Differences Between Concrete and Virtual Manipulatives in Preparing 10th Grade Math Students for Standardized Tests...?DATA ANALYSIS This section of the dissertation is committed to making the results that were gathered from the data collection process known. So far,data have been collected on the difference between concrete and conceptual manipulative, by comparing the academic differences that **students** who used these two types of manipulative display. To this end, **students** in 10th grade were given various mathematical problems to solve. The results that came from the data collection have been presented and discussed below. It is worth emphasizing that because the current research was conducted using the mixed research approach the data have been grouped into qualitative and quantitative data. Presentation and...

Th_ Correlation B_tw__n Attendance Patterns And Math Scores of 10th grade High School Students In New York...for an explanation and comparison of the variables. So, if one variable say ethnicity occurs in 40 % of the cases while socio-economic status occurs in 55 % of the cases, we know that the correlation between the higher number is a more significant relation and potentially even a causal relationship than the lower percentage or in this instance or example, the variable of ethnicity. When there are a number of variables and a large number of data to be analyzed (e.g. all of the grade 10 **math** **students** in the State of New York), a scatter diagram or plot is often used to show or demonstrate the percentages that are being examined by squaring the variables and determining their respective percentages....

Motivating Junior High Students to Learn Math...Motivating junior high **students** to learn **math**
Abstract
Research has indicated that children in primary grades enjoy learning mathematics but their motivation declines as they progress to junior high school classes. The number of **students** who wish to undertake mathematics in junior high school is drastically declining and alarming given the fact that **students** who do not perform well in mathematics may not function well in the modern technological society. This paper will discuss the methods which can be used to motivate junior high school **students** to learn mathematics and the role of the teacher. The paper will consider learning in small groups or pairs...

College Math Math Problem...**Math** Problem a) I constructed the first linear function based on the municipal solid waste data for 1970 and 1997 and the second linear function based on the data for 1980 and 1997. A dependent variable is the annual production of municipal solid waste in million tons. An independent variable is the number of years after 1960.
Based on the municipal solid waste data from the graph, I received such numbers for independent and dependent variables for the models.
