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...
Group work in education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
Cooperative learning is a highly valued teaching method used in all subjects and at all levels of education. It provides students with an opportunity to interact with one another to not only understand educational concepts presented by the...
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...
Comparative education; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- United States -- Cross-cultural studies; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Japan -- Cross-cultural studies
In recent years, policymakers and academic experts have expressed alarm about the variance between Eastern and Western mathematics achievement. Research reveals that classrooms in the United States are lagging behind their Eastern counterparts....

Information about student performance was obtained by analyzing the performance of twenty-three fall sections of developmental mathematics taught at a state university. The independent variables included student performance on three predictor...
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...
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...
One of the major goals of high school curriculum is to better prepare the high school student for college level courses. When alternative curricula programs are available, how can one determine which curriculum better accomplishes this goal? One...
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...
Connecticut Academic Performance Test; Mathematical ability -- Testing; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Connecticut; Achievement tests -- Connecticut
The debate over the effectiveness of a "reform" mathematics curriculum verses a "traditional" mathematics curriculum in student achievement has been widely discussed and studied. Standards-based, or reform, programs emphasize applications to solve...
United States. Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Teaching teams; Special education
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is requiring schools to integrate students with disabilities into general education classrooms. Many general education teachers do not have the experience or extensive knowledge of special...
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); Personality and academic achievement; Prediction of scholastic success
The purpose of this study is to determine if a personality test combined with a mathematics placement test can be used to identify students that may need additional interventions as early in the school year as possible. The school in which this...
Algebra -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Chemistry -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary)
The purpose of this study was to determine if integrating a unit on functions would benefit students. Previous studies have shown that integrating science and mathematics increases students' understanding of certain topics in science. Typically,...
Mathematics--Study and teaching (Secondary); Word problems (Mathematics)--Study and teaching (Secondary)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of using Multiple Representations Charts in the classroom. This thesis was focused on the comparison of students’ abilities to solve word problems using Multiple Representations Charts as an...
Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Academic achievement -- Evaluation; Educational tests and measurements
The use of formative assessment has come to the forefront as a means of enhancing student achievement in mathematics. The hallmarks of formative assessment are questioning, immediate feedback to teachers and students, peer-review, task-focused...
There is a gap in the educational research that investigates the connection between the mathematics skills students learn in school and how they use these skills at the workplace. Students should be able to apply the mathematics skills they...
