Abstract

A research regarding mathematics performance of students via technology exposure was unraveled through a relation between students’ attitude towards mathematics and technology.

This approximation of linkage was researched using statistical tests through structural Equation Model
(SEM) and Latent Class Analysis (LCA). Hypothetical results of the existing difference between the control group and the exposed were proven through a technic known as an integrated model within the Mplus® software package.

The results showed significantly that students from the exposure group have better performance than the control group. Besides that, there was a dramatic improvement of students from less critical courses. Students’ priority on mathematics and technology plays an important role as a mediator for background variables and students’
mathematics improvement.

As a student of Master Business in Administration majoring in Leadership, it is very much interesting to see what goes behind all the important decision makings, especially under a tremendous amount of pressure. The school leadership faces a lot of challenges both external and internal – with so many stakeholders at stake – literally everyone from students, staff, teachers and also parents.
