With college students entering high school with a wide array of math skills, it can be a challenge to figure out which college is best for them.
A new survey conducted by The Associated Press and the Center for American Progress shows that while most college students are interested in learning more math, they also like to spend time with friends, family and friends in math classes.
They also like having fun in the classroom, and are willing to take a little more time out to get to know a professor.
The survey was conducted in 2016, and included 2,000 students who attended a public high school, a private high school and a charter school.
Here are the results: Most students say they are willing and able to spend more time with a friend, but that’s not always the case.
Students who were high school students and were assigned to a public school had more time on their hands with a teacher, but were also more likely to have an academic challenge.
About 2.6% of students say that they are able to dedicate more time to math classes than they would in a public or charter school, compared to 1.6%.
More than one in 10 (18%) students said they were able to devote more time than they did in a charter or public school, but only 1 in 10 were able a more challenging math class.
In general, students who were assigned a public math class in a school had higher levels of math ability than students assigned to charter or private math classes, with 8.7% of high schoolers assigned to the public math classes scoring at or above the national average.
In a charter, charter school or private school, students were more likely than in a private school to say that math classes were a source of enrichment.
About 5.6 percent of high-schoolers who were in the public school math class said they would spend more than half of their time on math, compared with 1.8% of those who were enrolled in a class in which the teacher was the sole teacher.
Only about 1 in 6 students said that they were willing to spend a substantial amount of time in math.
For high school seniors, more than a quarter of high schools students said their math teacher had more responsibility in the class, and about 6.5% said they spent more time in the math class than their math instructor did.
However, most students say their teachers are not always helpful or knowledgeable in the way that they interact with students.
About 7.6%, or 41.3%, of students said the teacher they were in their class with in a math class did not know the content of the class.
Another 5.4% said the instructor did not provide information about the math lesson to the students, and 3.7%.
About 5% of these students said there were problems in the teacher’s communication skills or that the teacher did not always explain the lesson.
Students also say that the teaching styles of teachers vary widely, with students who said they spend more of their class time with their teachers saying their teachers were more helpful and focused.
About 15.7%, or 43.3% of all students said, for example, that their teacher was more attentive and focused in class.
And, about 2.9% of the students said teachers were less attentive and less focused, with the highest percentages of students saying their teacher did less of a job with the class or the student did not get the information he or she was supposed to get.
The AP’s survey also asked students to describe the academic challenges they experienced as students in the college admissions process.
Nearly one in five (19%) students who received a college application said they had been in the admissions process, and another 13.6 percentage points (21%) said they experienced academic stress related to their college application.
This included about one in four students who experienced academic pressure to drop out of college and another in 10 who had difficulty applying for a job.
Many students reported experiencing academic pressure, with about one-quarter (24.4%) saying they had experienced pressure to change majors or major out of concern about the school, and nearly one in three (28.3%) students (20.2%) said that their parents or a relative pressured them to change major.
About 6.1% of applicants reported being unable to get into a particular school due to academic pressure.
Some students say it was because of a combination of factors, including lack of interest or confidence in their ability to find a school, lack of support from their parents, a lack of financial support from the school and the fact that their college applications were not accepted.
About 3.5 percent of students who had a college admission process said they received a letter from a college stating that they had applied for admission, and the remaining 1.5 percentage points said they did not.
The results of this survey were collected between August 1, 2016, to August 7, 2016.
