ABSRACT

On this study the students study habits where tested, in here it

was said that if you overworked you’re mind wouldn’t function that much

and it will result to a bad study habit and bad result so you must be very

clear about what you want to accomplish during your study time to help

you focused on what you’re studying.

The extent of Behavioural Traits of grade 10 – Newton students in

terms of attitude has a mean of 2.97 and SD of 0.62 which is verbally

interpreted as Moderately High. The level of Performance of Grade 10 –

Newton students in Mathematics has a mean of 86.52, point grade

equivalent of 3.72 and standard deviation of 1.13, interpreted as High.

Based on the result on the significant effects of behavioural trait in terms of

attitude to the performance in mathematics of grade 10 students the P –

value of 0.002 is greater than to the a – value of 0.05. Therefore, there is

enough evidence to support the study that there is no significant effect on

the effect of study habit on mathematics of Grade 10 – Newton students.

CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction

Study habits are mostly known as doing you’re assignment at home

or library, studying at home learning and studying you’re lesson at school

or to the university that you go to. What could be the effect of study habit

on mathematics on your daily life, it could help you on your lesson and in

mathematics problem you could try and make your own solution on the

problems that are hard for you to answer to those question that might be

difficult for you to solve.

If you try to do too much studying at one time you will be tired and

your studying might not be effective, taking short breaks will restore your

mental energy and you will be ready again to study your lesson. Setting a

goal will help you stay focused and monitor your progress, you must be

very clear about what you want to accomplish during your study time to

help you focused on what you’re studying, reviewing your notes can help

you make sure you’re doing an assignment correctly also your notes might

contain information that will help you complete your assignment. Studying

once a day on mathematics will help you on counting and solving

problems that can be difficult for you to do the lessons that you might find

difficult.

Successful students have good study habit because they don’t do

much studying at one time they require breaks, they plan on what will they

study, they study lesson every day, setting specific goals for their studying

and they work on the assignments or lesson that they find the most
difficult. Doing those thing will help you get a good study habit on

mathematics and will help you study those part that are hard for you.

In this study, the research wants to know what will be the effect of

studying habits.

Background of the study

This shows that there is a positive relationship between study habit

and mathematics achievements and further indicates that the students

improve because of study habit their achievement improve. The reasons

why the students are not doing well is because of ineffective study habit

they don’t solve problems or practice mathematical problems because for

the mathematics consume time they refuse to study because they think

the consequence will only be a low achievement.

There are some difference between good and bad study habit on

mathematics, Good study habit requires your own study method or you

must use an appropriate method on studying they choose to focus on

studying the problems with their own easy method while bad study habit

only does few studying, being lazy and don’t solve any problems. They

doesn’t even practice on solving any problems, they choose to not study

those problems or solve any mathematical problems because they only

think it’s a waste of time, will get low grades or scores and wouldn’t gain

any achievements. It is believe that the student who lacks effective and

efficient means of studying and consequently have weak foundation.

Students that can’t have one goal have a bad study habit because you

only need to focus on one subject first then proceed to the next one.

There are also a number of reason like different levels of

intelligence, lack of good infrastructural facilities and lack of good libraries

and so on, but one of the reasons why the students fail is because of their

lack of effort to learn what their teacher taught them in the school and also
do not study at home because they fail to recognise the importance of

study habit to their mathematical achievement. The purpose of this is to

find out the effects of study habit on mathematics and what achievement

they could get. In this study, the researcher wants to know if the difference

between good and bad study habits.

Theoretical Framework

Study habits theory developed by Mohamed and Waheed (2011)

student performance in mathematics is consistently given attention in

different countries because it is regarded as the main subject which is

significant for the growth and development of the nation the knowledge

and skill of students in mathematics are essential in their daily lives

overcoming the difficulties that one may face.

OECD (2003) the standardized national examinations results

revealed that students performs lower than the expected level this under

achievement in mathematics is not just a problem in a few countries but

has become every nation concern in the past few years.

Dweek.C.S (1999) sated that the students believed that their ability

is fixed probably at birth and there is a very little if anything they can do to

improve it is called fixed IQ theorist. They believed ability comes from

talent rather than from the slow development of skills through learning. “It’s

all in the Genes”. Either you can do it with little effort, or you will never be

able to do it, so you might as well give up in the face of difficulty.

Conceptual framework

This conceptual framework variables which contribute to the

improvement of the performance of the grade 10 students in mathematics

are the good and bad study habits it includes studying your lesson, solving

and creating new problems, answering question that’s difficult for you to

answer, setting goals for your study and doing your assignment.
The dependent variables that serve as the basis on the performance

of grade 10 students in mathematics was their grade.

