This study assessed the Mathematics proficiency, attitude and performance of Grade 9 students at private high schools in Valencia City, Bukidnon, Philippines. It aimed to describe the profile of the respondents in terms of gender, parents’ educational attainment and family income; ascertain the level of mathematical proficiency; find the attitude towards Mathematics; assess the level of performance in Mathematics; correlate mathematics performance with profile, mathematics proficiency, attitude towards Mathematics; identify the variables, singly or in combination best predict mathematics performance of Grade 9 students. This is a descriptive –correlational survey with grade 9 students as respondents. An Attitude towards Mathematics Test, Mathematics Proficiency Test and Summative Test were used to gather data. There were more females than males students from six private high schools. The educational attainment of mothers and fathers were clustered in the college level to graduate studies. Monthly family income was above the lowest bracket. The mathematics proficiency and performance level of Grade 9 students was described as beginning. A moderate positive correlation existed between mathematics performance and parent’s (mother and father) educational attainment. No significant relationship was found with mathematics performance, gender, family income, attitude and mathematics proficiency. Mother’s educational attainment best predicts mathematics performance.
The study aimed to identify the factors that affect the achievements of students in Mathematics and to determine the relationship between the students' achievements and individual, instructional, classroom management and evaluation factors. The 239 Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) students were the subjects of the study. The descriptive-correlational design was used. Data were subjected to statistical analyses using t-test, Pearson r and multiple regression. Findings reveal that 1) achievements of students in Math Courses (Fundamental Mathematics and Contemporary Mathematics) is poor; 2)students perform low in both subjects; 3) mathematics achievements are highly correlated to individual and instructional factors and moderately correlated to classroom management and evaluation factors; 4) individual factor and instructional factor greatly affect achievements in fundamental math; 6) instructional factor is the number one predictor of achievement in contemporary math; 7) instructional factor is the factor that affects most the achievements of students in Mathematics.

For this purpose, the relationship between elementary students 'attitudes towards mathematics and studying to mathematics lesson of 500 primary school students in Istanbul is investigated. It is investigated whether there is a relationship between mathematics attitude and students' gender, and if there is someone that help to study lesson at home, and whether they have their own room and computer, and for what purpose the computer is used, and their family's economic level, and the duration of regular lesson study, and the duration of daily mathematics lesson study. To provide the data that is required for the purpose of the study; questionnaire containing demographic characteristics and "Mathematics Attitude Scale" that is developed by Baykul (1990), were used to collect data. It has been seen that there is significant differences, among students using the computer to prepare homeworks and all other students on behalf of using the computer to prepare homeworks. It was found a significant differences in mathematics attitude on behalf of the students who study regulary every day lesson; by comparison of students those study regulary lesson every day and the students those don't study regulary every day. Significant differences were found between the students who study lesson more than 2 hours a day and all other students,on behalf of the students who study lesson more than 2 hours a day. Also significant differences were found between Also a significant differences were found between children of 800-2000 TL-income families and children from other families, on behalf of children of 800-2000 TL-income families. Keywords: Primary education, mathematics, mathematics attitude, study the lesson.
The purpose of this study is to determine the attitudes of students studying at different types of high schools towards mathematics classes, and to test whether or not there is a meaningful difference between the demographic properties of the students and their attitudes. The data used in this study were obtained from 1,801 students studying at different types of high schools. The data obtained in the study showed that the attitudes of the students towards mathematics are at medium level, and that there is a meaningful difference between the attitudes of the students towards mathematics classes and the education levels of their fathers and the students' high school types. On the other hand, it has been determined that there is no meaningful difference between the gender of the students, the gender of the mathematics teachers, attending to an extra course, receiving private lessons for mathematics, their perceived success status, educational levels of their mothers, the income level of their families, the number of siblings, the order of the student in the family as a sibling, fathers' and mothers' profession, and the attitudes of the students. According to the Multi Linear Regression Analysis which was performed with the purpose of determining the factors affecting the attitudes of the students in the study group, the Gender of the Mathematics Teacher (=-.073), the Profession of the Mother (=-.069) and the Educational Level of the Father (= .049) have effects in determining the attitudes of the students towards mathematics classes.

