The purpose of this study was to determine the relation of mathematics aptitude to aptitude in other subjects. The materials available for the investigation were (1) certain tests that had been taken by the Freshmen upon entering the University in 1925 - tests in Mathematics Aptitude (M.A.) and Mathematics Training (M.T.), English Aptitude (E.A.) and English Training (E.T.), Chemistry Aptitude (C.A.) and Chemistry Training (C.T.), and French Aptitude (F.A.) and French Training (F.T.); (2) High School Content Examinations, Iowa Comprehension Test, and Thorndike Intelligence Test Part 1, Form B; (3) grades made in courses during the Freshman year; and (4) the average number of grade points made by each student for each semester. The M. A. and the M. T. tests consisted of four parts, each part furnishing a separate score. Correlations were made to determine various relationships.