Independent Variables Dependent Variables

Student performance in
mathematics:
-Good study habits
Grade

-Bad study habits

Statement of the problem

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of study

habits on the performance in mathematics of grade 10 students

Specifically, this study seeks to answer the following question:

1. What is the extent of study habit?

2. What is the level of students performance?

3. Is there a significant effect between study habits and students

performance?

Research hypothesis

There is no significant effect between the study habits and students

performance. Such as following will benefit from the study

Significance of the Study

This study aims to present the effect of study habit of grade 10

students to their performance on mathematics. As such as following will

benefits from the study.

Math Teachers
They can provide better experience when they are teaching or having

lesson on the students they teach, share new unique equation for the

difficult problems, they will be able to teach new things to students and

help them improve on solving problems.

Students

They will learn new equation, they can learn how to solve those difficult

problems, continue to learn more and improve until they can solve those

difficult question.

Chapter 2

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES

Related Literature

This chapter presents the reviews of related literature and its

relevance or justification to the present study. The study habits of students

vary from one student to the other and from one place to another. It is an

important aspect of learning because students achievement in schools

depends greatly on their study habits. The low understanding level in

mathematics has become great concern for our country, parents,

educationists and government. The researchers and educationists have

made frantic efforts to find out the causes of low achievement in the

subject. In spite of all these efforts the problems still persist. The study

habits of students play a vital role in reflecting the standard of education

and the students achievement in mathematics. The students cannot be

expected to learn everything needed about the subject from their teachers

in the classroom alone, it is the combination of both the classroom learning

and out of classroom learning that make up students study habits.

The review of related literature of this study identifies how fear and

interest, together with the students study habits can affect their

performance in various subject matters, specifically, mathematics. A

student must know learning method and study habits, which help him to

achieve the goals of education. Learning through good study habits is the

key process in human behaviour. Parents and teachers always show

concern for learning of the child because learning through good study

habits influences our language, our skills, attitudes, interests and even our

goals. It is a general observation that a number of students are seen

complaining that they do not secure good marks, for this, many times the

poor study habits are to be blamed.


Related Studies

This chapter presents the reviews of related studies and its

relevance or justification to the present study. According to, Descargar,

Andrea E; Cardona, Roldan S, mathematics is a part and parcel of

everybody’s living. It has become augmenting and enriching in almost all

fields of human undertakings making it a much sought after subject to get

to grips with and learned. This holds especially true to these days where

sophistication in all aspects has taken its spot, placing mathematics as a

chief concern in the educative process.

This is further intensified by the use of electronic gadgets where

usages are mostly tied to numbers; thus demanding one’s skills in the

manipulation of numbers. This has to be; subsequently the target in

learning mathematics is to be able to get to the bottom of problems in real

life situations.

Hence, with the demands of the society in the impact of scientific

and social vicissitudes, and with the depleted performance of the students

in major subjects, it is a necessity to make every effort and cope up with

the crazes that are taking place not only for the students in the classroom

but everyone who has a hand to run into the changes. Every personage

must be effective, efficient, intelligent, creative and productive member of

the society to come across the indispensable needs for existence brought

about by many changes in scientific technology and mathematical

experiences.

Nonis and Hudson (2010) specified that, it is not only the general

ability that students bring to a class that contributes to their academic

achievement. Several studies (as cited by Hudsoon, 2010) have

investigated and found that demographic variables, such as gender, age,

and race; psychological variables, such as academic self-efficacy;

motivation; optimism; and behavioural variables, such as time


management skills, relate to student performance. What’s missing from

these surveys are the study habits or strategies that students use to learn,

such as paying attention in class, being on time, taking good notes,

completing homework in a timely manner and reading the study materials

before a lecture that are about to impact their performance.

Hadley (1992) added that, all students are adept of learning

mathematics but the leading barriers are their mistaken beliefs, prejudices,

low expectation and fallacies as regards to mathematics. In order to

enhance their mathematic skills, students must exhibit sutable study habits

that will commendably result in a great performance in mathematics.

According to Riaz et al (2002), the study habits of the students could play

pivotal role in the learning process reflected in the academic achievement

of the students in mathematics.


Chapter 3

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

This chapter present the operational method to be used in the study. It

was composed of research design, population and sampling, research

procedure, research instrument, and lastly was the statistical treatment.

Research Design

In this study the descriptive method of research is used to determine

the effect of study habit on the performance in mathematics of Grade 10.

Descriptive method was used on this study because as what Calmonn

(2003) said about descriptive method was that, it is a way that focuses on

present condition and to find the new truth about the said problem. The

fact that it can have new form such that it can be different from some other

studies, can generate new ideas on how to solve the problem and can

manipulate new form of formulation for the problem to be solve.

Respondent of the Study

The subject of the study was twenty-six (26) Grade 10 Newton

students of Missionari Della Fede having one section. Purposive non-

random sampling was used on this research in order to have respondents.