This study developed an instrument that measures the attitude of Filipino high school students towards mathematics, with reliable predictors and factors. Using the responses of 300 high school students from Zamboanga Sibugay, the validity and reliability of the Mathematics Attitude Scale (MAS) was tested using Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and reliability analyses. The EFA showed that four-factor structures of the instrument, regarding the mathematics attitude for high school students, explained 27.48% of the variance in the pattern of relationships among the items. The Average Variance Extracted (AVE), Composite Reliability, and Cronbach’s Alpha coefficients were reported. They proved that the extracted constructs have obtained and satisfied convergent validity. Thirty-three items remained in the final questionnaire after deleting the twenty-seven items with factor loadings of less than 0.4 (Students’ Perceived Motivation and Support in Learning Mathematics: twelve items; Students’ Perceived Anxiety in Learning Mathematics: ten items; Students’ Perceived Self-Efficacy in Learning Mathematics: six items; and Teachers and Parents’ Influences to Students in Learning Mathematics: five items). This study has confirmed the four-factor structure of the MAS. Educators and researchers can use the MAS to better understand the attitudes of Filipino high school students towards mathematics.

Abstract: The quality of teaching and learning mathematics has been one of the major challenges and concerns of educators. If we consider a group of students, a few students are found to be high achievers on the one hand and a few are low achievers on the other. The question arises why such a difference in achievement appears? Is this difference due to certain factors? or Is there any single factor or host of factors which account for all the differences in mathematics achievement ? These questions often appear in the minds of the Educators, Educationists and the Psychologists, but with hardly satisfactory answers. In this paper a comprehensive review of the related literature is done to identify the factors affecting the mathematics achievement of students. Review of the related literature reflect that the most preferential variables is in psychological category are Intelligence, Attitude towards Mathematics, Self-concept, Numerical Ability and Math Anxiety; among Social variables the variables which were considered very widely are Socio-economic Status, Parental Involvement & Parents Education and among Biographical variables most frequently considered variable is Sex.

The group 2 of grade XI section A is the one who conducted the research about “Factors Affecting Students’ Performance in Mathematics at Parañaque National High School - Baclaran.” Most of the students found difficulty in understanding the Mathematics lesson and in tackling Mathematics. Why do students’ struggles in Mathematics, because as a researcher or being as students, the researchers also experience the struggles in Mathematics. When students don't understand the lesson, students ask question to their classmates rather than consulting to their teachers. Students feel also confused with many different formulas. Sometimes students do not know what is the best formula that they are going to apply in the problems, that's why students have lower grades or have low achievement in Mathematics? These, are one of the evidences that the researchers have observed that’s how they came up with the thought that most of the students are struggling in Mathematics. Our ultimate goal in this study is, for the students to gain an understanding of this concept can greatly perceives the world around them. Therefore, new enlightenment may come about with this understanding. In this approach problems are a means by which students learn new mathematical concepts and synthesize mathematical knowledge.

The study aimed at investigating the relationship between parental involvement and learners' perceived attitude to their academic performance in Mathematics. To achieve this aim, the researcher used a sample of 134 parents and learners from grades 4-6 at Bungahan Elementary School. The researcher used the descriptive-correlational method of research, which utilized standardized questionnaires from published research. The study clearly revealed that learners' attitudes toward Mathematics do not affect their academic performance in Mathematics. The result of the correlational analysis is that learners' perceived attitudes in Mathematics such as (a) Motivation and Support, (b) Anxiety in Learning, (c) Self-Efficacy in Learning Mathematics do not significantly affect their academic performance in Mathematics as these perceived attitudes got a significant level of greater than 0.05, therefore, the null hypothesis was accepted. However, among the different ways of parental involvement stated in the study, only the mentoring strategies provided by the parents during the indicated school year have been effective in increasing their performance in Mathematics. There is a significant relationship between the mentoring strategies of parents and learners' academic performance; p= 0.016 (<0.05), which means a p-value smaller than 0.05 suggests that the correlation is statistically significant (at the 5 % level). The correlation coefficient for this is-0.253, which is negative. In other words: as the Mentoring Strategies increase, Learners' Academic Performance decreases. Concerning the strength of the correlation,-0.253 can be said to be weak. Nevertheless, it is critical to investigate how parents can assist and contribute to their children's academic success. Conclusions were drawn and recommendations were offered.

The paper aimed to know the perception of the low-performing Senior High School students toward Mathematics subject. This study also determined the techniques of the students in coping up with the academic requirements. Participants consisted of 48 students, 25 males and 23 females, who had a final grade of 85 and below on their Statistics and Probability subject. The survey questionnaire was developed and administered by the researchers to the respondents. The data collected were analysed by coding and collating the same answers, and the researchers interpreted the information. The findings revealed that majority of the respondents perceived Mathematics as a difficult subject that was hard to understand. Nonetheless, the students were still interested and willing to study Mathematics for they know that it was important especially on their daily life. Hence, the students had negative and positive perception towards Mathematics. The findings also showed that the students have different techniques to cope with their academic requirements, such as by studying hard, by asking for help and by passing all the needed works on time. It was recommended for the future researchers to widen the scope of the study by adding the factors, like parental component, affecting the perception of the low-performing students.

