Chinese Abstract

本研究旨在探討中臺灣地區國小高年級學生,其數學領域之父母影響學習歷程、自我效能與情境興趣的關係。本研究採問卷調查法進行研究,選取中臺灣地區三縣市公立國小高年級學生 722位為研究樣本,將調查所得的資料以平均數、標準差、獨立樣本t考驗、Pearson積差相關與多元迴歸分析等方法,進行資料處理與分析。歸納本研究結果如下:(一)國小高年級學生之父母影響學習歷程為中上程度、且具有中上程度自我效能與中等程度情境興趣。(二)不同性別與家庭狀況學生,在父母影響學習歷程上部分具有顯著性差異。(三)不同年級與家庭狀況學生,在自我效能上有顯著性差異。(四)不同性別、年級與家庭狀況學生,在情境興趣上部分具有顯著性差異。(五)父母影響學習歷程、自我效能與情境興趣兩兩呈現顯著相關。(六)父母影響學習歷程與自我效能對情境興趣有顯著的聯合預測力。最後根據研究發現提出具體建議,以供學校、父母、國小老師及未來研究者參考。

English Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships among the learning process of parental influences, mathematics self-efficacy, and mathematics situational interest of 722 senior graders in elementary school students in Taiwan.Questionnaire survey has been utilized as the research method and descriptive statistics, independent sample t-test, Pearson product-moment correlation and multiple regression analysis were applied to analyze the data. The major findings of this study were summarized as followings: first, senior graders in elementary school students perceived a high-intermediate level on the learning process of parental influences, a high-intermediate level on mathematics self-efficacy, and an intermediate level on mathematics situational interest. Second, in terms of the learning process of parental influences, partially significant differences were found in various genders and families. Third, in terms of mathematics self-efficacy, significant differences were found in various grades and families. Fourth, in terms of mathematics situational interest, partially significant differences were found in various genders, grades and family circumstances. Fifth, there were significantly correlations among the learning process of parental influences, mathematics self-efficacy and mathematics situational interest. Final, the learning process of parental influences and mathematics self-efficacy can predict mathematics situational interest.The suggestions of the findings were made for schools, parents, teachers and future researchers.
