Abstract

The present study examined the effects of gender and different types of music on learning mathematics among students. Forty secondary school student participated in this study. In an experiment, forty participants were asked to read and understand the matric topic, which is one of the topics in Mathematics for the upper secondary level. Half of the participants learned mathematics (i.e., the Matric topic) while listening to the classical music, whereas another half learned mathematics while listening to the pop music. Further, there were an equivalent number of female and male participants in each music condition. Results showed that there was no significant difference in learning mathematics between genders. In terms of learning mathematics between the two types of music (classical vs. pop), no significant difference in mathematics performance was observed. Nevertheless, the mean scores revealed that participant’s performances in listening to classical music were slightly better than pop music, suggesting that participants may have benefited a bit more from classical music. The present findings shed further light on the effects of classical music and pop music on learning mathematics.
