scheduling (Education)
Many researchers have tried to find a direct link between block scheduling and student achievement. However, their findings have been mixed mainly because it was extremely difficult to account for other variables; therefore, not allowing...
Educators are aware that there are different types of assessment. Researchers have reported that not only are assessments different, but the way in which a question is phrased on an assessment can affect whether or not students answer...
Mathematics -- Remedial teaching; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Many resources are currently devoted to math remediation at the college level (Phipps, 1998. Plucker, Wongsarnpigoon, Houser, 2006). These are additional courses that students must take that do not count toward graduation. Universities must...
Circle; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Middle school)
The federal law, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), has begun evaluating schools based on Standardized Assessments such as the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT). This has created a need to ensure that student achievement in mathematics reflects the ability...
Music in mathematics education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Academic achievement
Purpose
The purpose of this research was to explore a possible connection between students’ involvement in formal music activities and their achievement in mathematics.
Hypothesis
Students who have more exposure to music as measured through the...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Self-evaluation
This researcher sought to develop a technique of self-assessment that was easy to implement on an everyday basis and increased student achievement in mathematics.
Academic achievement -- Evaluation; Mathematics -- Study and teaching
The purpose of this thesis is to examine and explore the implementation of formative assessment in a mathematics class and determine its effectiveness in improving student achievement in mathematics. Wiliam and Black (1998) define formative...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Study skills
High school students frequently lack the knowledge of effective study- and test-taking skills that they would need to succeed on a variety of assessments. Identifying where students are lacking in these skills can help educators meet their...
