Mathematics is a subject in which all schools require that you must enroll. Students who take up the study of mathematics find the work extremely difficult and distasteful. Such students frequently complain that they were good in Mathematics while in High School or that they have never studied Mathematics or that they have forgotten the mathematics necessary for their success in the course. This is not altogether surprising. It seems that the teachers in our secondary schools are too lenient, thus, over rating the student. The student then goes to college with little or no knowledge of mathematics.
The purpose of the present study is: (1) To determine the computational difficulties of students with secondary mathematics. (2) To indicate those difficulties which need more attention. (3) To measure the abilities of the students with certain Mathematical skills. (4) To determine causes of these difficulties and suggest measures for remedial purposes.
