ANALYSIS OF MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES REQUIRED FOR SUCCESS IN NINTH-GRADE MATHEMATICS.
KIM, SHARON; LETON, DONALD A.
CERTAIN TYPES OF INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES WHICH DEFINE THE MATHEMATICAL APTITUDES OF NINTH-GRADE STUDENTS AND WHICH RELATE TO ACHIEVEMENT IN SPECIFIC MATHEMATICS COURSES WERE DEFINED AND EVALUATED. ANALYSES OF VARIANCE AND COVARIANCE INDICATED THE RANGE OF VARIATION IN EIGHT TEST SCORE DISTRIBUTIONS OF VERBAL AND MATHEMATICAL APTITUDES AMONG FIVE SEPARATE GROUPS OF NINTH-GRADE STUDENTS. FACTOR ANALYSES SUPPORTED THE MAIN HYPOTHESIS THAT MATHEMATICAL ABILITY IS COMPRISED OF A NUMBER OF APTITUDES AND NOT SIMPLY A UNITARY TRAIT. FINDINGS SHOWED THAT THE NATURE OF MATHEMATICAL APTITUDES AS SPECIFIC AND INDEPENDENT TRAITS OR AS CORRELATED TRAITS WAS STILL UNDETERMINED AND WOULD REQUIRE FURTHER RESEARCH. (GD)
