BIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE OF GRADE 11 LEARNERS IN GENERAL MATHEMATICS

Elsa N. Calvez, Jackie D. Urrutia

Abstract

Mathematics is one of the difficult subjects that most student got afraid, nervous, fear and the like. What are the techniques, strategies of teachers will implement for a diverse students in one class. This research endeavor aimed to find out the factors that affect the performance of Grade 11 learners in General Mathematics per strand. They study utilized adopt questionnaire for 385 respondents. Mean, Spearman Rho Correlation and Stepwise Regression Analysis were the statistical tools employed. The study revealed that different strand has different factors that affect the performance in General Mathematics. For ABM only sex (t = -2.332, p < .022). Sex explains only 4.3% of the variance in Math grades, but the explanatory model is significant at F = 5.440, p < .022, Math anxiety (t = -2.851, p < .005) is a significant predictor of Mathematics performance. For GAS Mathematics anxiety (t = -2.224, p < .032) among the psychological factors. Whilst ICT age (t=-2.147, p < .004). It indicates that age with 7.5 % variance on their math grade but an predictive model F= 8.864, p < .004. While Mathematics anxiety (t = -2.224, p < .032). For STEM Mathematics anxiety (t = -2.509, p < .018) among the psychological factors was found to have a predictive relationship with the said academic performance. The predictive model was significant at F = 6.295, p < .018. Lastly, HUMSS strand has no predictive significant
