#The author of the paper is a faculty member at the Department of Education, Stockholm University, Sweden. The author had credibility by virtue of her chair and position at the department, is a qualified teacher –educator and researcher.
#$The purpose of the study was to understand the rationale behind the maths –anxieties.
#The study was conducted to find out the loopholes in the traditional method of math education that creates anxiety and fear towards math
#The article was written to highlight the difficulty of a student with one subject may be considered to lie in the basic teaching method employed and can be corrected by applying a better and suitable method of teaching that deconstructs the dogmatic methods. and to find out a way to help the students overcome their fear of mathematics and anxieties by a method of teachi8ng which removes the notion of a “math’s person “ as a genetic trait , rather than an achievable quality.
#According to the study, an alternate method of teaching mathematics allowed the so called anxious students to concentrate and realize the principles of mathematics without much problems and without any fear and nervousness. They could relate to the subject since the biographies of the mathematicians were discussed as well as the gender bias was removed, the subject became more illuminated in the minds of the students and they could understand and respond better.
# the article definitely supports the fact that psychology has a great role to play in successful education and that alterations for m the dogmatic pathways of teaching mathematics does prove to be successful, more acceptable and student friendly. Overall, this paper supports the thesis.

# The basic purpose of the research was to highlight the way of the relationship of affective learning in math and science of the students with the students’ perceptions of their teachers’
Instructional communication behaviors
# the study was conducted to highlight the difficulties or the differences that the teacher’s teaching methods, their behavior, and their instructional communication influence on the perception of the student., about the way these factors interact and the outcome of that..The article was written to inform about the impact of the students’ perceptions of their teachers’
Instructional communication behaviors and how they affect learning in science.
# Clarity and content related behaviors were more influential for the students and such understands allowed them to formulate or decide further continuation of course in science and or math. There was no difference in learning between math and non –math course among the students and instructional communication behaviors didn’t produce any differences among students understanding in either math –or non math subjects.
# This research article does support the thesis is a roundabout way since the students perceive better if clarity and content related behavior are induced by the teacher.

# The author is a doctoral student at the Harold Abel School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Campella University. The author worked a lot with research plan, thesis and format with evidences and statistical interpretations.
# The study was aimed to investigate the interrelationship between the achievement of students’ who had opted to sit for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in reading and mathematics with the participation of their parents at school family night workshops learn strategies to implement during the FCAT along with their kids. In a nutshell, this study aimed to discover whether the participation of the parents with the students produced any effects on the success rates of the students.
The article was written in order to inform the role of parents pr whether the support of the parents for the students going in for competitive examinations made any difference in their success or not.
# The result suggested that the students whose parents participated with them in the n FCAT preparatory activities produced a positive influence on the results of the students. IT proved that the role of parental care extended beyond the level of general care and was important to provide better positivity in examinations or competitive situations.
# This research does strongly support the thesis under consideration that the parents can influence the success of the students by providing psychological boost.

# the present study was aimed at the hypothesis that for the students who are aware of their potential as the master degree students or rather who want to peruse higher education, depends os n a lot of interactions of the teachers to a great extent. Not only do they have the potential to work harder but it is the stimulus of the teachers, specifically those who are good teachers and capable of crystal clear presentation of the material are preferred by the students.
# The study was conducted to determine the impact of the efficient teachers on students opting for maters degree.
# The article was written to indicate the impact of the teachers on the students opting for master degree, and how the deliberation of the lectures aid in the selection of masters course by the students.
# The present article clearly supports the statement of the thesis since the impact of the teachers have been proved to b effective in influencing the selection of the students for their master degree courses.

“The article was written to publicize the information and knowledge gained by the experimentation and provide a background for the scrutiny of the hypothesis.
The results of the experiment were not suggestive of any discrete principles or procedures. Although tit has generally suggested that the parents play an important role in the education , growth and overall development of the child, it is not clear as to how exactly the influence of parents altered the maths learning capacity in the students
# the presented paper has certain elements of ambiguity in it and hence doesn’t support the hypothesis under consideration.

# According to the results published in the article, the parents’ educational wishes for their children when amalgamated with the school initiated contact on issues that were not benign in nature produced very strong influences on the students, but in contrast, the parent school contacts related to the school problems didn’t have any significant, or rather had very negative results on the students. It was also related to the television viewing of the family and rules associated with it.
# The findings of this article strongly supports the thesis that the learning process is helped by memorable influences of the parents as well as that of the teachers. It is being shown repeatedly that the association between successful learning and the influence of the parents are very significant.
