An Investigation into the Mathematics Achievement and Attitude towards Mathematics with Respect to Learning Style According to Gender
Orhun, N.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v38 n3 p321-333 Apr 2007
This study aimed to investigate whether there is a relationship beween gender and learning style, mathematical achievement and attitude towards mathematics. The subjects of this study were 5th-semester students (42 females, 31 males) from the Mathematics Department at Anadolu University. The results of this study suggest that there were differences among learning modes preferred by female and male students, their mathematical achievements, and their attitudes towards mathematics. Mathematics achievement and attitude towards mathematics were not, themselves, dependent on gender. It was also noticed that while female students most preferred the Convergent learning style, male students most preferred the Assimilator learning style. No students were observed to prefer the Accommodator learning style in both groups. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
