Abstract

Fractal correlations on content and cognitive domains and mathematics performance based on TIMSS 2011 across countries was the focus of this study. Fractal dimensions as reflected by the fractograms and correlations of the variables for each factor were analyzed. Results showed that Mathematics performance is highly influenced by content and cognitive domains if taken jointly. But if variables for each factor are analyzed independently, cognitive domains such as Knowing, Applying, and Reasoning have high positive relationship to Mathematics performance. Content domains like Algebra, Geometry and Number Sense have also high positive relationship except Data and Chances. The findings revealed that Content and Cognitive domains have significant bearings in Math performance of the participating countries.
