Abstract

Matematik merupakan matapelajaran yang kompleks yang menyebabkan murid tidak mempunyai minat dan motivasi untuk belajar matematik. Tahap penguasaan matematik yang lemah menyebabkan penglibatan murid dalam bidang STEM juga tidak begitu menggalakkan. Ini menyebabkan Malaysia sentiasa ketinggalan dalam sains dan matematik jika dibandingkan dengan negara-negara maju yang lain. Oleh itu kajian ini dijalankan bagi mengukur peranan faktor bukan kognitif iaitu tahap motivasi dengan pencapaian matematik bagi murid luar bandar. Kajian ini merupakan kajian kuantitatif bentuk kajian tinjauan. Borang soal selidik yang digunakan sebagai instrumen kajian diedarkan kepada 138 orang responden dari tiga buah sekolah menengah luar bandar di kawasan Kuantan. Data dianalisis secara statistik deskriptif dan inferensi. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan tahap motivasi terhadap matematik murid luar bandar adalah sederhana dan tiada perbezaan yang signifikan antara murid lelaki dan perempuan. Analisis korelasi Pearson mendapati tahap motivasi terhadap matematik mempengaruhi tahap pencapaian matematik murid secara sederhana. Kajian lanjutan dicadangkan supaya menganalisis faktor-faktor bukan kognitif selain dari motivasi yang dapat meningkatkan tahap pencapaian matematik murid sekolah luar bandar. 

Abstract

Mathematics is a complex subject that causes students to have no interest and motivation to learn mathematics. As a consequence of students’ low mathematics achievement level, the number of students that enrolled in STEM field are also discouraging. Correspondingly, Malaysia is left behind in science and mathematics compared to other developed countries. Therefore this study is conducted to measure the roles of non-cognitive factors that is motivation level with mathematics achievement of rural school students. The design of this qualitative study is survey. Data was collected through questionnaires that have been distributed to 138 respondents from three rural schools. Collected data then were analyzed with descriptive and inference statistics. The findings showed rural students’ motivation level towards mathematics is moderate with no significance different between genders. Pearson correlation analysis found that motivation level towards mathematics moderately influences rural students’ mathematics achievement. Further study is recommended to analyze non-cognitives factors other than motivation to enhance rural school students’ mathematics achievement level.
