First Year Students' Mathematics Learning Experiences at National University of Ireland Maynooth
Mac an Bhaird, Ciaran; O'Shea, Ann
National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NJ1), Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the National Academy for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (3rd, Dublin, Ireland, Nov 11-12, 2009)
This paper considers the factors that impact on student success in first year science mathematics courses at the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUI Maynooth). These factors include previous performance in the subject, attendance at lectures and tutorials, the number of assignments submitted, and attendance at the Mathematics Support Centre (MSC). The results of this initial study will be used to identify behaviour patterns that lead to successful completion of first year courses. The findings will help mathematics departments to target support initiatives in areas which are most likely to improve student learning. (Contains 1 table.)
