According to Ma.X and J.Xu (2004) has reported that mathematics has the confidences and also the attitude towards mathematics will be affective Stacey who will find that the students along with their positive attitude for mathematics progress to be more effective behavioural along with the developed conceptual understanding.
It has been also observed that from the very beginning, when the gaining of knowledge was understood that will be beneficial for the person, Mathematics was taught in Maldives along with Arabic and Dhivehi. This education practice is seen before schools as well as the educational centres were built. In the old text books, which were followed until recently, teachers explain the questions which are provided in the book and answer them by looking at the book. However, the new text books are designed for the students to conceptualized and find the answers for themselves with the guidance of the teacher (Akey, 2006).
From different research studies, we have seen that there are different factors which will facilitate the learning as example, readiness, mental health and teachers’ personality or the motivation mental set up. In similar way, the number of studies will indicate that students will learn and achieve the correlated with educational attainment with the concern of parents. In this instance, it has been seen that there are students whose parents had attained less in school and having lower grades, also have low marks in mathematics that those students whose parents has found to attend higher level of education with high marks in mathematics.
Research also finds that there are various factors which will affect the learning of students in mathematics. Some of those factors affect those students in learning the Demographic factors like gender or parents’ educational level as well as socio economic status. As next instrumental factors in curriculum, there are instructional strategies as well as the methods, the competency of teachers and the facilities of school context. There are the third factor which is also an individual factor like self–direct learning to improve the arithmetic ability together with the motivation and concentration (Arslan, Çanl?, & Sabo, 2012).
This research will be a good tool for the management of the schools, teachers and even the parents to understand the issues behind student’s overall attitude towards Mathematics, why students achieve low on this subject and the relationship between the student’s attitude on Mathematics and the students’ academic performance.
In the research methodology, both kinds of researches, qualitative as well as quantitative researches have been carried out.
The target group of the research are the Grade 7 students of one of the government schools in Maldives. From 1979, this education centre has been successfully educating many young minds under the same roof, from grade 1 to grade 7, and recently they have incorporated pre-school age group to the school.
According to the leading teacher of grade 7, the performance of students on mathematics is very low.
Mathematics is a compulsory subject for all the students at the school just like all the other government schools.
The school does not hold special programs on Mathematics specifically, however, the school helps out students in every subject that the student is weak by conducting remedial classes.
SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
So, the impact on the performance of students, it is very much important to understand the needs of the mathematics firsts and thereby, teachers as well as the school management who will strategize the ways for guiding the students in case of changing the attitude towards positive one. There is better as well as more productive academic performance will be thus achieved through these manners.
To determine if there is any effect of attitude towards mathematics on the academic performance of Grade seven students in mathematics.
RESEARCH SUBSIDIARY QUESTION
This attitude towards mathematics can be defined as the students’ organized predisposition to think, feel, perceive or behave towards mathematics,
Other objective questions are said as:
1. To assess the attitude of the students’ towards mathematics at the secondary school level.
2. To examine the status of secondary school students’ for the achievement in mathematics.
3. To identify the factors affects the learning of students in mathematics in seven grades.
4. To investigate the correlation among the students’ achievement or attitude as well as the factors that affects the learning mathematics in the government school of Maldives.
Based on these objectives the following subsidiary research questions are setting up:
1. What are those factors which will affect the learning of mathematics among students in seven grades?
2. What is the relationship among the students to achieve the attitude for solving mathematics and the factors that affects for learning the same in the government school of Maldives?
3. What will be the status for achievement in students’ mathematics?
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This study thus very particularly is used for addressing the attitude of the student when the mathematics as well as the factors has been affected the learning system for the seven standard in the said school. Thus the paper is designed for helping the society, particularly the parents and also the teachers and other students in in the government school of Maldives.
The paper has been designed for showing the various ways for overcoming the problems associated with the students towards the subject of mathematics in this education centre. This is thus believed is the sense that there would be significant policies which is always been followed in different level of the under secondary education. The knowledge has been thus added with the barriers as well as the possibilities for exploring as well as exploring the barriers encountered. In addition with this, there are other studies which are expected to be indicated for some general problems as well as the needs of the seven standard students who do have positive attitude as well as their achievement in this subject of mathematics. This is thereby, would go to help those students and other associates who are concerned with appropriate measures for minimising the problem in case of teaching as well as the learning mathematics. And, as the final case, his findings of this research will have to lay out the foundations for their further investigation (ERDOGAN, BAYRAM, & DEN?Z, 2008).
LIMITATIONS OF STUDY
Moreover, the rearrangement of the observed students on the basis of the behaviours as well as variation among the inability of the teacher or the methodology as well as the way of assessment etc. is considered as the limitation in this study. Also, the researchers have utilised the different methods to have a clear picture of the school. In addition with this, the researcher has utilised other options for getting the clear observation for each school. Other than that, there is some problem while interviewed the teachers of mathematics. At the time of appointment for the interview, it is required for another appointment for the day to give any reason which is then coincided with the classroom teaching. Some teachers were found unavailable at the time of the appointment inside the school compound.
Some problems also have been found at the time of achievement test which is taken for the selected students. Those students have not been found to be volunteered while coming and take the test for the opposite shift at the time of learning. The researcher has only come into contacts with those selected students only after the end of their classes in the school time. For more clarity of the research the document review has been followed for the student with no result that would be necessary with the necessary quality for the benefit of the study and also almost all kind of school record which was not been volunteered for giving the information properly. The information which is given by then to the researcher, many of those have shown vague as well as not clear. The review guide thus could not be followed in this study. Additionally, the methods followed for filling the questionnaires by those selected students without any assistance was not found easy. Also, the efforts which has been made in such a way that the questions have been set following a simple guidelines so that any student can understand and also fill up the questionnaires when the researcher as well as some of assistant teachers have played the role of supervisor for helping them by clarifying the questions which are difficult for understand (Garc´?a-Santillan´, Carlos-Castro, & Garduno-Trejo, 2012).
