Statistics Case Study Submitted By: Darene Marie Ramos Ma. Andrea Tan Dag Pandan, Jr. J'Rose Angeli Naguit Submitted to: Ms. Ballada Introduction In the course of our student life, we are always faced with different endeavors which call for our own different skills and abilities. Some may be easy to deal with, while some may be considered as a 'nuisance'; one of these 'mind-boggling' subjects we encounter is one which needs profound patience and analysis-Mathematics. We are Accountancy students conducting a research on Students' perceptions about the causes of low grades in mathematics. It could be the teacher factor, the student factor or the influences of the family and / or other reasons. Our respondents are MAII students from the College of Business and Accountancy here in USLS. Throughout the study one will discover what Math is for some students and what makes them like or hate math. We are getting only a sample from the whole population; thus we are conducting this study on randomly selected Management Accounting II students only. Methodology We, the researchers, listed different topics that we would like to have a research on. After we, with the aid of our teacher, had finally chosen one topic, we jotted down questions that might be of help in our study. ...read more.


At an early age, most of them already hated Math. 3. Have you experienced getting a failing grade in Math? Yes No 3.33% 96.67% Based on the results, our research showed that 96.67% of MA II students haven't experienced getting a failing grade in Math which leaves us with 3.33% who have experienced otherwise. With this data we can conclude that Math is not that difficult for most MAII students. MAII is not an easy course and it requires that the student under this course is capable enough to cope up with the difficulties in dealing with numbers. 4. The lowest and highest grade in Math since elementary. 7 5 8 9 9 9 = 9% 8 0 1 1 1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 7 8 9 9 = 36% 9 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 4 4 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 7 7 7 7 7 7 8 8 8 8 9 9 9 9 = 53% 10 0 = 2% Based on this data, the median of the respondents' grades in Math is 90.

personal interest, love for the subject, and some external factors like peer pressure which lead them to find Math as one of the most difficult subjects in the course of their student life. Recommendation To cope up with the difficulties in Math, First is to develop the interest and learn to love Math as part of the curriculum. The students acknowledge that indeed they need to study more and have constant practice in solving problems in order for them to have an ease with the subject. More time to spend in scanning their notes and understanding it would greatly help them with the difficulties in analyzing the lessons tackled. The second solution they think in order for them to cope up with the difficulties with Math subject is learning to accept the teacher. Learning to be comfortable with each other would iron-out some problems that rise up with regards to the lessons. Being open to one another may let each other express their feelings and opinions and can let them adjust with the difficult situations. Lastly, with the help of their friends or other people who know more or can understand better the lesson, the students believe they can cope up with the difficulty in the said subject. Majority of them stated that "I would ask for help from friends to help me understand more the lesson." ...read more.
