The Relation of the Structure of Language to Performance in Mathematics.
Pullman, Howard W.
The relationship of performance in mathematics to syntactical language factors obtained from speech samples was investigated with 95 senior high school geometry students. Statistical procedures included correlation analysis and stepwise regression. The findings indicated that certain syntactical measures indicating logical thought processes correlated significantly with measures of mathematical performance. In addition, these syntactical measures added a statistically significant amount to intelligence in predicting performance in mathematics. (Author/MP)