The affective aspects must be owned by students in a lesson, where the affective aspects will have a relationship with the cognitive aspects of a student, therefore this study aimed to determine whether there is a relationship between students 'mathematical dispositions and students' mathematics learning outcomes. Using a mixed method and a sequential explanatory plan, the research was undertaken by first collecting quantitative data and then continuing to collect qualitative data. Where, the sample count in this study was 413 students from junior secondary schools 18 in Jambi City, Indonesia who used a total sampling technique. Data were then analyzed with the help of SPSS 21 application to find descriptive statistics in the form of mean, min, max, and category as well as inferential statistics using Pearson Product Moment. The results obtained in this study dominate both the mathematical disposition of pupils and the learning outcomes of pupils in mathematics. This was reinforced by the existence of a relationship between mathematical disposition and student learning outcomes in mathematics which is indicated by the obtained sig <0.05. This means that the mathematical disposition of students which includes the affective aspect of students has a relationship with the cognitive aspect, by having a good affective aspect, the cognitive aspects of the student are also good.

The main purpose of the study reported in this paper was to determine Filipino college students' (n=336) positive and negative beliefs about mathematics and mathematical problem solving by administering the 36-item (six scales) self-report questionnaire through stratified random sampling. The study was also aimed at analysing possible significant differences in mathematics-related beliefs related to gender, year level, and field of specialization. Using correlations, t tests and multiple analysis of variance, results showed positive beliefs that Filipino students valued effort in increasing one's mathematical ability and considered mathematics as useful in their daily lives. On the contrary, Filipino students believed that all word problems can be solved by simple step by step procedure and word problems are not important. Statistical tests revealed that gender difference in positive beliefs that effort can increase mathematical ability and in the usefulness of mathematics is significant. This gender difference in the beliefs mentioned reflected also in all year levels and in various field of specializations.

The main purpose of this study is to investigate and to determine the linkages of the students’ attitudes, teachers’ roles in mathematics teaching and students’ study habits that may contribute to students’ achievement in mathematics. Questionnaires were given to 37 students from two levels (Year 9 and Year 10) ages 14 to 16 from one of the secondary schools in Brunei Darussalam. The questionnaires were designed specifically for the students to find the correlations between the students’ Mathematics Achievement (MA) and three main variables. The three variables used in the questionnaire are attitudes towards mathematics, Mathematics Teachings (MT) and Student’s Study Habits (SH). The variable on attitudes towards mathematics was bi-dimensional with both positive and negative statements. The positive and negative items for attitudes were designated as two sub-variables called Positive Attitudes (PA) and Negative Attitudes (NA). The findings revealed that students’ positive attitudes have a significant and positive correlation with their mathematics achievement and the students’ positive attitudes come from the teachers’ lessons delivery and interaction with the students. The study was based in the school settings that involved students and teachers. Future study should explore on other external factors such as parents’ involvement and study habits at home.

the persistent under-achievement in Mathematics has warranted further research to determine the place of attitude in students 'academic performance in this subject. The attitude of students in Mathematics is a factor that is known to influence their learning and performance. This paper sets out to investigate students' attitude on their performance in Mathematics. We adopted a descriptive survey design to carry out the studies. The target population comprised all forms five students in government secondary (grammar) schools Babessi subdivision. Purposive sampling was used to select the type of school, and random samplings were used in selecting the schools and students. We used questionnaires to collect data from 138 students from the four selected schools. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data. From the findings, we concluded that students' attitudes have a significant effect on their performance in Mathematics. The poor performance of students in the Mock results for the 2017/2018 academic year (with a 14% pass)testify that most students in secondary schools in Babessi subdivision probably have a negative attitude towards Mathematics. Also, the students' performance in Mathematics could be attributed to other intervening variables like teaching methods and the use of teaching aids in the subject. However, we recommended the necessity for teachers to promote learning habits that develop good attitudes thus enhancing the good performance of students' in the subject.

