Abstract

This study was conducted to determine learning style and mathematics achievement among High Performance School (HPS) students. 362 form four students were selected to be the respondents of the study. Using survey method, a set of questionnaire which has two parts of A and B. Part A is designed for demographic factors on respondent's profile and part B is the Index of Learning Style (ILS) which has 44 items. The ILS has four dimensions that include active and reflective, concrete and intuitive, visual and verbal as well as Sequential and global. While the achievement test was based on the respondents' final year examination grade. The collected data was being processed by SPPS version 20.0 which has shown that the value of Cronbach Apha for the pilot study was 0.895 for ILS.The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics including t-test and Pearson correlation. The findings revealed that most students tend balance learning style among active, concrete, visua, Sequential and gobal. Furthermore, there is a significance difference between learning style of visual, verbal, Sequential and global based on gender.In addition, there exist a relationship between active and reflective learning style and mathematics achievement.
