Mathematics
is a very important subject that plays a big role in our society. There are
countless problems that only mathematics can solve however; many people even,
students were still having a hard time in it. Mathematics is a methodical
application of matter; it makes a man methodical or systematic. It has the
power of reasoning, creativity, abstract, critical thinking, problem- solving,
ability and effective communication skills all just in one.

Mathematics
isn’t a problem but, the people itself for not giving it a try. Mathematics
makes human’s life orderly and prevent chaos by giving certainty. It is
important to humans day-to-day living as it solves simple-to-difficult
equations that every human being needed to learn, like every student needed to
understand in their lesson during classes, and workers to do the application of
Mathematics.

Some
students nowadays, don’t appreciate the real value or essence of Mathematics in
their lives and often didn’t bother to listen during mathematics class.
Everyone can solve mathematics problems but, some were lacking in
self-confidence resulting to less learning or no learnings at all. It wasn’t
hard to learn and understand Mathematics there’s just some instances wherein
students cannot solve equations since; students forgotten the rules in solving
such equations or they don’t give much interest or attention to understand a
certain topic or lesson.

 These days, students focus on things or
subjects they know or categorized as important or essential therefore; if students
learned how important Mathematics is or the topics in this subject (like
Radicals) then, they will soon be more interested and attentive during their
classes and it wouldn’t be too hard for them to understand the topic being
discussed during their class. Some students also give Mathematics the
impression of being hard when they are encountering something new in this
subject which results to lacking of self-confidence that hinders the students
to learn.

Some
students often misunderstood Mathematics for having topics like Radicals which
they weren’t capable of knowing the importance of but, since there are only
three major significances of the subject they’ll only have to categorized it
as; it is included in the memorandum of Department of Education (DepEd) or, it
is used for the human’s daily living or, for the possible use in future they
are aiming of. Mathematics offers rationality to our thoughts; it is a tool in
our hands to make our life simpler and easier, that is what the researcher
wants students to know and understand.

The
researcher aims to show students how important Mathematics (as a subject) and
Radicals (as a topic in it) is; in their daily life as a student and future
life they dreamed to be. Since people of this modern world use Mathematics
without knowing and appreciating it so, the researcher come up with that
objective. Some students were still confused in solving Radicals which is
important to learn in Mathematics and it is the reason of the researcher to
come up with the goal of showing the student the importance of Radicals so,
they’re going to put much attention with this topic if they one’s encountered
it again. The researcher also aims to determine the Level of performance of
Grade 9 students in Oriental Mindoro Academy in solving Radicals in order; to
know if they are able to understand the lesson they already discussed in their
Mathematics class, if they can keep their learnings in Mathematics and, as for
them to serve as their review.

Radicals
is important however; only few appreciates and knows much about this since,
it’s confusing. There’s addition of Radicals, subtraction of Radicals, division
of Radicals and multiplication of Radicals. With radical equations, you can
simply evaluate whether it is subtraction or addition however; division and
multiplication might trick people even students since, they both look like
multiplication. This is the reason of the researcher to use questionnaires as a
research design and was said to be multiple choice to test their levels and to
know if they can or can’t be trick by that.

According
to HomeSchool.net, many students still wonders on why do they need to know how
to calculate the square root of a number or, if it is really needed in real
life outside mathematics class and that questions inspires the researchers to
do the study. HomeSchool.net also mentioned that square root or radicals wasn’t
really needed in every occupation however; for those who aims for higher
education should study and learn about this lesson. The used of Radicals or square
root is applicable in occupations like; engineering, carpentry, architects,
construction workers, those who measure or mark land, artists, designers and
many more.

Students
of Grade 9 in Oriental Mindoro Academy might be on the stage of developing or being
mature in such a way that they’re trying to measure of what career should they
take in the future and to what career could they fit in and, this study can be
a way for them to determine what’s best for them to take and to where should
they give more focus onto if they’re already decided on what to take. This
study really fits to them since when they become Grade 10 students in the next
school year they really need to decide of what career they need to pursue in
order to be ready for becoming Grade 11 where they’ll be separated depending on
the track they’re going to choose and, on Grade 12 to improve and do better on
the said track. If they choose the right track where they best fit in then,
they can do well in college and find a great job in the future.

The
study doesn’t just focus about the subject or topic but, also with the students
and the possible outcome it may cause. If the students take the questionnaires
seriously and still got low score then, he/she could decide either not to
pursue higher education or to give more attention to the subject and the topic
itself in order to be able to do well in college as well as in the near future
to get the best job they actually fit in. While, if the students got a high
score then, they could be more or completely decided of what career they could
fit in, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need to study mathematics or radicals
anymore but, they should continue improving in this field if they are aiming or
considering higher education as mentioned above.
