Conclusions

Based on the

data gathered, the age of the respondents is in accordance with the age norm of

grade12 learners. The overall weighted mean of level of attitude towards

mathematics was 2.62 and interpreted as “highly positive”. Study habits had an

average weighted mean of 2.54 and interpreted as “seldom”. School satisfaction

and school pressure had an average of 2.78 and 2.59 respectively and is

interpreted as “moderate”. These profile

of the learners points out that they have inclination in Mathematics. This may

serves as springboards in teaching-learning process.

In terms of level of performance of

the learner inMathematics, the learners obtained the mean grade of 82.80 with

verbal interpretation of “average”.

Through the test significance, the researcher

came up with the following conclusion: there is no significant relationship

between the student-related barriers such as attitude, study habit, school

satisfaction and school pressure and their academic performance in mathematics.

This means that the performance of the learners in mathematics was not affected

by the student related barriers in terms of attitude, study habit, school

satisfaction and school pressure.

Recommendations

Based on the

conclusion, the following recommendations are made:

1.

Attitude, study habit, school satisfaction and school pressure, though found

not significantly related to mathematics performance of learners needs to be

improved. Administrators and teachers may look into the findings of this study

so that Mathematics performance of learners be improved.

2.

In order that learners’ attitude could be improved towards mathematics, teachers

of the subject should have a variety of well chosen educational materials to

present concepts to motivate the student’s interest in Mathematics that affect

their performance.

3. School activities should be minimized

since it affects the learner’s academic performance in Mathematics as perceived by the learners. Learners tend

to lose their concentration if there are class interruptions.

4. Learners should be encouraged to join seminar, workshops,

and conferences in Mathematics to boast

learners’ confidence and upgrade their learning skills.

5.

Teachers need to be participate in seminars and in-service trainings on

mathematics so they would be updated with the latest skills and trends needed

in teaching of mathematics. Thus, they are exposed to the latest techniques and

technology in the field of mathematics.

6.

To have a better performance;

a.

the students need to be given more exercises and drills in addition to the

exercises given in the class

b.

teachers may use different methods, different teaching aids and materials to

motivate the learners .

c.

Well-planned action plans need to be designed to cater to the needs of the

learners that may enhance their performance in mathematics.

d.

teachers with specializations should not only for higher years but also for the

lower years.

7.

Similar Study may be conducted using more variables to reinforce the findings

of the study.

8. To elevate the learners’

academic performance in Mathematics from average to high, the researcher

proposed an action plan.
