A study was performed using a convenience sample of 90 students at a northeastern community college to determine gender differences of math anxiety and its effect on math avoidance. Four sections of an introductory English class were given a...
Cerebral hemispheres; Mathematics -- Study and teaching; Cerebral dominance
For many years, doctors and scientists have known that the two hemispheres of our brains have different functions. Damage to the left hemisphere in adults has caused severe speech problems. For this reason, the left hemisphere had been considered...

Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Secondary) -- Connecticut; Mathematics -- Remedial teaching -- Connecticut; Mathematical ability -- Testing
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...
Math anxiety; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
Numerous studies can be found regarding the development of mathematics anxiety with secondary and college level students. However, little can be found providing evidence of mathematics anxiety in elementary school students. In an attempt to offer...
Mathematical ability -- Sex differences; Mathematics -- Study and teaching (Elementary)
The purpose of this study was to examine how mathematical discourse affects the achievement level of girls across third, fourth, and fifth grades. The Experimental Group sample of 26 students (13 boys, 13 girls) all participated in the Project M³...

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...
Prediction of scholastic success; Chemistry -- Study and teaching (Secondary); Algebra
In a New England private, all-male high school, all students are required to take a chemistry course, regardless of their academic course level. Many of the students and their parents believe, if they are not strong in mathematics, that they will...
In this thesis, the teacher's knowledge on the types of problems that exist in mathematics is discussed. Also, this thesis identifies the teacher's awareness on children's solution to the problems, as well as students' development of number...
Yoga -- Psychological aspects; Academic achievement; School children
Yoga is known for its ability to relax. The combination of stretching and deep breathing can relieve tension and provide a sense of calmness. The study examined the effects of yoga on Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) performance of elementary...
The relationship between IQ and delinquency has three theoretical relationships: a direct relationship between IQ and delinquency, with IQ directly affecting delinquency; no relationship between IQ and delinquency, with a possible third variable...
Let X and Z be topological spaces and Y be a subspace of X. A con-
tinuous function f : Y ! Z is extendable to X if there exists a continuous
function f : X ! Z such that f(x) = f(x) for all x 2 Y . If every continuous
function f : Y ! Z is...
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...

“Was mathematics invented or discovered?” This is an age old question that has yet to be definitively answered. Some people believe that the human mind is the creator of mathematics, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. [N, p....
High schools -- United States -- Entrance examinations; High school placement test
The purpose of this study is to design a placement test based upon the curriculum needs of a target magnet school. The placement test will be a diagnostic tool to assist magnet schools in placing students into an appropriate course of study. 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...
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...