In the mathematics classroom, the attitude domain is closely related to students' perception of mathematics. Enjoyable experience gained from learning that teachers will facilitate the improvement of students' positive attitude towards mathematics. In addition, attitudes also influence students' mathematics learning outcomes. Every positive addition on the attitude of students towards mathematics, there will be an increase math learning outcomes. Mathematical reasoning ability and communication are two of the few high-level thinking skills that are part of the math learning outcomes. To make the experience enjoyable for students in learning activities, the learning activities with diterapkanlah a group setting in which there is a speed race and the race proper. Therefore, this study examines students' attitudes toward three sapek, namely math, learning with the application of a quick activity on the draw in order cooperative learning, and problems of mathematical reasoning and communication. The population in this study were all students in the junior class VII of Pekanbaru, amounting to 84 schools in the academic year 2011/2012 and the research subject is representing three junior high school level, medium, and low. The sampling technique was purposive sampling and stratified and quasi- experimental design using a pretest-posttest group without random. In all three schools selected two classes each of the experimental class (learning with activity quick on the draw in order cooperative learning) and a control class (conventional learning). The instrument used in the form of student attitude questionnaire which is intended only for classroom experiments. Based on the results of statistical tests, it can be concluded that the students at each level (high, medium and low) have a positive attitude towards all three aspects. Overall, the students have a positive attitude for the better aspects of attitudes toward math than the other two aspects. Aspects of attitude towards the problems of mathematical reasoning and communication gets the lowest positive attitude than the other two aspects.
This study aimed to determine the relationship between the general and specific mathematical abilities of grade 6 pupils of Candelaria District during the school year 2016-2017 with some of their personal variables. This is with an end view sharing school heads and teachers pertinent information which have relevance to an understanding of the individual needs of pupils. Thus, the content of mathematics instruction can be identified on hand and the appropriate teaching strategies and techniques can be applied on the sample of 195 grade 6 pupils were the subjects of the investigation. The descriptive research was used as the method of investigation. The main data gathering tool was the Mathematics Achievement Test prepared by the researcher. The data collected was the subjects' overall score in the Mathematics Achievement Test. The subjects' identified personal attributes namely, general academic performance in grade 5, interest in mathematics and their parents/guardians educational attainment were also collected. Findings revealed that the general mathematical abilities of grade 6 pupils were generally low as manifested by their positively skewed distribution. The general mathematical abilities were dependent on their general academic performance, interest in mathematics and to the educational attainment of their parents/ guardians.

The main purpose of this study was to explore the factors of Mathematics achievement of the students from their own perspectives. Mixed-methods approach was used in the study. The quantitative part was employed to define the level of Mathematics achievement of the students. On the other hand, the qualitative part of the study explored the student-related and teacher-related factors of the students' mathematics achievement. The participants of the study were the 247 and 10 of these Grade 7 students of Moonwalk National High School who are officially enrolled for the School Year 2019-2020. Qualitative data were gathered through a 6-item open-ended questionnaire developed by the researcher and through a Focus Group Discussion attended by ten selected students. Whereas, quantitative data were the first quarter GPA of the participants in their Mathematics class. Data analysis involved mean, standard deviation, frequency and percentage for quantitative data while thematic analysis and a simple document analysis were employed for qualitative data. Results show that most of the Grade 7 students have fairly satisfactory achievement in Mathematics. Analysis of the qualitative data shows that student-related factor of Mathematics achievement include interest, self-confidence, attitude towards Math, motivation, perseverance and commitment, compliance, attendance, class participation, study habits, peer support, family support, technology aided learning, asking questions, math self-concept, math anxiety, talkativeness, English language comprehension, concentration/focus, health condition and nutrition, and computer gaming. Moreover, students reported that teacher-related factors of their mathematics achievement include traits such as being kind, energetic, strict, cheerful, positive, hardworking, patient, confident and responsible. Results further reveal that teacher's humor, motivation towards students, competence, mastery of content and teaching methods and strategies such as the use of varied learning activities (e.g. songs, manipulatives, games, etc.), code-switching, good explaining strategy, and collaborative learning positively contribute to their Mathematics achievement. However, teacher's anger, yelling at students, teaching too fast, teaching more than one lessons a day, teaching different lessons everyday and workload were reported by the students as factors that negatively influenced their Mathematics achievement. In addition, curriculum and noisy learning environment were other factors found to negatively impact mathematics achievement. As a result, teachers are encouraged to have awareness and to take into consideration these various factors that help and hinder their students' achievement in Mathematics.

This paper determines the relationship between attitude and performance in Mathematics of 105 Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) freshman students by using correlational research with the questionnaire as the main instrument. The study found that the performance in Mathematics I of the respondents was below average. Their attitudes are significantly correlated with their performance in Mathematics I. The higher their positive attitude, the higher their performance (r=.792**, p<0.01), whereas the higher their negative attitude the lower their performance (r= -.940**, p<0.01). Further, the respondents believe that working with Mathematics problems will make them better critical thinkers and they assume that they have more chance of becoming successful in life if they are good in Mathematics. However, the respondents consider Mathematics as the most difficult subject. They were scared of Mathematics problems and easily give up with answering when they cannot solve them. The ...
