Relationship Between Mathematics and Science Achievement at the 8th Grade
Wang, Jianjun
Online Submission, International Journal of Science & Math Education v5 p1-17 April 2005
Mathematics and science achievements have been assessed in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and its repetition (TIMSS-R). Most existing reports are largely separated into the subject domains. This article is focused on an examination of the relationship between mathematics and science achievements based on student test scores. Moderate correlation coefficients have been found from the statistical analyses on the TIMSS and TIMSS-R measurement scales. These empirical findings may help mathematics and science educators assess the need for curriculum integration advocated by several professional organizations in the U.S. and other nations.
