# The Causal Factors Influencing Mathematics Learning Strand of Matthayomsueksa 2 Students under the Office of Kalasin Educational Service Area Zone 3

## Abstract

Knowing causal factors will help to get useful information to considering in teaching
and promoting group learning mathematics learners. This research aimed to study and
develop model of causal factors that are powerful to learning achievements on learning
mathematics of Matthayomsueksa 2 students, Karasin Primary Educational Service Area
Office 3. There were 2 steps of doing research. First was to set the model of the causal
factors that are powerful to learning achievements on learning mathematics which was
relation model according to hypothesis. Second was to test the accuracy of relation model
according to hypothesis. Samples in this research were 484 Matthayomsueksa 2 students
from 10 schools in Karasin Primary Educational Service Area Office 3 by using multi –stage
random sampling. The research instruments were 1) multiple choices test. There were 6
tests. There were 30 items in the first test with the difficulty ranged from .20 to .80
and the discriminating power ranged from .25 to .75, a reliability of .78. A 20 item multiple
choices of the 2nd to 5th test with the difficulty ranged from .20 to .80 and the discriminating
power ranged from .25 to .75, a reliability of .83. And a 40 item multiple choices of the
6th test with the difficulty ranged from .20 to .80 and the discriminating power ranged
from .25 to .75, a reliability of .83 and 2) A 5 level rating scale measurement which
was divided to 6 parts with the discriminating power ranged from 1.78 to 5.88 and a
reliability of 6 parts ranged from .78 to .97. Correlation analysis and Path analysis techniques
were used in analysis data.
The results of the research was that there were 8 variables of the causal factors that
are powerful to learning achievements on learning mathematics of Matthayomsueksa 2 students,
Karasin Primary Educational Service Area Office 3.
Factor that is powerful which was a direct cause to mathematics learning
achievements of Matthayomsueksa 2 was the basic knowledge.
Factors that are powerful which were direct and indirect cause to mathematics
learning achievements of Matthayomsueksa 2 were studying skill, parents attention and
attitude towards studying mathematics.
Factors that are powerful which was an indirect cause to mathematics learning
achievements of Matthayomsueksa 2 were the quality in teaching of teachers, motivation,
imagination about yourself and study intention.
