Secondly, participants were Arab male students only, with little background in English. The number of students that took Calculus I in all the seven terms are presented in Table 1. News Details However, the Arabic language remains the main lan- guage of instruction at the primary and secondary levels.

At the university entry level, different Middle Eastern universities use different programmes to bridge the gap that this language switch may cause.

Tojadal Firstly, our data collection method and analysis are quantitative in nature. Almost all these students have Arabic as their first language as well as it being the language of instruction ,ath their previous schooling. The first column of Table 5 is the name of the variable, followed by degree of freedom, the estimate of the parameter, standard error, and the associated t-value, and p-value.

Number of students from each Term. KFUPM Resources v3 Among the academic terms, semester appears to be the only significant term msth compared to the reference term On the other hand, jointly, the two mathematics courses explain twenty- seven per cent of the total variance, while the two English courses kkfupm barely more than three per cent. The implications of this finding for academic policy are discussed.

Obviously I am a little biased, but I wholeheartedly agree with those statements. This joint English knowledge and skills in term requires a higher predicted Calculus I score than in other terms beyond those already warranted by the ENGL effect.

Summary of the value of each coefficient with standard error, t-statistics, and p-value. This interaction appears to subtract from the gradient of the regression line representing MATH at Term The best model seems to suggest that the academic subjects of the preparatory year are important kkfupm of Calculus I performance. Most of them have had little English background at the time of admission. Thirdly, the variables examined here are certainly not exhaustive and other factors such as student reading habits, level of motivation, etc.

I am awaiting any comments to develop and enhance our program. An exploration of extra and classroom variables for three measures of college mathematics achievement academic achievementDissertation Abstract International, 55 9 Other independent variables include the academic Term,, and in which the students took Calculus I.

The results of the three models are summarised in Table 4 in descending order. They have an effect only when they interact with other variables. Findings from a survey of the empirical literature.

On the other hand, the typical calculus sequence of courses is considered the nucleus of mtah mathematics and vital for any science and engineering related courses, in which KFUPM specialises.

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. A plausible explanation for this might be the superior mathematics abilities of the student cohort in this summer semester compared to the other semesters.

According to the Undergraduate Bulletin of KFUPMthe main kfup of the preparatory-year programme is to prepare students for undergraduate study, especially with regard to the new language of instruction. Bilingual instruction in college mathematics: Other factors that contributed significantly in the best model included some interaction of the preparatory-year courses.

I am excited that you are taking time to utilize the information provided on the website. Husam Sharqawi That is, for Termthe profile of Calculus I student performance is better explained by a gradient that is smaller than what mmath represented by MATH effects alone.

The trend is much more in area of sciences, medical, and engineering courses. Please feel free to explore our site and hope you find it useful. Log In Sign Up. The relation between linguistic clarity and mathematics performance, Dissertation Abstract International, 59 7 It can kfuom be useful for other universities with similar preparatory-year programmes. 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.

After passing the preparatory-year courses, students follow two different mathe- matics strands. The non-significant variables were reported in Table 3. Those students posted to the college of sciences, engineering, and com- puter sciences are required to take a more rigorous mathematics strand which begins with Calculus I, while others go for a different set of mathematics courses.

At the university entry level, different Middle Eastern universities use different programmes to bridge the gap that this language switch may cause. Most Related.

Zulum The reason for choosing Calculus I is because it is largely considered as the backbone of the calcu- lus series. I get to be their mentor, confidant and problem solver but most importantly I get to be their friend. Multiple regression model summary. So, no at- tempt was made to qualitatively through interviews or classroom observations inves- tigate the same problem.
