Kajian ini dijalankan untuk mengkaji peningkatan minat pelajar Tingkatan Dua terhadap subjek Sains KBSM. Tinjauan awal telah dilaksanakan melalui ujian bulanan pertama, soal selidik minat pelajar, pemerhatian tidak berstruktur terhadap pelajar dan guru terlibat serta temu bual pelajar dan guru sains terlibat. Hasil tinjauan awal menunjukkan keputusan ujian bulanan pertama pelajar tingkatan dua paling rendah kelulusannya. Daripada 245 pelajar tingkatan dua hanya 27.8% (65 pelajar) sahaja yang lulus. Pemerhatian tingkah laku pelajar menghadapi proses P & P sains kelihatan tidak menyeronokkan, mengharapkan semua jawapan dari persoalan aktiviti diberi oleh guru. Guru dan pelajar menjalani proses P & P seperti dalam keadaan terkongkong dengan teks. Soal selidik minat pelajar menunjukkan 72.8% responden merasakan minat terhadap subjek sains semakin menurun. Perancangan kajian tindakan difokuskan bagi meningkatkan minat pelajar kepada subjek sains dengan melakukan aktiviti-aktiviti luar bilik darjah menggunakan aktiviti "Science Explorace". Pelajar telah didedahkan kepada aktiviti "Science Explorace" selama sebulan mulai tarikh 1 April hingga 30 April 2005 dengan menggunakan ruang Bulan Sains dan Matematik SMK Serendah bagi meningkatkan minat pelajar terhadap subjek sains. Keputusan ujian pos menunjukkan peningkatan minat pelajar selepas aktiviti "Science Explorace" dijalankan. Pelajar menanti-nanti aktiviti seperti "Science Explorace" dijalankan semula.

Malaysia is in the process of changing the medium of instruction for mathematics and science from Malay to English since 2003. To ensure the success of this transition, teachers have to be professional prepared to teach in English. This research aimed to survey the Malaysian science/ mathematics teachers' perception towards this professional preparation effort. The findings showed that although the teachers perceived they are professionally prepared to teach mathematics/science in English, they still need more preparation in overcoming students' difficulties in learning the subjects in English especially for students who are weak in English or mathematics/science or both.

Disciplinary problems among school children in most part of the world have become a major topic of discussion among the community. Frequently mass media keep on giving report about the matters. One of the disciplinary problems is vandalism. Vandalism in schools had created great loss to the government in terms of money. Breaking of desk, chairs, writing and damaging notice board, kicking and damaging doors, windows, fans, lights, toilet, throwing of chairs and desk and other properties belonging to the school, teachers, staffs and their peers. The government is looking at the matter seriously. In order to build a strong and stable nation, the younger generation should be equipped with a strong bond of moral values. This study was to evaluate the effectiveness of The Penalty System Program (PSP) which was implemented in the state of Selangor Malaysia in handling the problems of vandalism in schools. The study was carried out in a secondary school in the district of Ampang,  Selangor, Malaysia.

The study investigated the effects of mathematics anxiety on matriculation students as related to motivation and achievement. Subjects included 88 students who were at the end of their second semester of study. Anxiety and motivation were measured using the Fennema-Sherman Math Anxiety Scale (MAS) and Effectance Motivation Scale (EMS) respectively. The instrument used to measure achievement was the Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT). The ANOVA results showed that the mean achievement scores and motivation scores of low, moderate and high anxiety groups were significantly different. Findings also revealed a low (r=- 0.32) but significant (p < 0.05) negative correlation between mathematics anxiety and achievement and also a strong (r=-0.72) significant (p<0.05) negative correlation between mathematics anxiety and motivation.
