International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 29, No. 4 (1998) pp. 475–80
Investigates the influences of the basic mathematics course on success in the elementary statistics course. Reports that a working knowledge of algebra and set theory may be a necessary condition for success in elementary statistics but may not be...
Does prior mathematics knowledge really lead to variation in elementary statistics performance? Evidence from a developing country
International Journal of Educational Development Vol. 26, No. 6 pp. 631–639
A model incorporating prerequisite mathematics performance and other variables deemed to be associated with learning elementary statistics (ES) is developed. The relationship between ES performance and the explanatory variables is well represented...
An Investigation of How Perceptions of Mathematics Ability Can Affect Elementary Statistics Performance
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 31, No. 5 (2000) pp. 679–89
Investigates the effects of perceived mathematics ability (PMA) on the learning process with special reference to undergraduates (N=147) following an elementary statistics (ES) course. Concludes that PMA itself is not a good predictor of ES...
