Statement of the Problem This research looked into the correlates of the subjects’ academic performance in College Algebra (MT 123). The main intent was to find out the degree of relationship and to identify which among the independent variables contributed the most in the subjects’ academic performance in College Algebra. Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions: 1. What is the profile of the subjects in terms of the following: 2.1. High School General Weighted Average? 2.2. Fourth Year High School Grade in Mathematics? 2.3. PUPCET Overall Score? 2.4. Numerical Ability in PUPCET? 2. What is the academic performance of Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education students in College Algebra? 3. Is there a significant relationship between the academic performance in College Algebra and independent variables in terms of: 4.5. High School General Weighted Average? 4.6. Fourth Year High School Grade in Mathematics? 4.7. PUPCET Over-all Score? 4.8. Numerical Ability in PUPCET?

Hypotheses This study tested the following null hypotheses: 1. There is no significant relationship between the students’ high school general weighted average and academic performance in College Algebra. 2. There is no significant relationship between the students’ fourth year high school grades in Mathematics and academic performance in College Algebra. 3. There is no significant relationship between the students’ PUPCET overall scores and academic performance in College Algebra. 4. There is no significant relationship between the students’ numerical ability in PUPCET and academic performance in College Algebra.

Methodology
The researchers used the descriptive method of research. Out of one hundred forty four (144) BSE students of Polytechnic University of the Philippines-Maragondon Campus, one hundred twenty two (122) freshmen and sophomores were the subjects. These were based from school years 2009-2010 and 2010-2011. Documentary analysis was utilized. In the analysis of the data, frequency, mean, percentage and Pearson product- moment coefficient of correlation were used.

Findings
1. Profile of the Subjects
1.1. In terms of the subjects’ high school general weighted average, two (2) or 1.64% obtained excellent grades, sixty four (64) or 52.46% obtained very good grades, fifty five (55) or 45.08% obtained good grade, and one (1) or 0.82% obtained a satisfactory grade.
In its entirety, the subjects’ mean was described as “Very Good”, based on the computed mean of 87.63. Result revealed that the subjects performed well during their fourth year high school as evident in their academic grades from satisfactory to excellent.
1.2. In terms of the subjects’ fourth year high school grades in Mathematics, five(5) or 4.10% obtained excellent grades, fifty five (55) or 45.08% obtained very good grades, fifty nine (59) or 43.36% obtained good grades, and three (3) or 2.46% obtained satisfactory grades.
In its entirety, the subjects’ mean was described as “Good”, based on the computed mean of 87.22. The result revealed that most of the subjects were good in Mathematics.
1.3. In terms of the subjects’ overall scores in PUPCET, ten (10) or 8.2% obtained above average grade, ninety eight (98) or 80.33% obtained the average grade and fourteen (14) or 11.47% obtained below average.
The grades showed an overall mean or average of 92.26. The result revealed that most of the subjects obtained an average grade.
1.4. In terms of the subjects’ PUPCET numerical ability, twenty one (21) or 17.21% obtained above average, seventy nine (79) or 64.75% obtained average grade and twenty two (22) or 18.03% obtained below average grade.
The grades showed an overall mean or average of 25.72. The result revealed that more than half of the subjects obtained an average grade.
2. Academic Performance in College Algebra
2.1. The subjects’ final grade in College Algebra showed, four (4) or 3.28% obtained very good grade, twelve (12) or 9.84% obtained good grade, fifty two (52) or 42.62% obtained satisfactory grade, forty four (44) or 36.06% were rated as passing and ten (10) or 8.2% were rated as failure.
The grades showed an overall mean or average of 2.87. The result revealed that less than half of the subjects obtained a satisfactory grade.
3. Correlates of Academic Performance in College Algebra (MT 123)
3.1. The findings showed that high school general weighted average is significantly related to the academic performance in College Algebra. This is supported by the correlation coefficient of -0.25 and a computed t-value of 2.83 which is greater than the critical value of t in the table of 1.98 at 5% level of significance and 2.62 at 1% level of significance with 120 degrees of freedom.
3.2. The findings showed that fourth year high school grade in Mathematics is significantly related to the academic performance in College Algebra. This is supported by the correlation coefficient of -0.31 and a computed t-value of 3.57 which is greater than the critical value of t in the table of 1.98 at 5% level of significance, 2.62 at 1% level of significance and 3.37 at 0.1% level of significance with 120 degrees of freedom.
3.3. The findings showed that the PUPCET overall score is significantly related to the academic performance in College Algebra. This is supported by the correlation coefficient of -0.18 and a computed t-value of 2 which is greater than the critical value of t in the table of 1.98 at 5% level of significance with 120 degrees of freedom.
3.4. The findings showed that the PUPCET numerical ability and academic performance in College Algebra is significantly related to the academic performance in College Algebra. This is supported by the correlation coefficient of -0.29 and a computed t-value of 3.32 which is greater than the critical value of t in the table of 1.98 at 5% level of significance and 2.62 at 1% level of significance with 120 degrees of freedom.

