These students are the reason I come to work every day.

Calculus I response profile. For completion of the analyses, a regression model with only the academic vari- ables in the model was fitted with each of the variables in Table 6 added in last to see the effect of the course in question when other academic variables are already used as predictors of Calculus I performance. However, Model 3 is the best model and explains about 36 per cent of the total mth in the Calculus I grade.

The data consists of grade records of more than two thousands students tracked over seven semesters, and comes from bilingual Arab students studying at an English medium university. It is our hope that, due to lack of research in this area, the data presented in this study will serve as a starting point, and hopefully contribute to the field of mathematics education.

Thirdly, the variables examined ofupm are certainly not exhaustive and other factors such as student reading habits, level of motivation, etc. A longitudinal study measuring the ability of two South African mathematics tests to predict mathematics performance of Grade 9 high school pupils, South African Journal of Education, 19 2— There are also several significant interaction effects in the best model.

I am awaiting any comments to develop and enhance our program.

On the other hand, the variable term is also not significant with the exception of term As noted earlier, surprisingly ENGL and MATH did not contribute sig- nificantly to the best model as stand-alone effects, but their joint effects with other variables can be readily seen as crucial predictors of success in kfup Calculus I course.

The best model seems to suggest that the academic subjects of the preparatory year are important predictors of Calculus I performance. The trend is much more in area of sciences, medical, and engineering courses. This result corroborates with many studies in the literature Begle, ; Tuli, ; Jamison, ; Kelly, ; Soares, ; Yushau, Only mzth significant variables are reported here.

Obviously I am a little biased, but I wholeheartedly agree with those statements. The results of the three models are summarised in Table 4 in descending order.

Can student aptitude and attitude assist in placing students in appropriate advanced placement mathematics courses? Table 3 gives three of these mmath and variables therein. Critical variables in mathematics education: This has shown that adding other variables including academic Term in the model add only around three per cent to the model.

This should give some empirical support to the new policy in the preparatory year that for a student to go to either an engineering or a computer-related course, he should get at least a passing grade of D in MATH and C in MATH as a placement requirement. Furthermore, the findings in this study may help university administrations in policy making regarding student placement into academic programmes after com- pleting the preparatory year, and in streamlining and prioritising the syllabus.


Summary of the value of each coefficient with standard error, t-statistics, and p-value. Method The participants whose grades formed the data of this study were male students with an average age of 19 years, mostly in the first year of university life after the completion of their preparatory-year programme.

Among the academic terms, semester appears to be the only significant term when compared to the reference term Contrast this with total mathh explained by the best models 36 per cent. Findings from a survey of the empirical literature. Another variable included in the study is the role of the semester in which students take the first cal- culus courses. In addition, we intend to investigate the effect of the semester in which mtah take Calculus I.

Most of them have had little English background at the time of admission. The reason for choosing Calculus I is because it is largely considered as the backbone of the calcu- lus series.

The Program teaches over 2, students from all over the country each year. Lastly, the interaction effects E1E2T32 is also significant. Our web team has spent a lot of time trying to gather information that you will hopefully find useful. One goal I have is for every student to find all useful resources to enhance their learning and build a solid base in mathematics that will help them in their future.
