Socio-Economic Background, Senior Secondary Mathematics, and Post-Secondary Pathways
Yeoh, Eng; Leigh-Lancaster, David
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
The relationship between socio-economic background and completion of senior secondary mathematics study leading to various post-schooling pathways has been an area of keen interest to researchers, school systems and policy makers for some time. This paper briefly considers some aspects of this relationship using recent Victorian data relating to the index of relative socio-economic disadvantage (IRSD), enrolments and study scores for Victorian senior secondary mathematics students and "On Track" destination data. (Contains 6 figures and 1 table.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