Conclusion From the foregoing findings and observations, the following conclusions were drawn: 1. There is significant relationship between the students’ high school general weighted average and academic performance in College Algebra at 1% level of significance. 2. There is significant relationship between the students’ fourth year high school grades in Mathematics and academic performance in College Algebra at 0.1% level of significance. 3. There is significant relationship between the students’ PUPCET overall scores and academic performance in College Algebra at 5% level of significance. 4. There is significant relationship between the students’ numerical ability in PUPCET and academic performance in College Algebra at 1% level of significance.

Recommendations On the basis of foregoing findings and conclusions, the researchers have formulated the following recommendations: 1. For school administrators: The school must highly consider the high school general weighted average, high school grade in Mathematics, PUPCET overall scores and PUPCET numerical ability in accepting and selecting freshman student s in PUP. 2. For the teachers: 2.1. The Mathematics teacher should create more plans and programs for the development of the students’ mathematical ability. 2.2. The Mathematics teacher in high school should integrate life like situations on the exercises that will be given to their students on every lesson. 2.3. The teacher can use the mathematical background of the students as basis in providing appropriate techniques and instructional materials to make teaching more effective and more rewarding experience. 3. For the students: The students should exert much effort in studying Mathematics. This will provide them strong foundation in Mathematics that will make studying College Algebra easier. 4. For the parents: The parents should understand the necessity of developing the mathematical ability of their children. 5. For future researchers: 5.1. Conduct research that will find the relationship of other independent variables in the academic performance in College Algebra. 5.2. Conduct a study using other academic variables and non academic variables that may influence the academic performance in College Algebra.
5.3. Include the other courses in the university since all the courses require College Algebra (MT 123) in the curriculum.

BENLOT, ZENNY T. FIESTADA, NATALIE JANE F. BBTE III-3D SUBMITTED TO: DR. CAROLINE SUMANDE I. INTRODUCTION College is a very big environment to be adopted by new students. In order for them to adjust in this kind of environment, they tend to socialize in the many activities inside the institution. But in socializing with the different people and communities inside the campus has also an effect on their academic performance. Those social factors include organizations, fraternities, sports activities, and romantic relationships. Students socialize more often in college because it is a big community that needs the culture and rules to be learned or else a student will be left behind on what to do inside the institution. These rules and culture cannot be found only in books. It can be also found and learned through interaction with the co-learners and the teachers because there are times that the rules are changing based on the time, place, and people. But there are still some students who tend to explore more on the campus by joining the said social activities. The negative side of their participation in these activities is that they have a tendency to give more time than to......

In Davao City, an observable statistics of university students from neighbouring provinces and the city’s outskirts live in these temporary residences. However, reports reveal that these housing facilities, most of the time, fail to consider students’ safety and welfare. This study determined the living conditions of university students in boarding houses and dormitories. This is anchored on the premise that the physical and environmental components of these residential facilities could affect students’ holistic well-being. Data elicited through survey involving five hundred seventy-one (571) respondents and focused group discussion among selected groups of student-boarders/dormers, reveal that a student’s stay in a boarding house and dormitory has significant contributions to his/her personal, social, academic and emotional growth.

This climate’s condition is actually very vital in the daily living of the people, as its impacts and effects to all parts of the world; as well as to the people living on earth. Climate change is the state where there are climate variations that result to great impacts on human activity. In this connection, the impacts of climate change on the study habits of the students have caught the attention of the concerned sectors of the government in every country. One of the effects of climate change is drought, which results into the growing need of food sustainability in many areas of a country. It adversely affects the students’ learning and other performances in the school. Naturally, drought and natural disasters reduce the opportunities of the students to acquire knowledge from the schools; since there is always postponement of classes whenever there is a strong typhoon and flood occurs in the country. Moreover, during disasters, many families do not have source of income or financial resources that gives great impact to the......