Purposive sampling is a type of non-random sampling which subjects are

selected because of the same characteristics as cited by Clarito(2014).

Research Procedure

The researcher have different title’s and asked the adviser for what

should be the best among the title presented, then, the behavioural trait

and learning styles on the performance in mathematics of Grade 10

Students was the title approved by the adviser. Next is, the researcher

analyzed the problem and create the first chapter of the research which

includes the introduction, background of the study, theoretical framework,

conceptual framework, significance of the study, scope and limitation, and

etc. The researcher also gathered data for the second chapter which is the
review of related literature and studies. Lastly, the researcher proceed to

chapter 3 that talks about the methodology to be used in the said study, it

consists of research design, research respondent, research procedure,

research instrument and statistical treatment.

Research Instrument

The researcher used questionnaire as an instrument to gather the data

for the research problem. The said questionnaire was created by the

researcher and it consists of insights about their effects of study habits in

the performance in mathematics.

The rating used to study habits in the performance in mathematics

checklist is as follows:

Scale Description Weight Verbal Interpretation

5 Always 4.20-5.00 Very Beneficial

4 Often 3.40-4.19 Beneficial

3 Sometimes 2.60-3.39 Moderately Beneficial

2 Rarely 1.80-2.59 Less Beneficial

3 80.00-84.00 Satisfactory

2 75.00-79.00 Fairly Satisfactory

1 74 below Needs Improvement


Statistical Treatment of Data

The data gathered was statistically treated with the use of the weighted

arithmetic mean, standard deviation, linear regression and effect on study

habits.

The statistical treatments used are as follows;

The weighted arithmetic mean was calculated in order to verify other

results of the extent in the effects of study habits in the performance in

mathematics of Grade 10 Students of Missionari Della Fede Community

High school Inc.

The standard deviation was used to identify how widely values are

dispersed from the average value ( the mean) from the result of the extent

in the effects of study habits in the performance in mathematics of Grade

10 students of Missionari della Fede Community High school Inc.

Linear Regression was used to determine the significant effects of the

learning styles in terms of the effects of study habits in the performance in

mathematics of Grade 10 Students.

SUMMARY, CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS

This chapter presents the summary, conclusion and recommendations

of the study.

Summary

The main purpose of this study was to determine the effect of

study habits on the performance in mathematics of grade 10 students S.Y

2019 - 2020. Specifically it sought answer to the following question:

1. What is the extent of study habit?

2. What is the level of student performance?

3. Is there a significant effect between study habit and student


performance?

Descriptive research design was employed using twenty – six (26)

grade 10 – Newton students from Missionari Della Fede as respondents.

Weighted Mean, Standard Deviation, Linear Regression and for

the significant effect of the learning style, dependent and independent

sample were employed as statistical treatment to answer the stated

question in the study.

Based on the data gathered the findings were draw. The following

reveal the findings of the study:

1. The extent of Behavioural Traits of grade 10 – Newton students in

terms of attitude has a mean of 2.97 and SD of 0.62 which is

verbally interpreted as Moderately High.

2. The level of Performance of Grade 10 – Newton students in

Mathematics has a mean of 86.52, point grade equivalent of 3.72

3. Based on the result on the significant effects of behavioural trait in

terms of attitude to the performance in mathematics of grade 10


students the P – value of 0.002 is greater than to the a – value of

0.05. Therefore, there is enough evidence to support the study that

there is no significant effect on effect of study habit on mathematics

of Grade 10 – Newton students.

Conclusion

From the above findings the following conclusions were drawn.

The effects of study habit on mathematics was High .Also, the effect of

study habits in terms of visual learners High while for kinaesthetic

learners it was only Moderately High indicating that the students were

usually a visual learners in learning mathematics.

The mean level of the students’ performance in mathematics of

Grade 10 – Newton student was High.

The result for the significant effect of behavioural trait to the

performance in mathematics was Not Significant.

Since the result for the significant effects on the effect of study

habit on mathematics of Grade 10 – Newton students on their

performance in mathematics in terms of attitude, visual learner and

kinaesthetic learner indicating that the null hypothesis is true. It only

means that the effect of study habit on mathematics has no significant

effect to the performance in mathematics.

Recommendations

Based on the findings that are drawn in the conclusion, the following

recommendations are as follows:

1. Teachers may observe the right behaviour of their students

throughout the year of teaching the subject. Teachers may also be

aware on the learning styles that their students have for them to
easily execute the discussion and to have hints on how we will

encourage the students to be more eager in learning the subject.

2. Students must continuously observe their proper behaviour in class

for them to maintain and to improve their performance in the

subject. Students can also know on what learning styles they are

belong for them to used techniques that was appropriate on them,

so, that it can be helpful to maintain as well as to improve their

performance in the subject.

3. As for the researchers, it can be useful tool as a reference for their

research having the same variable.
