Although neither ENGL nor term were significant by themselves, their joint effects with MATH show that the prediction should be discounted by 0.
I am awaiting any comments to develop and enhance our program. It is our hope that, due to lack of research in this area, the data presented in this study will serve as a starting point, and hopefully contribute to the field of mathematics education.
The added last analysis was conducted with only the academic variables in the model. In addition to the M2 effect, the interaction effect of the variables M1 and M2 implies that, beyond that already explained by M2, the com- mon core concepts and skills found in the preparatory-year mathematics curriculum as represented in both mathematics courses are crucial as a predictor of Calculus I per- formance.
Bilingual instruction in college mathematics: Those students posted to the college of sciences, engineering, and com- puter sciences are required to take a more rigorous mathematics strand which begins with Calculus I, while others go for a different set of mathematics courses. The implications of this finding for academic policy are discussed.
Other factors that contributed significantly in the best model included some interaction of the preparatory-year courses.
The number of students that took Calculus I in all the seven terms mafh presented in Table 1. How- ever, students are given a maximum of three semesters to complete the programme. Help Center Find new research papers in: Thirdly, the variables examined here are certainly not exhaustive and other factors maty as student reading habits, level of motivation, etc. In addition, students take courses related to graphics, a mechanical engineering workshop, and physical education during the preparatory year.
The results of the three models are summarised in Table 4 in descending order. Lastly, the interaction effects E1E2T32 is also significant.
Almost all ,ath students have Arabic as their first language as well as it being the language of instruction during their previous schooling. Kfupn trend is much more in area of sciences, medical, and engineering courses. I am excited that you are taking time to utilize the information provided on the website. Log In Sign Up. On the other hand, the variable term is also not significant with the exception of term Remember me on this computer.

Contrast this with total variance explained by the best models 36 per cent. However, the Arabic language remains the main lan- guage of instruction at the primary and secondary levels.
Only the significant variables are reported here. Secondly, participants were Arab male students only, with little background in English. This interaction appears to subtract from the gradient of the regression line representing MATH at Term Summary of the value of each coefficient with standard error, t-statistics, and p-value. Multiple regression model summary.
Summary of the variables in the best three models. Table 3 gives three of these models and variables therein. Our students are also recognized lfupm one of the most prestigious student groups in the Kingdom.
Number of students from each Term. The first column of Table 5 is the name of the variable, followed by degree of freedom, the estimate of the parameter, standard error, and the associated t-value, and p-value.
As can be noticed from Table 4, all three models are statistically significant at alpha 0. I get to be their mentor, confidant and problem solver but most importantly I get to be their friend. As noted earlier, surprisingly ENGL and MATH did not contribute sig- nificantly to the best model as stand-alone effects, but their joint effects with other variables can be readily seen as crucial predictors of success in the Calculus I course.
The number of students with these letter grades and corresponding numer- ical grades in the regression analyses are given in Table 2. I truly work to make a difference in their education. The table also reports the models, the multiple correlation R- values, R2 -values, Adjusted R2 -values with associated degrees of freedom, F -values and p-values.
Skip to main content. For a student to go for any academic programme of his choice, he has to meet some minimum entry requirement based on the preparatory-year mathematics and En- glish courses.
The relation between linguistic clarity and mathematics performance, Dissertation Abstract International, 59 7 Critical variables in mathematics education: Can student aptitude and attitude assist in placing students in appropriate advanced placement mathematics courses? According to the Undergraduate Bulletin of KFUPMthe main aim of the preparatory-year programme is to prepare students for undergraduate study, especially with regard to the new language of instruction.
This result corroborates with many studies in the literature Begle, ; Tuli, ; Jamison, ; Kelly, ; Soares, ; Yushau, It can also be useful for other universities with similar preparatory-year programmes. Findings from a survey of the empirical literature.
In addition, we intend to investigate the effect of the semester in which students take Calculus I. Among the academic terms, semester appears to be the only significant term when compared to the reference term At the university entry level, different Middle Eastern universities use different programmes to bridge the gap that this language switch may cause.
,ath Program teaches over 2, students from all over the country each year.