...Perceived Effects of Online Games to the Academic Performances among Students under the College of Business Administration Education at University of Mindanao (UM) Leynard Bangkulit Romeo Dimiao Russel Anthony Junsay Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Background of the Study In 1958, the world’s first world computer game, a rudimentary two-player tennis game, was created to entertain visitors on the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Since then, the computer/video game industry has become one the most aggressively growing business sectors in the United States and in the whole world. Obviously, games are emerging as one of the most dominant forms of entertainment. This trend goes further as of the increasing penetration of high speech Internet connection and the declining prices of computers, video-game consoles, and mobile entertainment devices. (Lee, Jin, Park, & Kang, 2005) As we know, Internet offers many conveniences. As a result it has made many people depend on it. What is worse, a large number of people have become addicted, especially to online game addiction. By2007, the population of online gamers worldwide was about 217 million, approximately 28 percent of the total online population (comScore,2007).In addition, online game addiction is prevalent in many countries, including China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, U.S., and Canada.

The Negative Effects of Tuition Fee Increase to the Academic Performance of First Year Students of the University of Mindanao

...Negative Effects of Tuition Fee Increase to the Academic Performance of First Year Students of the University of Mindanao GROUP 6 Setting Problem The Problem And Its Setting Tuition fees are fees charged for instruction during higher education. Tuition payments are charged by educational institutions in some countries to have funding on school equipment, staffs, teachers, and facilities to provide a comfortable learning experience. In some countries there are no or only nominal amount of tuition fees in all forms of education, including Universities and higher education institutions. In a country like the Philippines tuition fee is a very sensitive thing for every Filipino once it increases a wave of reaction follows. It’s no surprise since the country is still in developing state and probably millions still under the poverty line defining the economic status of every Filipino. When we have a closer look of the problem you probably see the reality in which it affects as much as tuition fee is concerned, the academic performance of students. Students who choose to stay in school may have to work longer hours at more demanding jobs to cover their expenses. This can interfere with academic performance. A 2002 study by the State Public Interest Research Group's Higher Education Project found that working full-time can harm grades. Forty-two percent of survey respondents reported that working hurt their academic progress, and 53 percent reported......

PIEDAD, JESIRYL V. CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Rationale English, the second language in Philippines plays an important role as a means of communication in many parts of the world, and is considered important in order to absorb and develop technology, art and culture and also to maintain good relationship with foreign country. English is also the tool to communicate and interact with foreign people and international audiences. English has been acknowledged as the medium of great deal of the world’s knowledge (Crystal, 1999). In this case, the educational institution plays an important role in supporting the teaching of English. In learning English, there are four language skills that have to be mastered by learner. According Ronny (2009), we have to learn at least four language skills: (1) listening (2) speaking (3) reading (4) writing. Every aspects on the process of teaching and learning, assessing students, giving instruction, even the books are in English. That is why the students are supposed to be master in English to make them easy to understand another lesson – in this case it is Mathematics. Students have to......

...Technological gadgets are today’s latest trend in society’s technology, especially in school. In our University, the University of Nueva Caceres, almost all of the students have at least one of these gadgets which can be used to educate, to entertain and to get information. There are so many benefits of incorporating technological gadgets in school, such as bringing new perspective and knowledge to the lessons. It may also help us through the struggles of graduating and pursuing our careers. Technology makes our lives easier. Today’s student have tremendous opportunities to learn and to connect by using it but with each advantage comes a potential cost when we understand those costs and can minimize them, we can keep the use of technological gadgets to remain positive. University of Nueva Caceres is found on the vicinity of Naga City’s market place where there are so many ways to entertain ourselves. It is also a private school so most of the students may have a lot of money given to them by their parents as an allowance. Some students may keep it, some may buy new things and some waste it, badly. Students who waste money badly are those students who tend to cut class just to make it out to their bad habits. That includes cutting classes to go through malls to entertain and going to Internet cafés just to play computer games, betting games and or virtual games. There is always another side to everything. Overuse or using inappropriately these gadgets may result to......
