Ibrahim, Akbar bin – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Attitudes toward science of 654 pupils aged 14-15 were assessed, and relationships between attitude and locality, achievement, and sex studied. Achievement was mildly correlated with attitude, but locality and sex had no influence. Other findings are also discussed. (MNS)
Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Attitudes, Educational Research, Secondary Education
Wilson, Audrey; Wilson, Michael – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
A group test of formal thinking was administered to all grade 11 entrants in National High Schools in Papua New Guinea, and readministered two years later. Only 8 percent operated formally on the initial test; two years later, 18 percent were operating formally and 37 percent were at a transition stage. (MNS)
Descriptors: Cognitive Development, Educational Research, Science Instruction, Secondary Education
Gan, Siowck Lee – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
This study sought to obtain insight into the pattern of relationships between students' achievement in science and study behavior variables. Surveyed were 17-year-olds in the science stream of two secondary schools in Kuala Lumpur. Sex differences were found. (MNS)
Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Educational Research, Prediction, Science Instruction
Hunting, Robert P. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Twenty-nine students in grades four, six, and eight were asked to find solutions to fraction equivalence problems and to verify their solutions using discrete material. Discontinuities were observed between strategies students used for producing solutions and supporting knowledge grounded in physical reality. (Author/MNS)
Descriptors: Cognitive Processes, Educational Research, Elementary Secondary Education, Fractions
Sai, Khoo Phon; Inder, Walter R. D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1984
Three different models with continuous materials, discontinuous materials, and number lines were used to study the operation concept in six investigations on multiplication with fractions with pupils aged 11-12 in a Penang International School. All approaches could be understood by pupils, but they preferred the area and fractional models. (MNS)
Descriptors: Educational Research, Elementary Education, Elementary School Mathematics, Fractions
Cheung, Y. L. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Provided are some ideas on teaching elementary numerical methods to sixth-form students. Comments are included on the syllabus recently introduced at Advanced Level in Hong Kong. (MNS)
