    Abstract

    Pencapaian lampau dan singkat dalam matematik kerapkali dilihat dari segi penjimatan dan pembaziran sumber-sumber pendidikan. Dalam dunia sekarang di mana persaingan begitu hebat, pandangan seperti ini sangatlah penting, dan lebih-lebih lagi di negara-negara yang sedang membangun seperti Malaysia di mana sumber dan masa adalah terbataso Kajian ini cuba menentukan unsur-unsur pertalian yang berkaitan rapat dengan pencapaian lampau dan singkat dalam matematik di sekolah, dan juga membandingkan unsur-unsur pertalian dalam perkara pencapaian lampau dengan unsur-unsur pertalian dalam perkara pencapaian singkat. Ia juga cuba mencari kefahaman tentang keertian setengah unsur-unsur pertalian itu dari segi kurikulurn "Matematik Moden" yang sedang dilaksanakan di Malaysia. Over-and under-achievement in mathematics have often been looked at in terms of savings and wastage of educational resources. In the present highly competitive world this view becomes crucial, and even more so in developing countries like Malaysia where resources and time are limited. This study sought to identify correlates closely associated with over-and under-achievement in school mathematics and to compare the patterns of the correlates in the two cases. It also attempted to seek an understanding of the significance of some of the correlates in terms of the "Modern Mathematics" curriculum being implemented in Malaysia.
